- ―Anandra Milon informs her brother that they failed to meet with the smuggler
A smuggler was on the planet Coruscant shortly after the destruction of the planet Alderaan by the Galactic Empire in 0 BBY. The smuggler was known by a friend of Anandra Milon's Alderaanian family, who promised Milon and her younger brother, Santigo Milon, that the smuggler could get them off Coruscant in a transport so that they could escape from the Empire, which had begun arresting Alderaanians following the loss of their homeworld. However, the smuggler left Coruscant without the two Alderaanians, as the pair were two days late in arriving on Level 2142, where they had agreed to meet the smuggler.
Behind the scenesEdit
The smuggler was first mentioned in "One Thousand Levels Down", a short story written by Alexander Freed and published in Star Wars Insider 151 in 2014. The story did not establish the smuggler's gender or species. In the story, Milon asks about a Centax 3 delivery while on Level 2142. It is not made clear if this delivery is related to the smuggler.
