Aidan Vurt was a male individual who served as the political advisor of the Twi'lek Leontyne Saresh, a Senator in the Galactic Senate of the Galactic Republic during the Republic's Great Galactic War with the reconstituted Sith Empire. A politically cunning man, Vurt crafted a remarkably popular campaign for Saresh that emphasized her history as a self-liberated slave, and the two were later married. However, Vurt was killed[2] in 3642 BBY[1] during the Sith's invasion of the planet Taris, where his wife was leading the Republic initiative to rebuild the ruined world.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Aidan Vurt was first mentioned in the 2012 reference guide Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia's entry for Leontyne Saresh, though his species was not identified.[2]

Notes and references[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 SWTOR mini.png STAR WARS: The Old Republic - Question ! :) - Page 3 on The Old Republic's official website (backup link) places Star Wars: The Old Republic about ten to twelve years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which is dated to 3653 BBY by Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2 takes place ten years after the treaty, one week after the mission to Nar Shaddaa, and around the time of the SpecForce Incident. Since the mission and the incident are respectively part of Act I of the Jedi Knight and Republic Trooper's storylines, and the Trooper's Act I occurs concurrent to Act I of the Smuggler storyline, the general events of Act I for all classes can be assumed to occur in 3643 BBY. The Prologue for each class immediately precedes Act I, and Act III for all classes begins with the start of the Galactic War, which Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia places around 3640 BBY. Assuming that in-universe chronology of the Star Wars: The Old Republic events roughly aligns with the release of story content in real-life as with SWTOR mini.png Forums: Dear Story Team, What Year Are We Currently In? on The Old Republic's official website (backup link), the Act III Epilogue must take place near the end of 3640 BBY since it was the chronologically latest story of the The Old Republic base game, which was released toward the end of 2011. Therefore, assuming that The Old Republic takes place over the course of three years per the former of the two aforementioned swtor.com posts, Act I takes place near the end of 3643 BBY.
