(Starjammers I#1) - T’cahr, a loyalist of D’Ken and Minister of Peace to Lilandra, received news from Milyann tec Hilyiani that D'rehn's ship had been destroyed by the Starjammers, but chose to destroy the message rather than convey it to Lilandra. Meanwhile, the Shi'ar received word that the Uncreated were destroying Shi'ar worlds that believed in a deity.

(Starjammers I#2) - Lilandra declared martial law on Shi'ar planets and announced war to the gathered Shi’ar (including Cerise), putting T’cahr in charge of its deployment. T'cahr was thrilled, feeling he had a chance to pursue his own agenda.

(Starjammers I#3) - T’cahr and Lilandra paid a state visit to the military just before receiving word of the Starjammers’ location. T’cahr implored Lilandra to issue a death order against them. As the Shi’ar forces moved in, the Starjammers created a massive explosion that destroyed the ships, then escaped.

(Starjammers I#4) - T’cahr argued with Lilandra about her unwillingness to authorize to killing of the Starjammers, stating that D’Ken would have done so, but Lilandra side-stepped, stating she was focused on the war. The Shi’ar forces, containing many Steel Bird ships, began moving for a final confrontation with the Uncreated above the planet Standing Still, a Clench world. Aboard the Royal Yacht, Lilandra, T’cahr, and the Imperial Guard, the Shi’ar were authorized to use lethal force against the Uncreated in spite of the fact that the war would kill the millions on the planet below, a fact Lilandra struggled with. The Starjammers intervened, however, and managed to convince the Uncreated to destroy themselves by causing them to believe that their “god” still existed. Lilandra immediately had T’cahr arrested when he accused Lilandra of treason for not having the Starjammers killed.

(Starjammers#4 - BTS) - In a dark place in the high boughs of Chandilar's royal Aerie, D'ken loyalists gathered. Though T'cahr was lost to them, the values he stood for remained, and they resolved that someone must keep the strong claw of the Imperium buried in the throat of the galaxy. If Majestrix Lilandra will not be that person, then they would see what must be done.
