Typho saw off Padmé and her Jedi protector Anakin Skywalker as they left for Naboo (Typho stayed on Coruscant with handmaiden Dormé).

Captain Typho appears in the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series, where Jedi Master Yoda uses a Force-assisted "persuasion" to get Typho to agree to a detour on Ilum (he initially objected on the grounds that it put Padme in danger). Although this was controversial in that it seemingly portrays Typho as "weak-minded", it would seem as though Yoda is powerful enough to use mind tricks on strong willed individuals. (Considering that Master Yoda can do many things what other Jedi masters cannot do, he might not be so "weak-minded" as a security captain at all.)
