- ―Jan Dez when asked about the whereabouts of the pickpocket Bannamu
Jan Dez was a male Twi'lek criminal on Coruscant, and acted as an associate to the Quarren Lauli Wahlo during the Clone Wars. At one point, the two were approached by Jedi Master Tera Sinube and Padawan Ahsoka Tano, who was looking for her lightsaber, which had been stolen from her. Once she revealed herself to be a Jedi, the nervous counterpart revealed to her that the lightsaber had been pilfered by the Patrolian criminal Bannamu, and Dez indicated that he could be found at the Spider Arms Hostel.
