The content of this Star Wars Legends article was cut.

This article covers a subject that was cut from the final version of a Star Wars Legends source. The subject appeared in no other source and was therefore considered non-canon within the Legends continuity.

The First Bodyguard was the title of the Jedi leader of the Imperial bodyguard. Before the Jedi Rebellion and the replacement of the Jedi by the Knights of the Sith, the First Bodyguard was Kane Starkiller.

Behind the scenesEdit

In the first draft, Kane is renamed Akira Valor. He remains the same character, however, in all other respects.

The notion of the Jedi being Imperial bodyguards may have inspired the Imperial Knights in the Star Wars: Legacy series.
