Patel Odfath was a Rebel operative.

Odfath was holding some key datafiles when he was captured by bounty hunter Lu'daal-ud around 1 ABY or 2 ABY. Those datafiles were coded, but they included information that could be a life-or-death question for almost one thousand of Rebel operatives in different regions of the galaxy. Rebel Commander Zgorth'sth wanted to organize a mission to recover the datafiles before Lu'daal-ud discovered the information and tried to sell it to the Galactic Empire.
