"I'm a cab driver, pal. I hear stories like that all the time."
―Igno replies to Fives's claims of conspiracy[2]

Jay Igno was a male Nimbanel who worked as an air taxi driver on the planet Coruscant during the Clone Wars.


"Lousy, cheap clones!"
"It's your credit, pal. You're paying for this."
"Ah, your mother's a droid!"
―Jay Igno and a drunk clone trooper after Fives did not pay for his air taxi ride[2]

At some point prior to the Clone Wars, Jay Igno was born and eventually moved to Coruscant, where he became a taxi driver. Throughout his time working, he saw and heard many strange things.[1]

In 19 BBY, he drove the rogue clone trooper Fives to the bar 79's after the trooper discovered a conspiracy surrounding Sheev Palpatine. On the way, Igno tried to socialize with Fives, claiming that he didn't know clones could have fun, with clone responding by stating that there was a lot he didn't know about them. Igno continued, saying how he liked a good mystery, but Fives quickly asked him if he heard the mystery about the clone troopers being engineered to kill their Jedi leaders without knowing it. Igno simply laughed and said he heard stories like that all the time.[2]

When they arrived, Fives exited the air taxi, prompting Igno to ask if he was going to pay. He told Igno to "bill it to the Republic", as some drunk clones outside of the bar jeered him on. Igno then insulted the clones and drove away, as the drunk ones threw bottles at his taxi.[2]
