- "Avon grieves at the tragic accident that has befallen our neighbor ... We heard that there might not be enough room on the evacuation ships for everyone here."
"That is a rumor," Obi-Wan said. "It is false."
"So you say. In case of some failure, Avon wishes to send an entire fleet to Radnor to airlift more sick off-planet. We took the liberty of sending the fleet already."
- ―Dol Heep extends Avoni "aid" to Radnor and the Jedi.
Dol Heep was an ambassador to the planet Radnor from Avon who tried to convince the Radnoran brother-and-sister scientific team Galen and Curi to sell to the Avoni the new bio-weapon they were developing. When the two refused (though Galen originally wanted to sell it), Heep was furious.
Knowing that it was Curi who was opposed to selling the weapon, Heep pretended to be stranded on Radnor due to the bioplague that resulted when Galen's bio-weapons facility experienced a toxic leak (the toxins were released by Heep himself). When Heep met the Jedi who were tasked with evacuating the remaining survivors, Heep offered to send a fleet of Avoni ships to transport them to Coruscant. However the Avoni ships that arrived were instead prepared for a full-scale takeover of Radnor, as revenge for not selling Avon the toxin.
After the Jedi managed to avert the invasion, Dol Heep pretended that it was never the Avoni's plan to take over Radnor. After restoring the planetary communications (even though they also denied jamming them), Heep and the Avoni left Radnor. Due to the expected debating that would go on in the Senate if the Radnorans even attempted to file a report against the Avoni, Heep went free without paying for his planet's crimes.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "Our planet has made a great and generous offer, and still you ignore us. Now we hear that the evacuation ships have been delayed. And you still don't come to us?" Dol Heep's skin was mottled with anger. "We deserve this treatment? If you do not allow our fleet to land, the Senate shall hear about it!"
- ―Dol Heep lambasts the Jedi for their ill-considered rejection of the Avoni gesture to "aid" Radnor.
Vain, greedy, selfish, duplicitous, and ill-tempered, Dol Heep―a tall being with a large, domed head and prominent eyes―accustomed himself to wearing, even over a bio-iso (biological-isolation) suit that he wore, an ornate septsilk cloak, which gave him a slightly ridiculous air. His mode of speech was declamatory, loud, and bombastic, even in hushed settings.
