Subject 478-98 (also known as Blackstripe) was a Wookiee with a black stripe that bisected the center of its face. Blackstripe was enslaved by the Galactic Empire. In 5 ABY, Blackstripe was hunted by a modified assassin probe remotely controlled by Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck, who enjoyed hunting and killing Wookiees for amusement. Tolruck used the assassin probe to fire two toxo-darts into Blackstripe's chest. When the poison failed to slow down the Wookiee who continue climbing a wroshyr tree, Tolruck used his control visor to remotely launch the assassin probe into Blackstripe and explode. The explosion destroyed both the droid and killed Blackstripe. Dissatisfied with the hunt, he crushed his control visor in disgust.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Aftermath: Life Debt
- Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Endor to 4 ABY and the events of Shattered Empire 4, which take place three months after the battle, to 5 ABY. Furthermore, the novel Aftermath states that months have passed since the Battle of Endor, while Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath. Therefore, the events of Aftermath: Life Debt begin at least four months after the Battle of Endor, which corresponds to 5 ABY. Additionally, Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel, Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, thereby firmly placing Aftermath: Life Debt in 5 ABY.
