"He's gone… I can… I can finally…"
―Garault's final words[src]

Garault was a male Human Jedi Master who served the Jedi Order during the Cold War and Galactic War against the Sith Empire. A tall, broad-shouldered man, Garault bore a scar on his chin that he received while fighting the Empire. He was the second in command of Master Surro, who led a small group of Jedi that adopted a sixth line to the Jedi Code—"There is no contemplation, there is only duty." The team served as the Galactic Republic's scouts on the planet Balmorra after Grand Marshal Cheketta's defeat at the Balmorran Arms Factory,[3] and Garault nearly succumbed to the dark side of the Force when one of their number, Danak, was killed by Imperials after being exposed by a Twi'lek named Ivo.[4] Years later, the group—now officially known as the Sixth Line and in the employ of the Republic Strategic Information Service—was deployed on the planet Ziost by Theron Shan, but Garault and the others fell under the control of the former Sith Emperor Vitiate. Garault was grievously wounded in battle, and moments before his death, Garault was released from Vitiate's control.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Garault was first introduced in the short story The Sixth Line, released shortly before Game Update 3.2: Rise of the Emperor was added to the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic; Garault appears in the update as the first member of the Sixth Line encountered by players.


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. Using information from the novel The Old Republic: Annihilation and Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire, the events of Game Updates 2.0 through 3.3 for Star Wars: The Old Republic can be placed in the time period between 3640 BBY and 3637 BBY. According to The Old Republic lead designer Charles Boyd (screenshot), the game's events can be assumed to occur in a timeline matching that of their real-time release. Therefore, the events of Game Update 3.2: Rise of the Emperor can be placed in approximately 3637 BBY, just prior to Chapter I of Fallen Empire.
