- "I'm a cab driver, pal. I hear stories like that all the time."
- ―Igno replies to Fives's claims of conspiracy
Jay Igno was a male Nimbanel who worked as a air taxi driver on the planet Coruscant during the Clone Wars. At one stage during the war he gave a ride to CT-5555, an Advanced Recon Commando known as Fives on the run from the Galactic Republic. The clone asked to be taken to 79's, a clone bar which the driver knew. En route to the bar the commando told Igno there was a conspiracy against the Republic and the Jedi Order; although the driver was used to such tales from his passengers. Upon reaching 79's, Fives left the taxi and didn't pay, much to Igno's annoyance.
- "Hey, you payin' for this ride or what?"
- ―Igno calls to Fives as he leaves
The male Nimbanel Jay Igno live on the planet Coruscant during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. On Coruscant, which was the capital of the Republic, Igno worked as a air taxi driver, transporting beings around the ecumenopolis that covered the entire planet. During the war he transported two Twi'lek women to their desired destination in his air taxi, and after they paid him accepted a new passenger. When the passenger, an Advanced Recon Commando designated CT-5555 and known by the nickname Fives, asked to be taken to the bar known as 79's, Igno recognized the bar as one frequented by clone troopers serving in the Grand Army of the Republic. Realizing his passenger was a clone, Igno tried to make conversation with Fives and the clone ended up telling him about a conspiracy involving organic inhibitor chips implanted in the brain of clone troopers. Upon reaching 79's, Igno parked outside and let Fives out of the taxi. When the clone began to walk away, the driver asked for payment, but Fives told him charge the trip to the Republic. A group of inebriated clones approached and laughed at Fives comment, arguing with Igno and then throwing bottles at his craft as he flew away.

While driving his taxi, the Nimbanel wore a jacket and a cap and listened to music.
