Hey there,

I'm not really big on editing here, I prefer to leave that to the pros and not meddle. But there is one article kind of nags me. I fixed it, but then my fix was undone. The article page for the character "Rukh" opens with the following quote:

"For the treachery of the Empire against the Noghri people. We were betrayed. We have been avenged." ―Rukh, after stabbing Grand Admiral Thrawn

I know that "avenged" is the proper grammatical term, but in the book Rukh says "revenged" (The Last Command, Pg. 402 Hard Cover Edition).

I don't know if Timothy Zahn made a typo or Rukh never learned the finer points of Basic, but that's how it is. I don't know if, when compiling articles, a Wookieepedia editor would take it upon himself to correct such errors or leave it as it is (Although I'm not sure if the error is a typo, and thus noncanon, or the in-universe character's error, and thus still incorrect but still canon). I just wanted to say that so the Admins know I'm not trying to vandalize.

Thanks --Ernesto1035 18:39, May 10, 2012 (UTC)

  • Actually, they're both right. In the novel The Last Command Rukh says "revenged" but in the comic adaptation he says "avenged." The article used the comic version but sourced it to the novel. Since it makes more sense the comic way I've changed the source to the comic and left it as "avenged." Well spotted. Green Tentacle (Talk) 19:26, May 10, 2012 (UTC)
