"I can tell. He killed them while they slept. Haze, because he had the artifact. Jak, because he accused Paal of killing Haze."
―One of Sylas Wilkes's men[src]

Haze was a male criminal in the employ of Sylas Wilkes who was one of fifteen men tasked with guarding a shipment of blasters and a Sith artifact for their boss on Tatooine. However, the artifact drove the group mad, and they fled into the Dune Sea with the blasters and the artifacts. As the artifact's influence over them grew, they were picked off one by one by either the Sand People or themselves—one of the group believed that Paal killed Haze in his sleep because he had the artifact, and though Paal claimed it was the Sand People, Jak accused Paal of killing Haze and was killed that night.
