Shoan Kilian was a human Corellian[1] male[2] officer who held the rank of Admiral in the Galactic Republic Navy during the Clone Wars against the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the war,[3] he[2] commanded the Venator-class Star Destroyer Endurance while it made a training tour near the planet Vanqor. The young bounty hunter Boba Fett was able to infiltrate the ship and sabotage it, causing the Endurance to crash onto Vanqor's surface.[3] Kilian refused to abandon his ship but survived the crash and was taken captive by Fett and his bounty hunter comrades along with Clone Commander Ponds and a clone naval officer.[4] The Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano eventually rescued Kilian before the bounty hunter Bossk could kill him.[5]


At some point during or before 21 BBY, Shoan Kilian had obtained the rank of Admiral while serving in the Galactic Republic's Navy. When the Clone Wars broke out across the galaxy, Kilian continued to serve in the Navy and assumed command of the Endurance, a Venator-Class Star Destroyer which belonged to the Open Circle Fleet's Fifth Fleet. During his service aboard the vessel, Kilian oversaw a visit from a Clone Youth Brigade.
