"Funny, the man who left me behind is now my savior. Mando."
―Qin to Din Djarin[2]

Qin,[2] designated prisoner X-6-9-11 after being arrested by the New Republic,[3] was a Twi'lek male mercenary from Ryloth and the twin brother of Xi'an.[1] When Qin was imprisoned aboard the New Republic transport Bothan-5,[4] Qin's associate Ranzar "Ran" Malk sent a crew of mercenaries to rescue him, which included Xi'an, Burg, Migs Mayfeld, and the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin. The team betrayed Djarin and left him for dead, but the bounty hunter escaped and imprisoned the mercenaries in one of the transport's prison cells. Djarin returned Qin to Ran, but had hidden a New Republic tracker in the Twi'lek's clothing. The tracker, which had been set off when the mercenaries infiltrated the transport, led a New Republic squadron to the space station, the Roost, where Ran operated. The squadron fired on the station, forcing Qin to take cover.[2]
