Sweitt Concorkill was a Vurk senator who served in the Galactic Senate of the Republic during the Clone Wars. Concorkill joined the Delegation of 2,000, a group of senators who were concerned with Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine's continued use of emergency powers during the war.
Shortly after the Battle of Coruscant in 19 BBY, Concorkill attended a performance of the opera Squid Lake at the Galaxies Opera House on the planet Coruscant. The senator sat in Palpatine's private viewing box along with Vice Chair Mas Amedda, senior administrative aide Sly Moore, and the Supreme Chancellor himself.
Midway through the performance, Palpatine calmly dismissed Concorkill, Amedda, and Moore from the box upon the arrival of Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, whom Palpatine had invited to watch the opera with him. Together, the two proceeded to have a private conversation on matters relating to knowledge of the Force.

Behind the scenesEdit
Sweitt Concorkill first appeared in the 2005 prequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. For the new Star Wars canon, the character was first identified by name in 2016 by the Star Wars: Card Trader app. That name had originally been introduced in the 2005 Star Wars Legends reference book Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by James Luceno.
Concorkill was originally meant to be an Ongree senator based on the design of character Pablo-Jill from Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones. However, once the Pablo-Jill model was redesigned for Revenge of the Sith, the Ongree senator's clothes were changed to Jedi robes, and the character was renamed Coleman Kcaj. As a result, the name Sweitt Concorkill was mistakenly applied to an image of Kcaj in Revenge of the Sith The Visual Dictionary. This error was ultimately rectified for Star Wars Legends in the 2005 Star Wars Insider 85 article "Who's Who in the Delegation of 2000," written by Daniel Wallace.
