Biography[edit | edit source]
- "Did you get the shipment of slave collar chips?"
- ―Denal-zon, to a Republic individual
Denal-zon, a Zabrak male, served on his homeworld of Coruscant as a police officer with the Coruscant Security Force. By the time of the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and the resurgent Sith Empire, he had achieved the rank of captain in the Coruscant Security Force. In 3643 BBY, Denal-zon was assigned to investigate the theft of several valuable computer chips belonging to Senator Doli-bur Barc. After beginning his investigation, he discovered that the chips were designed to power Rylothian slave collars. He also discovered that the chips had been stolen by members of the Migrant Merchants' Guild criminal gang. With the CSF at war with the Guild in an attempt to push them out of Coruscant's Old Galactic Market sector, Denal-zon was unable to retrieve the collars and the investigation subsequently stalled. However, since slave collars and the chips that powered them were illegal in the Republic according to Republic Law 44-12, Denal-zon felt little sympathy for the Senator's plight.
After Denal-zon's police investigation stalled, Heerimus, Senator Barc's representative, asked a Republic individual to try to solve the case and relocate the chips. The individual spoke with Denal-zon and was informed of the details of the case. They then managed to fight their way into the Old Galactic Market area controlled by the Guild. There, the individual recovered the chips and later turned them over to Denal-zon, who proceeded to destroy them.
Personality and traits[edit | edit source]
- "Senator Barc'll be disappointed, but the law is the law… even for Senators."
- ―Denal-zon, after destroying the computer chips
Denal-zon was a Zabrak with green eyes and orange and brown skin. He firmly believed in the importance of regulations and the rule of law, which he would often quote. His belief in the law also added to his strong sense of right and wrong, which he refused to compromise on.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Mission: "The Stenator's Stolen Goods" on Coruscant
- 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 , 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. places
