Way back before the novel was originally to be released (in 2007) GL said that Plagueis was a Muun. Does that still apply? I ask considering Stewjon is the canon homeworld for Obi-Wan Kenobi. Have a dark side filled day! --You may call me Mr. Darth (talk) 13:05, June 4, 2014 (UTC)

Muun as Lucas' idea: still canon? Edit

Does Chee's and Hidalgo's Q&A at Celebration IV qualify as a valid source to determine Plagueis' species as a Muun? They did say that Plagueis being a Muun was Lucas' idea. On the other hand, the first names of Motti don't seem to have been kept... But Stewjon was. --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 20:49, July 4, 2014 (UTC)

  • Stewjon was kept because it was in the Encyclopedia (and now the new Databank). I'd leave Muun off of the canon Plagueis page until such time as it appears in the new Databank or in a canon story. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:51, July 4, 2014 (UTC)

Master of Sidious?Edit

Has it been confirmed anywhere in the new canon that Plagueis is indeed Sidious' master? Any sort of documentary or something on RotS that confirms it? If there is none, should it be removed? Cevan (talk) 23:30, July 6, 2014 (UTC)

  • Reference number two, which you can find in the body of the article next to the information in question, confirms that Plagueis is still Sidious's master. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research (Comlink) 00:13, July 7, 2014 (UTC)

Hego Damask IIEdit

Why was this page moved to Hego Damask II/Canon? Cevan (talk) 02:36, April 11, 2015 (UTC)


In Ultimate Star Wars, in the locations section, in a quote, Plagueis is identified as Hego Damask. However, it's a quote from the novel Darth Plagueis (novel). Strange, but probably enough to add his birth name? Nivlacanator(talk) 20:39, May 20, 2015 (UTC)

  • So... this is going to be one of those annoying word parsing things. However, I don't think he's ever outright identified as Hego Damask. The only reference to Hego Damask that I know of is the quote on the Naboo page. Is there ever anywhere in the book where it's specifically stated that Darth Plagueis is Hego Damask? - Brandon Rhea(talk) 20:40, May 20, 2015 (UTC)
    • Yeah... And no, not that I have seen. Nivlacanator(talk) 20:44, May 20, 2015 (UTC)
      • What are you talking about? in that short storie that was added in the phantom menace book, when Maul attack on naboo he keep hearing about demask and realize maybe his master may also have a master. hell i heard other character refer to him as palpatine. i guess that while Hego demask may not be his name it is his alias to the public at large. (Ghidorafour (talk) 01:04, June 1, 2015 (UTC))
        • That's a Legends story. This is the Canon page. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 01:09, June 1, 2015 (UTC)

"Darth Plagueis" Novel ?Edit

Do you think one day "Darth Plagueis" will return canon ? It's a excellent book which deserve to be canon. (talk) 02:36, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

  • Doubtful, since it was written as a Legends novel. Information from it could become re-canonized, though. Until then, what we have on this page is all we know for sure about the character in canon. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 14:34, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

Continuity Edit

This website is a joke. I spend most of my time pulling out OFFICIAL Star Wars annuals to keep the info up to date, only to be told information in official annuals isn't important unless it has the "Canon" header and am sternly told to only add information from that continuity next time. Then I actually find one with the correct canon header only to be told I shouldn't have and the information in those books is unverified? What does every edit need to come with a signed letter of acknowledgement from J. J. Abrams now?

You tell me that Lucasfilm says otherwise but since when? I've looked and all I can find is apparent confirmation that he is not Snoke and he died during episode one (which even that is dubious in of itself) and I've never, ever some across them so much as hint at Plagueis' backstory - in fact if anything they've been actively trying to avoid it. So where's this source you have where they decide to go out of their way to decanonise this random book? --Dakirel (talk) 21:41, October 6, 2016 (UTC)

That is a serious question by the way! --Dakirel (talk) 21:45, October 6, 2016 (UTC)
The book is canon. The reference to Hego Damask was a mistake in that book, per Lucasfilm Story Group executive Pablo Hidalgo: - Brandon Rhea(talk) 21:51, October 6, 2016 (UTC)
So Twitter is canon? Because how I see it is a tweet from someone in the business is not the same as a official product released under the Star Wars licence. --Dakirel (talk) 22:05, October 6, 2016 (UTC)
Pablo Hidalgo is a creative executive on the Story Group, which means he's one of the people directly in charge of developing and managing the story of Star Wars. If he says a book made a mistake, it means a book made a mistake. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:17, October 6, 2016 (UTC)

Time of death?Edit

Is this Pablo tweet: enough to change the time of death from Prior to the Battle of Kashyyyk to Prior to the Blockade of Naboo?--ZapikCZ (talk) 19:34, June 13, 2017 (UTC)

  • He says "I'd say" so probably not. There isn't much harm in keeping it as Prior to the Battle of Kashyyyk until we get more details from a canon story --Lewisr (talk) 19:43, June 13, 2017 (UTC)
