- "I should think that you Jedi would have more respect for the difference between knowledge and wisdom."
- ―Dexter Jettster
Dexter "Dex" Jettster was a male Besalisk with a colorful background who lived on the planet Coruscant and was the owner of Dex's Diner. Serving mostly hard workers from the area, the diner offered home-style cooked meals and freshly brewed ardees ("Jawa juice"). Jettster worked as the cook and employed two waitresses, Hermione Bagwa and her WA-7 waitress droid partner, FLO.
It was shortly before the Clone Wars that Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi came to Dex's Diner to see if his old friend, Jettster, could identify a poisoned dart. Though few even knew of the planet Kamino, Jettster did from his days as a prospector and was able to identify the dart as originating from that planet. Furthermore, he knew of the native inhabitants, the Kaminoans, who were cloners of some repute and kept to themselves but were welcoming to those who brought credits. Jettster gently chided his old friend Kenobi who as a Jedi should have put more faith in another person's wisdom than the knowledge of the Jedi Archives.
Before the Clone Wars, Dex's Diner was known to have the best nerfburgers ever, and people from all over the galaxy traveled to Coruscant to eat at Dex's. Unfortunately, not all of Dexter's clientele was trustworthy, as he was. Thiefs sometimes stole nearby, so Dexter enlisted the help of his Jedi friend, Obi-Wan Kenobi. Obi-Wan and Dexter set up a sting in the diner itself to stop the robberies. When the thief, Tri Tellon, pickpocketed a trinket from Obi-Wan, Dexter and Obi-Wan tracked Tri to her hideout that she shared with another rogue, Magreda. Dexter now owed a favor to Obi-Wan, one that would be paid.
It was right before the Clone Wars began that Dexter was approached by Obi-Wan, who wanted to know if Dexter could identify a poison dart. Dexter was able to identify the dart, which was from the planet Kamino. Dexter and Obi-Wan exchanged friendly banter, and then Obi-Wan left the diner. Dexter had paid back the favor he owed to Obi-Wan.
