As the leader of Offworld Corporation, Xanatos claimed that he desired peace between Offworld and rival company Arcona Mineral Harvest Corporation, but secretly he planned to eliminate Arcona and take their ionite mines on Bandomeer for himself. He tricked Obi-Wan Kenobi into thinking he would not make it as Jinn's Padawan. He then sent him off to a mining platform through a trap door. With the help of Kenobi, Jinn thwarted his plans by disabling the charges. The planet was safe.
