- "A shame. A good decoy is hard to find."
- ―The Emperor, upon finding the corpse of his double
During the Galactic Civil War, Darth Sidious employed a male individual as a body double for his own protection. Some time after the Battle of Yavin, Sidious sent the body double into the Arrth-Eno Prison Complex on Coruscant, where a group of Rebel spies intended to assassinate the Emperor. The body double was killed by Eneb Ray but Sidious himself survived, and his true plan was revealed: the elimination of the Rebel spies on Coruscant, the death of former senators, and a propaganda victory against the Rebellion.
