- "Then we need not spare the lash. Destroy any ship that tries to breach the blockade. Cripple those that do not, then board them one at a time and exterminate all resistance. The Mon Calamari make fine ships, but they have proved poor sailors."
Tyrus Meori was a human male who served as an admiral in the Imperial Navy. After the Mon Calamari began to mutiny, he was in command of a blockade of the planet Mon Cala. He informed another officer that they were to destroy any Mon Calamari ship that tried to break the blockade and to cripple any that did not before they boarded each ship to exterminate all resistance.
His underestimation of the Mon Calamari proved his undoing, however, when he ordered one such cruiser that rushed the blockade be fired upon without verifying its designation or cargo. When a subordinate identified it as the Aurora Flare and carrying a load of coaxium, highly volatile hyperfuel, Meori panicked and ordered his crew to cease fire and take evasive action. The order came too late as the Aurora Flare rammed Meori's Star Destroyer igniting its cargo. Although Meori survived the incident, both his ﬂagship, the Aquilifer, and his career were seriously damaged.
