Chief Fardi was a member of the Fardi Family of Thabeska and its leader in the early years of the Galactic Empire's rule over the galaxy. Though the owner of a shipping business, he and his family are known to have engaged in smuggling; during the Empire's early years he began employing his network as a means of providing relief supplies to those suffering under Imperial rule. He also briefly employed Ahsoka Tano, who was living under an alias, as a mechanic and then later as a pilot; following a visit from Imperial officers under her latter occupation the pair discovered that both of them were involved in resisting the Empire and helping the less fortunate. During this time Ahsoka also made Fardi aware-though not explicitly-that his daughter Hedala Fardi was strong in The Force, and encouraged him to keep watch over her.
