"The news media isn't permitted to—"
"What are you going to do, Lieutenant? Blast them on a live holofeed?"
―Rasher Ke'e and Jaina Solo[1]

Rasher Ke'e was a female Bothan Lieutenant in Galactic Alliance Security, serving at a secret Galactic Alliance Security blockhouse where psychotic Jedi Knights Valin and Jysella Horn were being held in carbonite. In 43.5 ABY, a group of Jedi and media representatives arrived with a document giving them permission to visit the Horns. Ke'e was instructed by Security Captain Atar to allow only the Jedi access to the Horns, but the Jedi neglected her instructions, ensuring that the press accessed the Horns as well.


"The Horns and the Jedi can follow, Rasher. No one else."
"Yes, sir."
―Atar and Rasher Ke'e[1]

Rasher Ke'e was a Bothan female who served in Galactic Alliance Security during the time following the Second Galactic Civil War. By 43.5 ABY, she had attained the rank of lieutenant, and was stationed at a secret Galactic Alliance Security blockhouse on the galactic capital of Coruscant. In that year, several Jedi Knights began to develop a psychosis which caused them to believe that everyone they knew had been replaced by impostors.[1] The Galactic Federation of Free Alliances decided to deal with the matter by encasing the afflicted Jedi in carbonite.[2] Two of these Jedi, Jysella and Valin Horn, were placed in the blockhouse in which Ke'e was stationed.[1]

Around this time a group of Jedi, led by Jedi Knight Jaina Solo, acquired a legal document from Judge Arabelle Lorteli granting them visitation rights to the Horns. They arrived at the blockhouse with the Horns' parents and a large contingent of press. Solo presented the document to Security Captain Atar, who was forced to lead them to a turbolift that would take them to the carbonite-encased Jedi. Ke'e stood outside the turbolift, and Atar ordered that she allow only the Jedi and the Horns' parents through; as well as to check them all for weapons. Ke'e attempted to carry out her orders, instructing Jedi Master Cilghal to wait so that she could be searched, but Cilghal disregarded her request to search her for weapons, claiming she hadn't brought any. Frustrated, Ke'e ordered the rest of the present Security troopers to secure the lobby. She then tried to prevent the press from entering the turbolift, but Solo questioned the lieutenant's ability to stop them and led the reporters into the turbolift. Ke'e then threatened Solo, who disregarded the comment and followed the rest of the Jedi and reporters to the Horns.[1]

Personality and traits[]

"You are going to regret that, Jedi. We have a long reach."
"Lieutenant Ke'e, I have been threatened by assassin droids, Yuuzhan Vong Warmasters, and Sith Lords. Them, I worried about."
―Rasher Ke'e and Jaina Solo, after Solo ignored Ke'e's orders to prevent the press from visiting the Horns[1]

Rasher Ke'e attempted to follow her orders to the best of her ability and became very frustrated when the Jedi ignored her instructions. Ke'e even went so far as to threaten Solo, who disregarded the threat as unalarming.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Ke'e made her first and only appearance briefly in Troy Denning's 2009 novel, Fate of the Jedi: Abyss, the third novel in the nine-part Fate of the Jedi series.
