Jax Pavan was a common Corellian name. During the early days of the Galactic Empire, it was the name of 582,797,754 Human males and an unknown number of females on Coruscant. The commonness of the name vexed Haninum Tyk Rhinann, who was given the task of hunting down a Jedi Knight–cum–bounty hunter named Jax Pavan. This particular Jax Pavan was the son of Lorn Pavan and lived in the planet's Yaam Sector, which itself was home to 8,673 other men who bore this name.
