Jaako was a male who was a captain within the Tonvarr pirates, a group of pirates that learned of the planet Ilum's location while it was being visited by the Gree starship Gray Secant. Raiding parties under Jaako's leadership looted powerful Gree technology from the planet, arming themselves with Gree weapons and armor until Jaako was killed during the Galactic War.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Jaako was first added to the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic in Game Update 1.7: Return of the Gree, as the final enemy in one of the Daily missions during the Relics of the Gree World Event—"Unexpected Variables" and "External Variables" for Republic and Imperial players respectively..[2]


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. According to Star Wars: The Old Republic's lead designer Charles Boyd (screenshot), the events depicted in post-launch Game Updates can be assumed to occur in a timeline matching that of their real-time release. Additionally, the 2012 novel The Old Republic: Annihilation occurs between Game Updates 1.7 and 2.0, and is dated to 3640 BBY. Therefore, the events of Game Update 1.7: Return of the Gree, which was released in 2012 prior to Annihilation, can be placed in 3640 BBY.
