an Imperial Navy Commander assigned to the Shadow Academy, Orvak and Dareb flew in the initial attack on the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4. Their mission was to knock out the Jedis' shield generator, and flew in specially-equipped stealth TIE Fighters. Dareb's ship struck the shields and crashed, but Orvak eluded the shields and slipped under the defenses. He planted several proton grenades and managed to destroy the shield generator, allowing the Shadow Academy free access to the Jedi compund. However, during the setting of the grenades, he was bitten by a crystal snake and fell unconscious. He came to just before the grenades went off, and he was killed in the resulting explosions.
