- "What is Lord Vader's interest in this Jedi?
We thought it might be Skywalker, but he won't talk. I'm sure Vader will find the truth."
- ―A spacer and an unidentified Imperial commander
The Jedi was one of the few of his kind to survive Order 66, but was imprisoned around the Empire Day festivities following 0 BBY. He was held at Outpost GRF-7493 on Yavin 4 by an Imperial commander, Lord Vader and a number of other Imperials. He was kept alive, so that he could be interrogated for important information concerning the Rebellion.
The Imperial commander had one of his soldiers interrogate the Jedi. The Imperial knew that the Jedi would not give in to direct threats, so he took another approach; he convinced the Jedi that he was in fact sent by Leia to rescue him, and to tell him to abort the mission. The Imperial gained the Jedi's trust, so he divulged the information that the Empire was looking for.
Personality and traitsEdit
The Jedi prisoner was a stubborn individual, completely loyal to the Rebellion. However, he was too trusting, which proved to be his downfall during his interrogation.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Jedi prisoner, who lacks an official name, was a non-player character (NPC) in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies. During the Empire Day live event from June 29 to July 11 in 2005, he could be found at an outpost on Yavin 4. He was part of a quest titled "Happy Empire Day," where Imperials had to interrogate him for information. Only by tricking the Jedi into believing that the Imperial was in fact a Rebel operative, would the Jedi be willing to divulge information. If the Imperial chose to be forceful or rude to the Jedi, the latter would cease talking, and the player could not complete the quest with 100% completion.
