"Productivity is everything. The Empire may have left us behind, but you remain, and in your name we seek to improve our margins. I've been trying to think of new ways to use the Wookiees..."
―Theodane Sardo, conferring with Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck[src]

Theodane Sardo was a male officer who served as Commandant of Camp Sardo on the planet Kashyyyk in 5 ABY. He managed the export of Wookiee slaves for Imperial projects offworld. After the Battle of Endor led to a drop in demand for Wookiee slaves, Sardo advocated the idea of crossbreeding Wookiees with another species like Talz for food.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Theodane Sardo was an Imperial Commandant at Camp Sardo on the planet Kashyyyk during the Galactic Civil War. He was responsible for overseeing the breeding and export of Wookiee slaves from Kashyyyk to offworld Imperial projects. A year after the Battle of Endor, the demand for Wookiee slaves dried up due to the massive defeats sustained by the Empire at the hands of the New Republic, the government created by the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[1]

Sardo corresponded with Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck by hologram and suggested farming the Wookiees for meat. Since their flesh was stringy and tough, he recommended fattening them up or crossbreeding them with another species like the Talz. Tolruck liked the idea and told Commandant Sardo to explore the plan. Ultimately, Sardo's plan was foiled by the outbreak of a planetwide Wookiee uprising that saw the destruction of Camp Sardo and the end of Imperial rule on Kashyyyk.[1]

Personality and traits[edit | edit source]

"Could the Wookiees be farmed for their meat? Presently it's stringy and tough, but maybe if they could be fattened up, or modified in some way—crossbred with another species, perhaps, like the Talz."
―Theodane viewed Wookiees as livestock[src]

Theodane Sardo was a sycophant who was willing to do the bidding of Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck. He was a sadistic and opportunistic commandant who viewed his Wookiee slaves as expendable livestock and slaves. Sardo was known to have eaten Wookiee meat, which he found stringy and tough.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Theodane Sardo first appeared as a minor antagonist in Chuck Wendig's 2016 novel Aftermath: Life Debt.
