Mordianius was a Master Archivist active during the reign of the New Republic.[1] In 34 ABY,[2] Major Heck Ensio sent the archivist an armored case that had been uncovered in an excavation on the[1] Mid Rim planet[3] Durkteel amongst relics of the Galactic Civil War. It had been sent to Ensio by Durkteel's planetary governor, Vaxvissh Kal Ness, and bore the identifiers of the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[1]

The case contained the collection of non-electronic documents known as The Rebel Files, which detailed the history of the Alliance and was intended to be seen by only senior members of Alliance High Command. Mordianius passed the case and files on to Commander Korr Sella of the Resistance, who forwarded them on to Resistance leader and former Alliance High Command member General Leia Organa.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Modianius was first mentioned in the 2017 reference book Star Wars: The Rebel Files, which was written by Daniel Wallace.[1]

Notes and references[edit | edit source]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 Star Wars: The Rebel Files
  2. Star Wars: The Rebel Files establishes that The Rebel Files were buried on Durkteel at the same time as the Battle of Endor, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY. As the book also states that the files had not been seen for thirty years prior to their recovery, the excavation on Durkteel and the case's journey from Durkteel to Leia Organa must have taken place in 34 ABY.
