"He's a master codebreaker, an ace pilot, a poet with a blaster."
―Maz Kanata to Finn, Rose and Poe[src]

The Master Codebreaker was a human male codebreaker who was sought out by Rose Tico and Finn on a mission to stop the First Order's flagship, the Supremacy, from tracking the Resistance through hyperspace.[1]

Master Codebreaker was somewhat known by Maz Kanata, who sent the pair after him while they were desperate for someone of his talents. When they finally spotted him in the Canto Casino in Canto Bight, they attempted to run up to him, but were apprehended by the Canto Bight Police Department for illegally parking their starship on the beach. Master Codebreaker's companion, "Lovey", asked him about the disturbance, and he responded that he thought it was of little consequence.[1]

Personality and traitsEdit

Master Codebreaker was only known by his title, and kept his original identity a secret. However, he once posted all of his personal information to a public node, encrypted by biohexacrypt, and anybody who uncovered the information was welcome to take his mantle. However, nobody was known to have retrieved the information.[2]

At the Canto Casino, Master Codebreaker was only allowed to play dice games, and he was forbidden from electronic entertainment.[2]

Matching his levels of secrecy, the Codebreaker's companion kept her real name hidden from him, and he only referred to her as "Lovey".[2]

He regularly wore a brooch in the shape of a red flower pinned on his lapel, which Maz told Finn and Rose about as an identifying mark. On the day he was sought out by the pair, he was sporting a thin black mustache.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Master Codebreaker is a character created for the 2017 film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi. He was portrayed by Justin Theroux. Prior to Theroux's casting, the Master Codebreaker was originally conceived as a giant insect warlord which was supposed to be an animatronic according to creature and droid effects supervisor Neal Scanlan, but the idea was scrapped when Theroux was cast one day before filming.[3]

In earlier versions of the film's script, Finn and Rose Tico were originally meant to actually meet the Master Codebreaker inside a cabaret room of the Canto Casino, only to be taken in a quest for a stashed knapsack and arrested by the Canto Bight Police Department at the casino's rooftop following their attempt to breaking into the Master Codebreaker's room to be discovered by a droid. This idea was cut, however.[3]
