Jaspara was a male Ryn with white hair and gray skin who was the Baron Administrator of the space station known as the Wheel during the Republic Era. He was also the owner of the Galactic Globetrotters, a shockball team who played in the Ashton Stadium on the station's third level.
As Jaspara had an uneasy relationship with the Galactic Republic, the Jedi Order promised to avoid the Wheel in order to keep the peace. When the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker visited the Wheel in search of the Anomid criminal Grynask Sanberge some time between 29 BBY and 22 BBY, they had to disguise themselves as tourists to avoid attracting Jaspara's attention.
Behind the scenes
- "Jedi, on the Wheel…how disappointing."
- ―Jaspara, in a non-canonical ending
Jaspara first appeared in Choose Your Destiny: An Obi-Wan & Anakin Adventure, a 2019 canon book in the Star Wars: Choose Your Destiny series, written by Cavan Scott. In one of the book's non-canon endings, Kenobi and Skywalker are caught and taken to Jaspara, who decides to hold them for ransom.

Notes and references
- Choose Your Destiny: An Obi-Wan & Anakin Adventure
- Obi-Wan and Anakin 2 states that Anakin Skywalker is twelve years old during the mission to Carnelion IV. Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide states that Skywalker was born forty-one years before the Rogue One mission to steal the Death Star plans, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas to 0 BBY. Therefore, Skywalker was born in 41 BBY, and the mission to Carnelion IV occurred in 29 BBY. As Skywalker is visibly older in Choose Your Destiny: An Obi-Wan & Anakin Adventure than he was in Obi-Wan and Anakin 5, Choose Your Destiny: An Obi-Wan & Anakin Adventure must be set after the events of Star Wars: Obi-Wan and Anakin. Because Choose Your Destiny: An Obi-Wan & Anakin Adventure is set before the outbreak of the Clone Wars, which Galactic Atlas dates to 22 BBY, its events must occur between 29 BBY and 22 BBY.
