- "Take another look, Haako. Be sure."
"Yeah, yeah, boss! It's him! I seen him!"
- ―Jor Torlin and Haako, referring to Cade Skywalker
Haako was a Chadra-Fan male who worked as an informant and scout during the Second Imperial Civil War. A long-time inhabitant of the Wheel, he kept no strict allegiance to any faction and worked for everyone who offered him credits at a given time. In 137 ABY, he provided information about the former Jedi Cade Skywalker to Jor Torlin, an agent for Sith Intelligence and Assassination, confirming that Skywalker was aboard the space station. After this, Haako proceeded to use his network of informants in an effort to determine Skywalker's location, per Torlin's instructions.
- "I kept my eye on him like you said after I commed you about him! He was here, but he got in his ship a few hours back and took off! Couldn't find out where!"
"All right, Haako. Keep digging. See if anyone else was with him, knew him, might know where he was headed."
- ―Haako and Jor Torlin, regarding Cade Skywalker
Haako, a Chadra-Fan male, was born at some point before the end of the Sith–Imperial War. After the war's final battle in 130 ABY, Haako set up residence in the Wheel, a large space station located in the Besh Gorgon system in the Mid Rim. During this time, he made his living as an informant and scout for various employers, always willing to sell his information to anyone who could pay him in credits. Haako's services were used on occasion by the Sith agent Jor Torlin, a former Sith adept working for the intelligence division of Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire.
Seven years later, during the Second Imperial Civil War, Haako contacted Torlin and informed him that the bounty hunter and former Jedi Cade Skywalker, for whom the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Krayt was searching, was aboard the Wheel. The Chadra-Fan was instructed by Torlin to keep track of Skywalker's whereabouts. However, Skywalker left the station and Haako was unable to ascertain the bounty hunter's destination. Haako met with Torlin, who gave the Chadra-Fan a flimsiplast of Skywalker's portrait to confirm whether Haako had seen the same individual. Haako confirmed this and then left Torlin after being instructed by the agent to keep searching for Skywalker's location and to find out if he had been seen with any companions. Haako used his structure of informers in an attempt to find Skywalker.
