- "The previous commander of Coruscant Security also made demands for more soldiers, Moff Kadir. You shall make do with what we provide. Unless you'd rather share your predecessor's fate."
- ―Darth Vader
Moff Kadir's father, a Human male, served as the Commander of the Coruscant Security Force before the Battle of Yavin. Around 1 BBY he was executed for voicing his opinions too much by requesting more soldiers to secure the Imperial capital planet Coruscant. He was replaced as the commander of Coruscant Security by his son Kadir.
Behind the scenes
Kadir's father was first mentioned in Empire 1 published on September 4, 2002. It was written by Scott Allie and illustrated by Ryan Benjamin, Curtis P. Arnold, Michelle Madsen, Dave Stewart, and Brian Horton. Though originally only identified as Moff Kadir's predecessor in Betrayal, the The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia further stated that he was Moff Kadir's father.
