Achk Med-Beq was a male human. He was present in the Outlander Club on Coruscant, conversing with Ayy Vida and a purple Twi'lek, when Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker showed up in pursuit of the changeling assassin Zam Wesell. Med-Beq was a known associate of Dannl Faytonni, who also attended the club that night. By the time Kenobi and Skywalker were assisting Wesell at the back of the establishment, Med-Beq and Faytonni were patrolling the second floor of the Outlander conjuring.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Achk was portrayed by Ahmed Best, who also played Jar Jar Binks throughout the prequel trilogy. He shares the cameo with George Lucas's daughter Katie Lucas (whose purple Twi'lek is only named in Legends). In an interview on The Star Wars Show, Best stated that Beq was related to the Jedi Master Kelleran Beq, who Best is portraying in Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge, though no canonical source has yet confirmed the relation.
