The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on official information from the Star Wars Legends continuity, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

A male Human with a black beard was a Rebel commando in the Endor strike team in 4 ABY.

Behind the scenesEdit

EndorStrikeTeam

The cut Jabba's Palace extra was officially established a Rebel commando in several sources

The black-bearded, camo-wearing character was originally set to appear in the 1983 movie Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, in which he was portrayed by an unidentified extra. However, the shots in which he was featured were ultimately left on the cutting room's floor. Subsequently reference photographs of the character in costume were mislabeled as "Rebel commando", probably due to his wearing a camouflage pattern. Such pictures made their way into some Star Wars reference books,[2] thus establishing his affiliation with the Rebel Alliance. The individual notably appeared in the Rebellion Era Sourcebook, in the 17th,[3] 30th[4] and 136th issues of The Official Star Wars Fact File,[5] and in Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary.[1]

In early 2013, the Star Wars author Pablo Hidalgo grew suspicious of the character's identification with a Rebel commando due to his long robes and resolutely non-standard helmet and boots. While watching the documentary "Classic Creatures: Return of the Jedi" found on the blu-ray edition of Star Wars Episode VI, Hidalgo spotted the character on the set of Jabba's throne room. On March 5, 2013, Hidalgo posted an article on StarWars.com's official blog recounting how he rediscovered the character's original identity. In that weblog entry, Hidalgo also postulated that the character may still be seen in Return of the Jedi, lurking in the background next in the shot where Bib Fortuna tries to stop Luke Skywalker from entering Jabba's throne room.[2]
