- ―Jeremoch Colton and Bail Organa
Jeremoch Colton was a Human male who served as the pilot of the Sundered Heart during the Clone Wars, and had a long record of service in the Royal House of Alderaan. He wore the same uniform as the rest of the Sundered Heart crew, and he had blond hair and blue eyes. He is not to be confused with Captain Raymus Antilles, who had overall command of Sundered Heart and considered Colton to be his mentor.
Colton had a long career as a pilot of the Royal House of Alderaan. At the end of the Clone Wars, he served under Captain Raymus Antilles on board the Sundered Heart during its return to Coruscant after Bail Organa rescued Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi during the execution of Order 66.
Colton was among the crew aboard the Sundered Heart when Bail Organa, Yoda, and Obi-Wan Kenobi went on the search for surviving Jedi. He answered the call of Mas Amedda when Bail Organa's presence in the Senate was asked by Emperor Palpatine. Having learned the tricks of the trade, Colton planned to retire from active service and decided to teach at the University of Alderaan until it was destroyed years later during the Galactic Civil War. Presumably Colton was among the victims of Alderaan's destruction.
Behind the scenes
The name Colton Antilles is given for Raymus Antilles in some sources, leading some fans to believe that the Captain Antilles in A New Hope is a separate character named Colton Antilles, possibly named after the Captain Colton in Revenge of the Sith. However, Leland Chee has confirmed that both Captains Antilles are meant to be the same person.
