Raymus Antilles (portrayed by Peter Geddis) was the captain of the Tantive IV Blockade Runner in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. His vessel was on a mission to deliver Princess Leia Organa home to the planet Alderaan when it fell under attack from an Imperial Star Destroyer commanded by Darth Vader. The Tantive IV was captured and Captain Antilles was interrogated by Vader himself, who demanded to know the whereabouts of the stolen Death Star plans. Antilles tried to convince Vader that his ship was on a diplomatic mission, but the Sith lord was unconvinced and choked the captain to death (with his hand, not the Force). Vader then threw the captain's body against a bulkhead.
