During a mission to save Jedi master Even Piell and Tarkin from the Citadel, Ahsoka questioned Tarkin's opinion on the Jedi and their ways. Before they were rescued by the Republic, Ahsoka saved Tarkin from being thrown into a lava pit, which he then thanked Ahsoka for her help. Even though she saved him, Tarkin had no problem prosecuting her when she was framed for treason. His unjust persecution of Ahsoka was not forgotten by her former master, which led Tarkin to suspect Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker were one and the same.
