Moralo Eval was a male Phindian and criminal mastermind who invented the Box. During the Clone Wars, Eval plotted to kidnap Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. Together with Cad Bane and Obi-Wan Kenobi (who was disguised as Rako Hardeen), Eval fled across the galaxy from Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano.
Moralo Eval developed his loathsome reputation at an early age. He heartlessly killed his mother; when apprehended by authorities, he told them he committed this crime because he was "bored." Eval spent the rest of his early life as a criminal and fugitive; this gave him a sharp survival instinct, as well as technical and engineering skills. During his time on the run, Eval became deranged and developed many odd mannerisms, such as referring to himself in the third person.
The plot to kidnap PalpatineEdit
During the Clone Wars, a war between the Galactic Republic and the breakaway Confederacy of Independent Systems, Eval plotted to kidnap the Supreme Chancellor of the Republic, Sheev Palpatine, despite his imprisonment in the Republic Judiciary Central Detention Center. Eval befriended Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi (who had disguised himself as the bounty hunter Rako Hardeen to verify and then stop the criminal's plan) and convinced the Jedi to help him escape with Cad Bane, a fellow inmate.
After a successful escape, Moralo Eval and his accomplices stole a Republic cruiser and crash-landed it on Nal Hutta to escape pursuit. On the planet's surface, the trio purchased a new ship and departed for Serenno to meet with Count Dooku for the next phase of the kidnapping plot.
On Serenno, Eval had Bane and Kenobi participate along with several other bounty hunters in a series of tests within his invention, the Box. Bane proved himself to be the leader Dooku desired, thus Eval was relieved of command and relegated to the role of "getaway driver." Ultimately, Moralo Eval's plans were thwarted and he was taken back into custody.
