"Inquisitors? I can deal with--"
"Yes--and another. Tall, armored, masked, black. All over black. Ackbar didn't get his name, but he said he was--"
"I know his name. Skywalker."
―Ferren Barr and King Lee-Char[3]

The Battle of Dac City was a conflict that occurred[5] one year after the rise of the Galactic Empire,[3] when Darth Vader undertook a mission to the planet Mon Cala to determine if a Jedi was hiding there and advising the Mon Calamari king, Lee-Char, in negotiations with the Empire. Moff Wilhuff Tarkin aboard the Sovereign had previously sent down ambassador Telvar to make an trade deal with Lee-Char but the king continued to deny the man and he was forced to take leave for the time being.[3]

At that moment, Vader arrived, along with three Inquisitors[3] and a squad of elite Purge Troopers.[3] They were confronted by the king's chief of security Gial Ackbar who denied the possibility of there being a threat on Mon Cala. However the Lambda-class T-4a shuttle carrying Telvar exploded, killing all on board. This prompted Tarkin to deploy his forces onto Mon Cala. Lee-Char informed the Jedi of this and the Jedi said he could handle the Inquisitors and that he knew the identify of the black armored individual Ackbar had failed to get the name of.[3]
