Doctor Rhu was the Q'Maere Research Facility's psycho-pharmacologist, responsible for assessing and administering the patient's medicinal drug needs. Mentally ill himself, Rhu had trouble distinguishing reality from fantasy, and attended to his duties sloppily. When the FarStar crew and the prison population staged a jailbreak in 8 ABY, he considered it to be an entertaining hallucination for several hours before withdrawing into himself.
