|Chronological and political information|
Prince Beju was the prince of the planet Gala. Initially, he sided with the Syndicat, who offered to help Beju take over Gala in exchange for power. Beju planned on thwarting his planet's elections by cutting off the bacta supply and reinstate it when the people started suffering, which would make the Prince look like a hero and make the other two candidates for the elections look inferior. However, his plan backfired when Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn exposed the plot. Beju was then tested by the Mark of the Crown, which would determine if he was the rightful heir. The results turned out negative, to Beju's dismay, showing that Elan was in fact the true heir. However, he honorably dropped out of the election, and backed Wila Prammi instead.
Obi-Wan Kenobi disguised himself as the Prince due to their apparent similar looks–both being adolescent boys of similar height. Obi-Wan acted like the arrogant Prince to help the ploy, which made thwarting Prince Beju and the Syndicat's nefarious plan much easier.
