I was just wondering what the general consensus on Gregar Typho's death was. He was added to the game Star Wars Galaxies in 2005, which takes place after the Battle of Yavin. But the book called Coruscant Nights II: Street of Shadows states he died in 19 BBY, making it impossible for him to have lived after 0 BBY. Now I know SWG canon has always been sketchy, but he appeared in the game years before the book was sold. Yet his article is written to give precedence to the book. Not that I disagree with this, as I think the book is probably more "realistic" from a storytelling perspective. I just wonder how precedence is determined. Lastly, did he definitively die in the book? Or was it left somewhat open-ended that he may have survived? StarsiderSWG (talk) 14:57, June 16, 2013 (UTC)
In cases of conflicts where the two sources involved fall into the same category of canon (C-canon in this case), Wookieepedia generally accepts the most recently released source as canon. That would be why Typho's article is written as the assumption that CNII is correct. —MJ—Comlink 19:34, June 16, 2013 (UTC)
Okay, makes sense. But did the book explicitly say that he died? Or was it only implied? StarsiderSWG (talk) 01:22, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
I do not have the book, so I cannot answer that question. Perhaps someone else can? —MJ—Training Room 05:56, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
Seems Typho's death was a resolution to a side plot of the story. No I have not read it, but based on spoilers I've seen, he tries to kill Vader by attempting to shoot him unawares. However Vader avoids being shot and force pushes Typho , breaking several bones. After a verbal exchange about Vader killing Amidala and Anakin Skywalker, Vader essentially executes Typho. Not sure how, but from numerous reviews and spoilers I've read, he is definitely dead at that point.
The following is copied from a preview. Unfortunately the crucial blow or blows aren't described on the pages provided;
The world was unraveling fast for Typho. The pain was going, finally, pouring out of him as fast as his blood. But he died with a smile on his face, for, although he did not understand the how or the why of it, he knew that dying with Padme's name on his lips was a finer and deeper revenge upon Darth Vader than he could have possibly ever hoped for through confrontation. It was as if he could feel the man's heart and know that, somehow, he had ripped it open with her name alone.
He also knew that living was a far worse fate for Vader than death.
He was content.
Now he could go and find Padme...
That being said there are retcons that have affected that series. Even Piell is still alive, Barriss Offee was killed on Felucia before the end of the clone wars and Darth Maul is still dead on Naboo as of 32 BBY. Three that I know of.
Interestingly the "Lieutenant Colonel Typho" seen in Star Wars Galaxies is not referred to as "Gregar", is still youthful and both his eyes are intact, though he is wearing "Anniversary Goggles", accessory eyewear that only cover the one eye. Ghostly Menace (talk) 05:09, June 25, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for posting that. Indeed, he clearly dies in the book. Now, in SWG, the fact that he wore goggles was probably more a limitation in game mechanics (they didn't have any eye patch clothing). So the developers probably did intend for him to be the Gregor Typho. But with that being said, seeing as how Gregor is dead, would it be appropriate to create a separate article for the SWG Typho saying he's a relative of some kind? Or would that be too much speculation? StarsiderSWG (talk) 23:05, June 25, 2013 (UTC)
Too much speculation. I'd just call the SWG appearance non-canon and leave it at that. —MJ—Training Room 03:24, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
