Janus Greejatus was a human male official who served on the Ruling Council of the Galactic Empire. Prior to the Age of the Empire, he represented the office of Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine at the homecoming of Poggle the Lesser on the planet Geonosis. Following the end of the Clone Wars and the birth of the New Order, Greejatus continued to serve Palpatine, now the Emperor of the galaxy.
During the Clone Wars, a pan-galactic civil war between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems, Janus Greejatus served as an emissary of Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. During the homecoming of Poggle the Lesser, Greejatus attended the ceremony—alongside several other dignitaries, including Ars Dangor, Sly Moore, Sate Pestage and Lieutenant Commander Orson Krennic—which took place in the Petranaki arena, on the planet Geonosis.
Greejatus would go on to serve Palpatine as one of his closest advisers after the latter's rise as Emperor of the Galactic Empire. Approximately five years into the Age of the Empire, he was serving in the ranks of the Imperial Ruling Council, a governing body which consisted of the Emperor's advisers who oversaw the daily management of the Empire.
In the year 4 ABY, Greejatus accompanied the Emperor aboard the second Death Star. It was later assumed that Greejatus died when the Death Star exploded during the Battle of Endor, but his ultimate fate was unknown.
Personality and traitsEdit
Janus Greejatus was a gaunt human male of short stature, with brown hair and light skin. He had a puffy face with dark, sunken eyes. Like the other members of the Imperial Ruling Council, he wore baggy robes of garish color and floppy hats, which were not unlike the garb of the Naboo noblemen.
