Swain was a young female human who served in the Imperial Security Bureau of the Galactic Empire. Under the tutelage of Agent Kallus, Swain wanted to change her status and reconsider her career choice during the time when Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin arrived to Lothal to find out why the local Imperials could not capture a group of insurgents that had recently been stirring up trouble. When she realized that the Imperial were punishing ordinary citizens without justified reason, Swain saw how evil and corrupt the Empire was and abandoned her service. Along with Cogon, another officer disgusted with the Empire, Swain and her friend managed to steal a Lambda-Class T-4A Shuttle and fled from Lothal. They went into hiding on the planet Thrad, with the secret support of Imperial Senator Nadea Tural, and the help of another Thradian named Beneda. From Thrad, Swain and Cogon were supposed to take a transport to Klonoid, where they would join a rebel cell.
However, Swain's former mentor traced the stolen shuttle's signal and ended up locating the defectors' hiding place, in a spaceport of Thrad's eastern continent. Swain and Cogon tried to flee, but Kallus pursued them in the streets. The defectors managed to corner the Security agent for a moment, and Swain verbally confronted her former mentor. Her triumph, however was only short-lived, as a duo of stormtroopers barged in the alley and killed Cogon. Although Kallus himself had lost hold of his signature Bo-Rifle, the young woman had not expected him to keep a backup weapon under his fleximetal cuirass, and she fell to a surprise stun blow. Swain, still unconscious, was brought aboard the shuttle she had stolen, where Kallus' men started torturing her for information, and would lead to her execution at the hands of Lord Vader himself, who choked her through the force via hologram.
