Evidence that he died at Yavin? Edit

In Darth Vader 1, the Emperor states that, after the Death Star's destruction, he would have "no one [he] could use" if Cassio Tagge hadn't left the station before its destruction. Surely that indicates that Romodi died, right? --Lelal Mekha The Uprising crest (Audience Room) 12:05, January 24, 2017 (UTC)

  • Pretty sure that's an indicator, unless he didn't value Romodi that much. But I'd say more likely he's dead --Lewisr (talk) 12:09, January 24, 2017 (UTC)
    • I'm currently working on the article, and I'd like to bring it to status some day. Although I do, I'm unsure everyone would agree that indicator is enough to ascertain Romodi did die at Yavin, so... I'd like to hear as many opinions as possible. --Lelal Mekha The Uprising crest (Audience Room) 12:26, January 24, 2017 (UTC)
      • It seems too speculative to say that about Romodi as, though clearly he had an important role on the Death Star, it wasn't outright said that Palpatine valued him greatly. I would say the Battle of Yavin and its outcome alone should be the only way to end Romodi's bio in both continuities, provided of course nothing later reveals something new about him in that battle. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 04:51, January 28, 2017 (UTC)
        • I think Palpatine's that comment should certainly be addressed somewhere in the article, however I agree that doesn't totally confirm his death. TanDivoInsignia-SenateMurders AnilSerifoglu (talk) 00:10, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
          • As others have already stated, while it's more than likely Romodi perished at Yavin, one could argue that Palpatine simply didn't believe he could make use of him like he could Tagge. Until we get official confirmation, I'd hold off on saying Romodi died. Cevan IMPpress (talk) 00:14, February 16, 2017 (UTC)
  • Okay, so I was recently re-watching the battle of yavin to check if Bast was present near the end. He is, about 48 seconds before the Death Star explodes, which I'd say is no time to escape. He is right next to Tarkin when he says "You may fire when ready". However, something interesting is that to their left, a man can be seen slouched against a navy trooper's console. While we can only see the back of his head, it does look a bit like Romodi. If it is him, I'd say it would confirm his death. - Tommy-Macaroni Imperial Emblem (Talk) 07:23, July 27, 2017 (UTC)

Eye color Edit

In the fifth part of the Rogue One comic adaptation, Romodi has brown eyes. I could have sworn, however, that Andy de la Tour is blue-eyed. Am I mistaken? --Lelal Mekha The Uprising crest (Audience Room) 14:50, August 2, 2017 (UTC)

  • Nope he does have blue eyes! Hurst has been taking the same things as Saw to have his eyes color changed --Lewisr (talk) 14:51, August 2, 2017 (UTC)

Infobox image Edit

Having edited here for 12 years, I know very well that our policies encourage the use of a character's latest appearance in the infobox. There are, however, cases in which an exception should be made (e.g. Obi-Wan Kenobi does not feature the picture of a ghost, and Anakin Skywalker uses the Episode III version). In this case, I'd like to point out there are only a few days (at most) between Rogue One and A New Hope. On one hand, we have a blurry shot of an extra, and on the other hand, a clea, high-resolution pic of a well-identified actor. It stands to reason that the picture of Andy de la Tour as Romodi should be used. --Lelal Mekha The Uprising crest (Audience Room) 15:34, January 23, 2018 (UTC)

  • Of course we should use the picture from Rogue One. The rule about latest appearances is not supposed to be taken literally, or we'd have tons of articles with bad infobox images... The picture from A New Hope is terrible quality, and, like LelalMekha points out, there are only a few days between the appearances. Quite frankly, I don't understand what the problem is... Nightlily (talk) 15:50, January 23, 2018 (UTC)
    • Agreed with Lelal and Nightlily. A full image is better than a background extra shot. Rogue One is the character's most prominent appearance. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 17:09, January 23, 2018 (UTC)
      • I agree, the Rogue One image is also of higher quality--Vitus InfinitusTalk 18:05, January 23, 2018 (UTC)
