"I killed Obi-Wan Kenobi!"
―Rako Hardeen[src]

Rako Hardeen, also known as the "Marksman of Concord Dawn", was a human male bounty hunter and marksman from the planet Concord Dawn.

BiographyEdit

"You're blaming me for a murder I didn't even do."
―Rako Hardeen[src]

During the Clone Wars, Hardeen found himself a pawn in a complex plot to foil a kidnapping attempt on Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine organized by Moralo Eval and Count Dooku. He was hired by an anonymous client, actually members of the Jedi Council, to murder Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi by shooting at him from the top of a building on Coruscant. After shooting Kenobi in the chest as he had agreed, Hardeen was pursued by Anakin Skywalker. The bounty hunter managed to escape using smoke bombs and a speeder bike.[2]

While celebrating his high-profile kill at Trueping's cantina, he was summoned into the back room to meet his employer and receive payment. There, he was met by Jedi Masters Mace Windu and Obi-Wan Kenobi–his supposed victim, now physically altered to look like him. Hardeen was apprehended by the two Jedi, and his identity assumed by Kenobi in order to plant himself in a Republic prison. Hardeen's reputation for having killed a Jedi was essential to the plan, as Kenobi used it to gain the trust of other prisoners and attract the attention of Moralo Eval[2], from whom Kenobi was to acquire intel that would help the Jedi prevent the kidnapping attempt.[3]
