The Ommin harness was a mechanical spine worn by frail individuals to provide support and maneuverability. The device existed in ancient times, as the Sith king Ommin reportedly wore one. During the New Republic Era and the subsequent First Order–Resistance war, the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious wore an Ommin harness within his fortress on Exegol due to his decaying physical body.


An Ommin harness was a type of cybernetic dedicated to providing a frail individual with increased maneuverability. In ancient times, a Sith king named Ommin wore an Ommin harness to support him.[2]

After his defeat over Endor in 4 ABY,[3] the Dark Lord of the Sith and Galactic Emperor Darth Sidious transferred his consciousness into a clone body on Exegol to survive. However, Sidious' immense power caused the body to deteriorate, eventually prompting the Sith Lord to wear an Ommin harness in support of his decrepit form.[2]

In 35 ABY,[4] Sidious wore the harness during his residence within the Sith Citadel on Exegol. During the Battle of Exegol, Sidious drained the Force energy of Ben Solo and Rey's dyad, restoring his physical form. As such, he subsequently dismounted from the Ommin harness, and was killed shortly after by Rey.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Ommin harness first appeared in Star Wars canon in the 2019 film Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker, the third and final installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy.[1] It was subsequently identified in the accompanying novelization, authored by Rae Carson and released in 2020.[2]

Ommin's mechanical exoskeleton was originally introduced in the Star Wars Legends continuity in Tales of the Jedi: The Freedon Nadd Uprising 1,[5] written by Tom Veitch, penciled by Tony Akins, and released on August 2, 1994.[6]
