- "I've had a good life, I think. But it's been…lonely…since Janelle was taken from me. I lost her, I lost my ship. I just wanted to see her once more. Hear her say my name again. I loved her so very much."
- ―Aron Harcourt, moments before his death at the hands of Boba Fett.
When the Anya Karu was destroyed by Rebel saboteurs, the Galactic Empire used Harcourt as a scapegoat, wishing to keep any and all Rebel victories from the public eye. He was demoted to a desk job on Coruscant, where he spent the rest of his days together with his wife Janelle. In 0 ABY, three years after the death of his wife, he hired Boba Fett to retrieve a holorecording of his wife from the wreckage of the Anya Karu. Fett completed the mission, only to find that Harcourt couldn't pay him the second half of the price agreed. Harcourt promised to never allow the fact that he hadn't fully paid Fett get out if the bounty hunter let him live, but Fett refused. Stepping behind the former captain, Fett listened as Harcourt uttered his last words, which were about his wife and how he had just wanted to see her one more time.
He then shot Harcourt down, finally reuniting him with his wife Janelle.
