Subject 478-98 (also known as Blackstripe) was a Wookiee with a black stripe that bisected the center of its face. Blackstripe was enslaved by the Galactic Empire. In 5 ABY, Blackstripe was hunted by a modified assassin probe remotely controlled by Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck, who enjoyed hunting and killing Wookiees for amusement. Tolruck used the assassin probe to fire two toxo-darts into Blackstripe's chest. When the poison failed to slow down the Wookiee who continue climbing a wroshyr tree, Tolruck used his control visor to remotely launch the assassin probe into Blackstripe and explode. The explosion destroyed both the droid and killed Blackstripe. Dissatisfied with the hunt, he crushed his control visor in disgust.

Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 Aftermath: Life Debt
- ↑ 2.0 2.1 Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the Battle of Endor during the year 4 ABY. Shattered Empire, Part IV, which shows Shara Bey and Kes Dameron settling on Yavin 4, takes place three months after the Battle of Endor, and Galactic Atlas places Bey and Dameron's move to Yavin 4 in the year 5 ABY.
The novel Aftermath says that months have passed since the Battle of Endor. Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath; therefore, the events of the former take place at least four months after the Battle of Endor. Since three months after the Battle of Endor is part of 5 ABY, as shown with Bey and Dameron's settling on Yavin 4, events of Life Debt must take place in 5 ABY at the earliest. On the other hand, the Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, leading to the conclusion that Life Debt is set in 5 ABY.
