"Get on your speeder and go visit Durchine, Holshef, Apapaba, Kinlo, and Marhas. Tell them Rosey will come by and move them to new hiding places tonight, in case more informants are wagging their rotten little tongues."
―Yahenna Laxo to Merei Spanjaf[src]

Apapaba was an individual wanted for crimes against the Galactic Empire. Yahenna Laxo of the Gray Syndicate, a minor organization with pretensions of being a serious player in crime on the[1] Outer Rim[2] planet of Lothal, sheltered several people, including Apapaba, from the Empire's attentions. Laxo was willing to hide such individuals only so long as they had enough credits to pay him.[1]

As part of the crackdown on suspicious activities on Lothal[1] in 4 BBY,[3] the Galactic Empire hit one of Laxo's warehouses and two of his gambling clubs. Laxo then asked Merei Spanjaf, a teenage girl unwillingly involved with the activities of his Syndicate, to visit Apapaba along with Durchine, Holshef, Kinlo and Marhas. She was to inform them that Rosey, another member of his Syndicate, would be moving them to new hiding places that night and that they needed to be packed and ready.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Apapaba is mentioned in passing in Servants of the Empire: Imperial Justice, the third title of the Servants of the Empire junior novel quartet by Jason Fry, published in 2015.[1]

  3. The events of Servants of the Empire: Imperial Justice occur around the same time as those depicted in the Star Wars Rebels episode "Vision of Hope," as Zare Leonis's meeting with Ezra Bridger, in which Leonis reveals to Bridger that he is transferring to the Arkanis Academy, is depicted in both stories. "Vision of Hope" takes place after the Star Wars Rebels episode "Empire Day," which is set in 4 BBY, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, but before Star Wars Rebels: The Siege of Lothal, given that Bridger and the Spectres are still operating freely on Lothal during the events of Imperial Justice and "Vision of Hope" and have not yet encountered Phoenix Cell, which changes in The Siege of Lothal. Given that Galactic Atlas dates The Siege of Lothal to 4 BBY as well, the events of Imperial Justice must also take place in that year.
