Keder, also known as Keder the Black, was a Human male who worked as a highly-paid assassin and spy during the final years of the Galactic Republic. On the planet Coruscant, the capital planet of the Republic, Keder infiltrated the Galactic Senate in the disguise of a Senate Guard. The identity of both Keder's employer and his target were a mystery to all but himself. During his infiltration of the Senate, Keder wore a black Senate Guard helmet and robes and wielded an MK II Paladin blaster rifle. Keder also possessed a level of attunement to the Force.
