- "I fear we could become appetizers at the drop of a hat."
- ―Ars Dangor to Orson Krennic, during their time on Geonosis
Ars Dangor was a male human bureaucrat who, during the Clone Wars accompanied Janus Greejatus, Sly Moore, Sate Pestage and Lieutenant Commander Orson Krennic to Geonosis to oversee Poggle the Lesser's homecoming. As Poggle gave a speech to his fellow Geonosians, Dangor sat alongside the other Republic emissaries in the Petranaki Arena. During the speech, Dangor expressed worries to Krennic that he felt they could become appetizers at the drop of a hat.
After the rise of the Galactic Empire, Dangor served in the Imperial Ruling Council. As such, he was an adviser to Emperor Sheev Palpatine. He wore long, braided mustachios and had broad, furrowy eyebrows. Despite his mostly glum countenance, Dangor's unusual facial hair gave him a bit of élan. Like all the other members of the Imperial Ruling Council, he donned colorful robes and floppy hats.
Behind the scenes
Ars Dangor was introduced to the Star Wars canon in James Luceno's 2014 novel Tarkin. The character was originally created for the Star Wars Legends short story "Imperial Spin" of the 1989 sourcebook Imperial Sourcebook.
In 2003, a production photo from five of the Advisors seen in the 1983 film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi was included in an article published on StarWars.com, accompanied by text that read "Among the members of Palpatine's Inner Circle are: Sate Pestage, Janus Greejatus, Sim Aloo, Ars Dangor, and Kren Blista-Vanee". Despite this, there is no canonical basis that proves that Dangor was one of the five advisors.
