"I grow tired of your incompetence, Admiral Mummert—as I grow tired of your excuses."
―Darth Vader, mere seconds before killing Mummert[src]

Mummert was a male human who served as an admiral in the Galactic Empire. At some point during the Galactic Civil War, Lord Darth Vader tasked the admiral with deploying starships in the Hortolo system. However, gathering the proper divisions took longer than expected, and the admiral was unable to fulfill his mission within the deadlines. Mummert reported to Vader on his Star Destroyer, where he was telekinetically choked to death by Vader when he reported the bad news via viewscreen, disturbing the dark lord in his chambers.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Mummert was introduced and killed in "No Good Deed...," a mini-comic that was attached to the first issue of the Star Wars: Darth Vader (2017) comic series.

In the space of a single page, Vader refers to Mummert both as a general and an admiral. However, Mummert's involvement with starship deployment pleads in favor of his being an admiral.


Notes and references[]

  1. "No Good Deed..." depicts Mummert's death. Given that Anakin Skywalker becomes Darth Vader (the latter of which is present in the story) in 19 BBY, the story must take place in or after that year. It must also be in or before 14 BBY, as by that time, Vader's flagship is the Perilous, and not his Venator-class seen in this story. As such, Mummert's death must be in or between these years.
