"There is a customer waiting on them in the bar at the Mos Espa Starport. He is also the man I am buying the engine parts from. I have a credit chip to pay for the engines which are off an old Y-wing model. You'll need to give him the credit chip."
Wald, to a spacer[1]

Qord D'Baelor was a Human male who lived on Tatooine during the Galactic Civil War.


"Wonderful! I have transferred the appropriate credits to Wald's accounts. Wald said he is waiting for you back at Watto's shop."
―Qord D'Baelor, to a spacer[1]

Sometime after the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, Qord D'Baelor was doing business with the junk dealer Watto in Mos Espa.[1] In 1 ABY,[2] he could be found in the bar of the Mos Espa Starport. While here, he expected a delivery of swoop parts from Watto. Unfortunately, a local gang of teenagers called the Laser Flits ambushed the delivery of swoop parts before they could reach D'Baelor. W. Wald, overburdened by this turn of events, relied on a helpful spacer to retrieve the ten swoop parts from their hideout within the city.[1]

Fortunately for Wald and his customer, the spacer succeeded in retrieving the parts. In addition, Wald also wished to buy engines from D'Baelor, which were retrieved from an old Y-wing model. In addition to delivering the swoop parts to D'Baelor, Wald also tasked the spacer with giving him a credit chip to pay for the engine parts. When the spacer found D'Baelor, he was thrilled to have been given the swoop parts, and was more than willing to part with his Y-wing engines.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Qord D'Baelor was a Non-Player Character (NPC) in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts,[1] prior to its closure on December 15, 2011.[3] He was added as part of the quest titled "Wald's Woes" with the release of "Chapter 2: The Talus Incident," on August 1, 2006.[4] Players who performed a series of quests for Wald had to deliver and retrieve vehicle parts from D'Baelor.[1]

  2. The opening crawl of Star Wars Galaxies dates the game to after the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, and additionally, Serji-X Arrogantus, who died in Star Wars (1977) 10—the events of which The New Essential Chronology dates to 0 ABY—appears in the game. Therefore, at least a portion of Star Wars Galaxies must be set in that year. Furthermore, in the game Ruwan Tokai references the destruction of the Death Star as having occurred one year earlier, and Strongholds of Resistance also places the events of Galaxies' Chapter 9: "The Fury of Exar Kun" in 1 ABY. Lastly, while Chapter 11: "The Battle of Echo Base" features the Battle of Hoth—dated to 3 ABY by The New Essential Chronology—the developers have stated that the portrayal of that battle in the game is intentionally anachronistic. Therefore, the events of Star Wars Galaxies must span from 0 ABY to around 1 ABY.
