"There is a little known group of mercenaries on Endor known as the Jantsk Mercenaries. You will approach their leader on my behalf. He is expecting you, but those in his employ must not know that the Empire is hiring them. Leave at once and deliver to Vurrha Jantsk my instructions."
―Emperor Palpatine, to an unnamed Imperial spacer[src]

The Jantsk Mercenaries was a mercenary group based on the planet Endor. It was named after its leader, Vurrha Jantsk. During the Galactic Civil War, Jantsk and his mercenaries went to the Mid Rim planet of Naboo in order to attack Queen Kylantha's chambers. Unbeknownst to his men, Jantsk and his group had been hired by Emperor Palpatine himself for this mission. When the job was done, their leader was assassinated by an unidentified Imperial spacer on the Emperor's orders.
