Simon Greyshade[source?] was a wealthy male senator who represented the Vorzyd sector in the Senate of the Galactic Republic shortly before the onslaught of the Clone Wars,[source?] in 22 BBY. He owned the XJ-6, a custom luxury airspeeder hot rod constructed from a Narglatch AirTech kit that Greyshade further customized with twin turbojet engines originally designed to function in groups of fifty aboard the gigantic bank-courier repulsor trucks of Aargau, which was commandeered by the Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker to pursue Zam Wesell, a Clawdite bounty hunter who had attempted and failed to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo. Greyshade was unable to press charges for his speeder's "theft," as it was later retrieved and returned to its parkslot.
