"Save your mercy for someone else!"

Jobin was a Human male who was the son of Mon Mothma, and a corporal serving the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire. He was killed by Darth Vader during the Battle of Hoth.

BiographyEdit

"And when I die, I'll know my life will have had meaning."
―Jobin[src]

Jobin was a corporal in the Alliance Military, and commanded the 4th Squad on Hoth during the battle there. When Imperial Troops invaded with a surface attack, his platoon set out to assist Ion Control when one of his men noticed Imperial troops approaching from the South Ridge. His squad was attacked by an AT-ST, but Jobin was able to destroy it with a satchel charge and marched into the Ion Control center, where he killed a stormtrooper with an icicle. It was Jobin who activated Echo Base's v-150 anti-orbital ion cannon, which disabled an Imperial I-class Star Destroyer in orbit. It was also Jobin who sent the transmission "Imperial troops have entered the base," prompting Princess Leia to order the final evacuation of Hoth. He was killed in 3 ABY during the Battle of Hoth at the hands of Darth Vader while attempting to escape Echo Base. When his squad tried to escape on a transport, Lord Vader and his stormtroopers came upon them. While he was running towards the transport, Jobin was shot and gave another Rebel trooper a holo-recording for his mother. Though he shot at Darth Vader his efforts were to no avail. Vader levitated him off the ground and began to choke him. He attempted to interrogate the dying man, but Jobin refused to surrender any information, even spitting on him as an act of defiance. Vader then broke his neck with the Force, killing him.

His mother, Mon Mothma, received Jobin's message shortly before the Battle of Endor.

Behind the scenesEdit

"Imperial troops have entered the base! Imperial troops have ent—"
―Jobin[src]

The second edition of the West End Games sourcebook Galaxy Guide 3: The Empire Strikes Back includes Jobin's quote warning those remaining in Echo Base that invading Imperial troops have entered the facility. Published nearly a decade before the creation of Jobin's character, the quote is attributed only to a "Rebel Officer."[1]

During the Operation Hoth Defensive Event in the 2013 card game app Star Wars: Force Collection, his quote was given to Toryn Farr to introduce Raid Battles.
