Hurst Romodi was a human male who served as a general of the Galactic Empire.


Hurst Romodi fought in the Clone Wars, a three-year pan-galactic conflict that pitted the Galactic Republic against the Confederacy of Independent Systems. When Sheev Palpatine replaced the Republic by a Galactic Empire of his own device at the end of the war, Romodi was a battle-scarred veteran, and he became one of the first generals in the new Imperial Army. Alongside Wilhuff Tarkin, he contributed to the pacification of the unruly Western Reaches.[3] In the aftermath of the Battle of Ogoth Tiir, he took reconstruction initiatives, which later became a subject of discussion in Colonel Julyan's Strategy and Tactics class at the Arkanis Academy.[2] After his retirement, Romodi was personally invited to return to the military to help in the readying of the Death Star project.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Hurst Romodi's first appearance in canon was in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, in which he is seen attending a meeting onboard the Death Star.[1] According to the fan website Aveleyman, he was portrayed by Ian Selby.[4] In the Star Wars Legends continuity, Romodi first appeared in the film's novel, released several months prior to the film, in which he was given the name "Romodi;"[5] he was later given the first name "Hurst" in the 2012 reference book The Essential Guide to Warfare, written by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart.[6] Romodi was not identified in canon until the 2015 novel Servants of the Empire: The Secret Academy, also written by Fry.[2] No connection between the Imperial in A New Hope and Romodi in The Secret Academy was made until Fry confirmed on his Twitter account that they were indeed the same character.[7] Hurst Romodi was portrayed by Andy de la Tour in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.[8]

On the social network Twitter, several French fans have humorously pointed out the resemblance between de la Tour's Romodi and the Mayor of Bordeaux Alain Juppé, prompting several French-speaking online media outlets to relay the information.[9][10][11]
