At some point after the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, TK-577 deserted the Stormtrooper Corps and became one of the Bounty Hunters' Guild's top ten most wanted fugitives. A bounty of 25,000 credits was placed on his head.[1]

The former trooper was ultimately tracked down and killed by a bounty hunter dedicated to hunting down the top ten most wanted fugitives hiding throughout the galaxy. As a result, the bounty hunter received the 25,000 credit bounty.[1]

Personality and traitsEdit

During his Imperial service, TK-577 believed in what he was fighting for as much as any recruit of the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[2] Despite that, he still deserted the Empire following the Battle of Yavin, and became a highly wanted fugitive. As of his time as a fugitive, TK-577 was completely bald with brown eyebrows. His eyes were also brown in color, and he had fair skin.[1]


During TK-577's time in the Stormtrooper Corps, he was armed with a BlasTech E-11 blaster rifle.[3] After deserting the Empire, however, TK-577 made use of a DL-44 XT blaster pistol and a vibroknuckler for close range combat.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

TK-577 was created by Decipher, Inc.'s Jedi Knights Trading Card Game in 2001.[3][2] He later appeared as a non-player character in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts.[1] He was added to the game as part of Game Update 3's Dangerous Fugitives addition in April 29, 2008.[4] The game was shut down on December 15, 2011.[5]

Players of the bounty hunter profession who were level 86 or higher could use a bounty check ability to discover ten fugitives hiding throughout the galaxy. One of these fugitives was TK-577. Bounty hunter players who defeated all ten fugitives in the Dangerous Fugitives collection were awarded with a Master Crafted EE-3 Carbine Schematic and a Master Crafted DC-15 Rifle Schematic. Players who completed the collection could speak to a Trandoshan bounty hunter named Rovessh in the Bestine cantina to reset the collection, allowing players to repeatedly hunt down and kill TK-577 and the other nine fugitives. Although the player could choose not to hunt down and kill TK-577, this article assumes 100% game completion.[1]
