"This fleet, what is it, a gift? What is he asking for in return? Does he—arrgh!"
―Domaric Quinn's caustic comments crosses Kylo Ren's temper, who slams the general into the conference chamber's ceiling[src]

Domaric Quinn was a human male who served the Galactic Empire as a junior officer before rising to become a general and key ground forces commander in the First Order. He was selected to serve as part of Supreme Leader Kylo Ren's Supreme Council, but found it difficult to keep his doubts about Ren's reliance on mysticism in check.

In 35 ABY, he questioned Ren on the First Order's allegiance with the Sith Eternal cult and its Sith fleet on Exegol during a meeting of the council on board the Resurgent-class Star Destroyer Steadfast. Ren cut Quinn off by using the Force to choke the general and slam him into the ceiling, ultimately killing him.

"Forgive me, sir, but these allies on Exegol, they sound like a cult. Conjurers and soothsayers."
"They've conjured legions of Star Destroyers. The Sith fleet will increase our resources ten thousand fold."
―Domaric Quinn and Enric Pryde discuss the Sith fleet[src]

Domaric Quinn served on the First Order's Supreme Council.

Born during the Imperial Era[1] some point prior to 5 BBY, Domaric Quinn was a human male who served the Galactic Empire as a junior officer of the Imperial Officer Corps during its reign,[4] serving within its Imperial Army.[1] After the fall of the Empire, Quinn was amongst those Imperials who joined the First Order,[4] first continuing to serve as a junior officer, then to the military rank of commander, and subsequently rose to general,[1] becoming one of its key ground force commanders of the Order.[4]

General Quinn and his forces benefited greatly from the First Order's ambitious military build-up, at first modest but then more visible as the Order gained more confidence. Sonn-Blas Corporation and the contributions of trade allies to the First Order, facilities in the Inner Rim and the Outer Rim Territories produced weapons and munitions for the First Order. As a result, General Quinn and his forces were among the best equipped in the galaxy as the First Order moved to conquer more territory under the ploy of spreading civilization in the Unknown Regions and the bordering systems of the New Republic.[1] Quinn served under Supreme Leader Snoke until his death at the Battle of Crait in 34 ABY, after which he came to serve under Snoke's successor, Kylo Ren.[4]

When Ren formed a Supreme Council to help plan the future of the First Order, Quinn was given a seat,[4] and in 35 ABY[2] attended one of the council's meetings on board[5] the Resurgent-class Star Destroyer Steadfast.[4] Ren presented the Council with the head of the Resistance sympathizer Boolio and announced that there was a traitor within their ranks; however, due to the recent discovery of the Galactic Emperor Darth Sidious's survival on the planet Exegol and the promise of a Sith fleet to bolster the forces of the First Order, the Supreme Leader was unconcerned.[5]

Going too far[]

"Prepare to crush any worlds that defy us. My knights and I are going hunting for the scavenger."
―Kylo Ren gives orders as he kills Quinn[src]

General Domaric Quinn was Force choked by the Supreme Leader for questioning him.

Quinn then questioned the First Order's allegiance with the Sith Eternal forces on Exegol, complaining that they were a cult. Allegiant General Enric Pryde reminded Quinn of the extremely high increase in resources the alliance with the Sith would provide, but Quinn persisted and asked Ren what it was that the Emperor wanted in return for the fleet.[5]

In truth, Palpatine did desire something in return, the death of the Jedi Padawan Rey, but Ren intended to turn her to the dark side and betray Sidious. Mid-sentence, Quinn was cut off when Ren used the Force to begin choking him, before proceeding to slam the general into the ceiling of the conference room.[5] Something in Quinn's body fractured loudly upon impact, and Ren slowly choked the general to death,[3] as he ordered the other officers present to focus on crushing all remaining resistance to the First Order while he hunted down Rey.[5]

Personality and traits[]

Quinn was a technologist at heart and used logic-based solutions verified by complex computer simulations in his battle strategies.[4] When he served in the Galactic Empire, Quinn considered the Jedi to be a myth, and attributed the stories of the Force as hearsay, propaganda, and exaggeration, similar to other officers who had never witnessed the powers of Darth Vader or Emperor Palpatine. Quinn believed in technological superiority above all else.[1]

He disagreed with Snoke's reliance on mysticism, but kept his opinions in check. Under Kylo Ren, the general was frustrated by the fact that the Supreme Leader was more than ten years his junior and struggled to keep his temper under control, questioning Ren openly in front of the Supreme Council about his alliance with the Sith Eternal,[4] who he considered little more than conjurers and soothsayers. During the exchange, Quinn's voice dripped with contempt.[3] Quinn, as a human male, had light skin, blue eyes and black hair.[5]


Domaric Quinn wore a black First Order officer's uniform with a black belt, boots and gloves. The left sleeve of his uniform bore the double-banded rank insignia of a general.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

Domaric Quinn was portrayed by Simon Paisley Day in the 2019 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker.[5] His surname was revealed in the film's credits, while his forename was first revealed in the accompanying reference book Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by Pablo Hidalgo.[4]
