Biography

Suba was a lieutenant[2] of the Imperial Navy serving aboard Darth Vader's flagship, the Star Dreadnought Executor, by 3 ABY.[1] He was the Executor's chief of security and political officer responsible for ensuring that his fellow officers remained loyal to the Galactic Empire.[2]

Suba served under the command of Admiral Firmus Piett after the latter assumed command of Vader's flagship following the death of former Admiral Kendal Ozzel. Vader had executed Ozzel as a result of his tactical blunder at the Battle of Hoth. As the Executor and the remainder of Vader's fleet, Death Squadron, chased Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon through the Hoth asteroid field in the aftermath of the battle and subsequently lost the fugitive Rebel ship after it disappeared near the Anoat system, Vader executed another officer, Captain Lorth Needa, for his incompetence. Suba was present, flanking Piett's position, when Vader then ordered the admiral to deploy the fleet and calculate every possible trajectory the Millennium Falcon may have used to escape, before issuing a subtle yet clear warning to Piett that further failure would not be tolerated. Following Piett's relaying order to deploy the Imperial-class Star Destroyers of Death Squadron, Suba snapped into action to help carry out the command.[1]

He was again present aboard the Executor's bridge when the warship attempted to intercept the Millennium Falcon as it escaped from Imperial forces on Bespin's Cloud City, once more flanking Piett as Vader inquired whether or not the Falcon's hyperdrive had been deactivated during its impounding on Cloud City and his subsequent command to ready a boarding party with weapons set to stun to capture Luke Skywalker and the remaining Rebels aboard.[1]

Personality and traits

While Darth Vader intended to capture Luke Skywalker in order to turn the young Jedi to the dark side of the Force, Suba disapproved of Vader's reluctance to simply kill Skywalker,[2] although he refrained from voicing his opinion.[3]

Behind the scenes

Suba first appeared in the film Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, portrayed by an unidentified extra in two scenes flanking Admiral Firmus Piett as the latter is being debriefed by Darth Vader aboard the Executor.[1] The character was first identified by name and provided a brief backstory on the "Lieutenant Suba" card as part of the April 1997 Dagobah Limited expansion set of the Star Wars Customizable Card Game.[2]
