"Tell me how you know, Jixtus of the Grysks, […] If the Chiss mounted a raid, there would of course be prisoners. If there was a battle, even the most fearsome often leaves survivors. Tell me now, or I shall ask him."
Generalirius Nakirre to Jixtus[1]

Leia Organa was a prisoner aboard the Death Star

A prisoner was an individual who was captured and held in confinement by a third party.


During the Clone Wars, both the Galactic Republic[2] and the Confederacy of Independent Systems took prisoners.[3] Early in the Clone Wars, the Confederacy had clone troopers taken to Regent Queb's compound.[4] They also had Jedi taken to the Citadel.[3] The Republic kept their prisoners at the Naval Intelligence headquarters on Coruscant.[2]

During the Galactic Civil War, Princess Leia Organa was held prisoner by Darth Vader before she was rescued by Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca[5] assigned the designation of "Prisoner 2187."[6]

The Galactic Empire used the prisoners held in the mobile prison Accresker Jail as an expendable fighting force.[7]
