Ferdoin was a Human male who served in the Republic Military during the Cold War with the Sith Empire. He deserted after five years on Taris, and escaped thanks to a traveling hero.


A Republic trooper during the Cold War, Ferdoin was stationed on Taris from 3647 BBY until 3641 BBY, when he decided to desert.[1] Stationed on Taris at Waypoint Station Draay, Ferdoin was one of many troopers who had been serving on the planet for the last five years, despite it only being a one-year assignment. Five years of attacks by rakghouls, pirates, and scavengers had broken Ferdoin and his friends' spirits, until they finally gave up.

Around the year 3641 BBY,[1] Ferdoin was part of the monthly supply convoy sent from Waypoint Station Draay to Waypoint Station Cresh in the west. He, Gilroh, Geozel, and the rest of the convoy decided to desert on one of their runs, leaving Morne without supplies as they hid in the wilderness.

Draay's quartermaster Kahrin Wek grew concerned over the lack of response from Morne, so she asked a Republic-allied individual, who had helped her expose her superior Commander Gardit's corruption, to investigate. The hero found the convoy, and after learning of the group's story, let them escape. The hero would inform Ferdoin's superior Commander Yajak that they had found the convoy's bodies in the wilds, ensuring their safe escape.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Ferdoin was created for Star Wars: The Old Republic, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game released by BioWare on December 20, 2011.
