"Why do you want to do this, Lieutenant? What love do you have for the Empire?"
"They pay me. Good credits for faithful service. More, if I can give them items of interest."
―Prefect Pol Haus and Lieutenant Kalibar Droosh[src]

Kalibar Droosh was a male Bothan who lived on the planet Coruscant and served as a police officer with the Coruscant Police. By 18 BBY, Droosh had achieved the rank of lieutenant and was assigned under Prefect Pol Haus in the Zi-Kree Sector. However, Droosh secretly spied on Haus for the Imperial Security Bureau. During a confrontation with Haus, Droosh was killed by Whiplash freedom fighter Tuden Sal.


"I’ve been watching you for a while, Prefect Haus. Since I transferred into your prefecture. I was taken with how unusual your friends are. I expect you’ll generate quite a bit of interest among my superiors. Maybe enough to get me assigned permanently to the ISB."
―Lieutenant Droosh[src]

Kalibar Droosh was a male Bothan living on the planet Coruscant where he served as a police officer with the Coruscant Security Force. Droosh eventually attained the rank of lieutenant and was transferred to the the Zi-Kree Sector station. While there, Droosh began spying for the Imperial Security Bureau (ISB) on his colleagues including his commanding officer, Prefect Pol Haus, in the hopes of finding anti-Imperial activities.[1]

In 18 BBY, Droosh accompanied Prefect Haus and a Special Weapons Team under Sergeant Amry to a supposed raid of a criminal hideout in a maglev train. However, unknown to Droosh and the other officers, the "raid" was simply a cover for Haus to prevent Whiplash freedom fighter Tuden Sal from carrying out his plans. When the maglev train failed to appear, Haus ordered Droosh and his officers to search the tunnel. They found one train car but when the officers approached the train exploded, wounding several officers and throwing Droosh to the ground. Haus, seeing his plan had failed left Droosh in charge of the scene to go find Sal. Droosh however followed Haus and arrived at the maglev train that served as the Whiplash headquarters in time to overhear Haus and Sal arguing over the future of plans for Whiplash. Droosh confronted them, revealing his affiliation with the ISB and his intentions to kill them before reporting them to his ISB superiors. Haus, angered but resigned, moved to surrender. However, Sal shot Droosh with his blaster at the same time Droosh opened fire resulting in each others death.[1]

Personality and traitsEdit

"A very revealing conversation, sir. One I’m sure the Imperial Security Bureau would be most interested in hearing."
"And you’re going to relay it to them?"
"Of course. I’m sure there will be great rewards for the man who captures... or kills... the remaining members of Whiplash."
―Lieutenant Droosh and Prefect Haus[src]

Though he appeared to a proficient officer, having achieved the rank of lieutenant, Droosh had little true loyalty to either the Coruscant Police, his fellow officers, or even the Empire. Instead Droosh's loyalty to his superiors at the ISB was motivated purely by the rewards, both politically and in credits, that he saw he could attain.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Kalibar Droosh first appeared in the The Last Jedi, a novel by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff that was released on February 26, 2013.
