- "Sixtus Quin was a Special Intelligence Operative who was betrayed by his Imperial commander, so he helped us out in a mission on Tatooine."
- ―Wedge Antilles
Sixtus Quin was an Imperial Special Intelligence operative who later defected to the Alliance to Restore the Republic. He eventually left the Rebel Alliance and went into business with Elscol Loro, forming an anti-Imperial mercenary organization.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Quin and his elite squad left the Empire after being betrayed by Captain Marl Semtin. Sixtus killed Semtin at Eidolon Base on Tatooine, and his squad joined forces with former Rogue Squadron pilot Elscol Loro to form an anti-Imperial mercenary group.
Sixtus and Elscol would later be recruited by the members of Rogue Squadron in 7 ABY after the Rogues left the New Republic to wage the Bacta War against Ysanne Isard. Sixtus, Elscol, Mirax Terrik, Iella Wessiri, and Corran Horn were inserted into Thyferra to create a native Vratix insurgency and defeat Isard's forces on the planet. Despite a skirmish at the spaceport and attacks on the Vratix by Isard's troops, Sixtus was able to create a formidable resistance force. Sixtus helped capture and humiliate Erisi Dlarit's father. As the Rogues and their allies engaged Isard's flagship Lusankya over Thyferra, Sixtus and the insurgents attacked Isard's headquarters, eventually capturing Fliry Vorru, although Isard escaped in a shuttle. Ultimately, the Bacta War was a success and Isard was presumed killed.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Michael A. Stackpole did not originally intend Sixtus to be black; he was made that way by John Nadeau, the illustrator of Star Wars: X-Wing Rogue Squadron: Battleground: Tatooine.
