this man, a supporter of the Alliance, was a native of the planet Tuttin IV. He and his wife, Jioie, had a son named Ryley, who they were forced to leave behind when the Empire took control of Tuttin IV. In order to provide a cover for their duties with the Alliance, they accepted a posting off-planet with the Empire, leaving Ryley in the care of Shran Etison. Tendis had taken a promotion to become the foreman of a factory offplanet, while Jioie went along as his assistant. Ryley, when he was old enough, began to hate his parents because he believed that they had abandoned him to take positions within the Empire.
