"We're looking for spice, you gorm-worms, not some vape-chaser's memory box!"
―Devlin criticises Shrove's confiscation of the strongbox[src]

Hedge Devlin was a lieutenant in the Galactic Empire who served as Chief Imperial Inspector in the Chorlian sector of the Outer Rim Territories, where the lieutenant focused on searching for spice. After Agent Paramiah Shrove of the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order confiscated a spacer's strongbox, it was scanned by a DD-13 medical assistant droid at Vyndal Station and the box's Imperial Boarding Inspection and Customs intake form was completed by Devlin.[1]

The strongbox contained document scraps, miscellaneous accreditations, and the book known as the Smuggler's Guide, in which Shrove had identified objectionable content that was given a Class 4 literature rating. The scan for the box came back negative for foreign contaminants and as Devlin was only interested in finding spice, the lieutenant marked on the box's form that it should be returned to its owner and left a note comparing Shrove to a gorm-worm, criticizing the agent for confiscating it.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Hedge Devlin was first mentioned on a supplemental item included in the deluxe edition of the 2018 reference book Star Wars: Smuggler's Guide, which was written by Daniel Wallace.[1]
