- "We are receiving a message from the Chancellor's office, sir."
Colton was a captain in service of House of Organa on the planet Alderaan. He served as the pilot of the Tantive III, the vessel belonging to Senator Bail Organa, Alderaan's Viceroy and the husband of Queen Breha Organa. During the Clone Wars, Colton piloted the Tantive III when it rescued Jedi Masters Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi from the execution of Order 66. He piloted the vessel to Coruscant, where the passengers had their own missions: Kenobi and Yoda infiltrated the Jedi Temple, which was heavily guarded by clone troopers after the Jedi within it were killed, in order to use a beacon to warn surviving Jedi away from Coruscant; while Organa was called for a special session of the Galactic Senate. In that session, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine proclaimed that the Galactic Republic would be transformed into the Galactic Empire.

Behind the scenesEdit
Colton was portrayed by actor Jeremy Bulloch in a cameo appearance in the 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Bulloch had previously portrayed bounty hunter Boba Fett in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. In Star Wars Legends, the character's first name was established as "Jeremoch", an obvious portmanteau of Bulloch's first name.
