"Save your mercy for someone else!"
―Jobin, to Darth Vader[src]

Jobin was a Human male who was the son of Mon Mothma, and a corporal serving the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire. He was killed by Darth Vader during the Battle of Hoth.


"And when I die, I'll know my life will have had meaning."

Jobin was a corporal in the Alliance Military, and commanded the 4th Squad on Hoth in 3 ABY during the Battle of Hoth. When Imperial troops invaded with a surface attack, his platoon set out to assist Ion Control when one of his men noticed Imperial troops approaching from the South Ridge. His squad was attacked by an AT-ST, but Jobin was able to destroy it with a satchel charge and marched into the Ion Control center, where he killed a stormtrooper with an icicle. It was Jobin who activated Echo Base's v-150 anti-orbital ion cannon, which disabled an Imperial I-class Star Destroyer in orbit.

He was killed in the battle at the hands of Darth Vader while attempting to escape Echo Base. When his squad tried to escape on a transport, Lord Vader and his stormtroopers came upon them. While he was running towards the transport, Jobin was shot and gave another Rebel trooper a holo-recording for his mother. Though he shot at Darth Vader, his efforts were to no avail. Vader levitated him off the ground and began to choke him. Vader attempted to interrogate the dying man, but Jobin refused to surrender any information, even spitting on him as an act of defiance. Vader then broke his neck with the Force, killing him.

His mother, Mon Mothma, received Jobin's message shortly before the Battle of Endor.
