"Captain Rooks… contact the Mandalore… I will give him the terms of his surrender."
―Ulic Qel-Droma to Rooks[src]

Rooks was a Human male and a captain in the service of the Krath during the era of the Great Sith War.[1] Rooks commanded a Krath patrol ship,[2] and in 3996 BBY, he served on a Krath command yacht under two of the Krath's leaders; fallen Jedi Knight-turned-Sith Lord Ulic Qel-Droma and his lover Aleema Keto. While Rooks was present on the command yacht, the Tetan fleet came under attack from a Mandalorian strike force, commanded by their leader Mandalore the Indomitable. After the Mandalorians caused some damage to the Tetans, Qel-Droma ordered Rooks to open up a line of communication with the Mandalore. Rooks obeyed the Sith's order, and established a video feed to the Mandalore's flagship. The Mandalore took the opportunity to challenge Qel-Droma to single combat, an offer the Jedi accepted.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Rooks made his first and only appearance in the first issue of the Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi comic book series, written by Kevin J. Anderson and released in 1995. In Rooks' only appearance in the issue, he was illustrated by Dario Carrasco, Jr.[1] Rooks was also given mentions in the Star Wars Encyclopedia[3] and The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia.[2]
