- "He was beheaded...messily too."
- ―Transmission from Band Light, speaking of Pend
Pend was a male who was part of the crew of the vessel Band Light, which was suspected of privateering during the reign of the Galactic Empire. At some point before or during 1 BBY, he and the rest of the crew of the Band Light were checking out an Etti-class light transport that was floating adrift near the planet Ord Mantell, when he died. He was checking for smuggled goods in a ventilation shaft near the galley on the light transport when he was beheaded by an Imperial Terror Trooper. When his body was found, it was suspected by the captain and the other crew members that something had dislodged on the ship, fallen, and killed him.
Behind the scenes
Pend was first mentioned in the "Terror Trooper" entry in the in-game databank of the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 versions of the LucasArts video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, which was released on October 26, 2010.
