"Karabast! Karabast? What does that even mean?"
―Agent Alexsandr Kallus to Garazeb Orrelios[src]

Karabast was a Lasat exclamation commonly used during moments of crisis.

Qui-Gon Jinn thought this exclamation during the Coronation of Queen Fanry as his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi was seemingly trapped following Fanry's declaration of rebellion.[1]

Garazeb Orrelios, a member of the Ghost crew, used it quite frequently.[2] Ezra Bridger adopted the phrase after spending time with Orrelios.[3] Sabine Wren, another of Orrelios' fellow rebels, also used the phrase when they beheld an Imperial Star Destroyer emerging from hyperspace (prompting Orrelios to echo the sentiment)[4] and so too did the ISB agent Alexsandr Kallus, though whilst expressing confusion regarding what it meant.[5]

The rebel commando Pao used the exclamation during the Battle of Scarif upon spotting an oncoming AT-ACT.[6]

During the Battle of Jakku, the Duros Shriv Suurgav used the exclamation when he saw an MC80 Star Cruiser take heavy fire and go down in flames.[7]

Behind the scenesEdit

Archive audio of Pao exclaiming "Karabast!" can be commonly heard in the video game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes upon his defeat.
