Achk Med-Beq was a male Human present in the Outlander Club on Coruscant when Jedi Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi were searching for the bounty hunter Zam Wesell. He along with his partner Dannl Faytonni were posing as Republic Security Force officers attempting to con patrons out of their credits.[2]

Med-Beq and Faytonni later conned the aspiring criminal Magaloof.[3] He once rescued Llollulion from the CoCo District Constabulary on Coruscant.[4]

Later Med-Beq and Faytonni fled from Senate Commandos under Captain Faro Argyus. They claimed Padmé Amidala's ship from C-3PO and Jar Jar Binks. Unfortunately the ship was programmed to bring them back to the Senate.[5]


Achk Med-Beq was the criminal partner of Dannl Faytonni. Med-Beq was probably the more ambitious and inventive of the two. Faytonni almost ended the partnership after an unsuccessful case concerning a Spice mine. Med-Beq and Faytonni fled to Coruscant.

Eventually, the duo was imprisoned, but in 22 BBY they escaped from the CoCo Penitentiary via a laundry speeder, accompanied by another escapee, Llollulion. A detection message was sent, but the two crooks were once again active in the CoCo District. Faytonni had a sabacc party where the two could get uniforms of the Republic Judicial Forces. The two remained hidden for a time in the Outlander Club where female customers were lured away. When Zam Wesell was caught in the club, Med-Beq was mingling with the Twi'leks Lunae Minx and Ayy Vida. Med-Beq and Faytonni also became interested in the Swokes Swokes artist Oakie Dokes and asked Dokes to sponsor them in future projects. Faytonni was, as usual, very charming, but Dokes sensed danger. An advantage for both parties meant for a Swokes Swokes. Indeed, as much as "wretches." How this deal ended was not known.

Med-Beq also collaborated with the naive thief Magaloof. Together they snapped some business just Med-Beq lured Magaloof into a trap by convincing him to rob a jewelry store in CoCo Town. Magaloof the shop robbed empty but was restrained by Dannl Faytonni, who, disguised as Republic Officer, gave a sermon to the Leffingite. Magaloof hurried Med-Beq to inform him about the failed burglary, but Med-Beq had disappeared.

With the spoils in their possession, Faytonni and Med-Beq went forward. In 22 BBY the two were still fleeing the Senate Commandos and still wore uniforms of the Judicial Forces. Captain Dannl Faytonni and Lieutenant Med-Beq stole the J-type star skiff of Padmé Amidala in order to escape but failed because the ship was programmed to go to the Galactic Senate upon takeoff.

Behind the scenes[]

Achk Med-Beq was portrayed by and named after Ahmed Best, the actor who played Jar Jar Binks.

This method of basing a fictional entity name on a real-life person name is known as a tuckerization.

He was rendered into an Action Figure during 2003.
