Under the EmpireEdit

Jad Bean, nicknamed "Scorch,"[2] was a human male who lived during the Imperial Era.[1] By 4 ABY,[3] Bean[2] served as a Death Star Trooper of the Imperial Navy on the second Death Star and was situated in a control room. During the Battle of Endor against the Rebel Alliance,[1] Bean[2] was in the room alongside Death Star commander Moff Tiaan Jerjerrod and Lieutenant Endicott.[1]

After Moff Jerjerrod was ordered by Emperor Palpatine to fire the superlaser and the gunners were ready to fire, Jerjerrod signaled to[1] Bean[2] to fire.[1] Jad Bean[2] reacted to Jerjerrod's command and the battle station fired on the Alliance Fleet, destroying the MC80 Star Cruiser Liberty. Eventually, the Rebel Alliance succeeded in destroying the second Death Star, and the battle resulted in the death of Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader, and many Imperials.[1]
