- «T7 = detected assassin in crowd // T7 = discharged stun bolt // Assassin = dropped blaster and escaped in crowd»
A member of the GenoHaradan, a secret society of assassins, was active during the Great Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire. In 3663 BBY, the assassin was tasked with the elimination of a Muun ambassador, and attempted to kill the target while in the middle of a crowd. However, the astromech droid T7-O1, who had been assigned to protect the Muun, fired a stun bolt into the crowd, and the assassin dropped their blaster and fled in the resultant chaos. The assassin was never caught, and the ambassador decided to resign in order to forestall any more assassination attempts.
Behind the scenes
The GenoHaradan assassin was first mentioned in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare and LucasArts in 2011, during the conversation "The Assassination" with the Jedi Knight class companion character T7-O1. The conversation did not specify the assassin's species, name, or gender.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Conversation with T7-O1: "The Assassination"
- Star Wars: The Old Republic about ten to twelve years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which is dated to 3653 BBY by Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2 takes place ten years after the treaty, one week after the mission to Nar Shaddaa, and around the time of the SpecForce Incident. Since the mission and the incident are respectively part of Act I of the Jedi Knight and Republic Trooper's storylines, and the Trooper's Act I occurs concurrent to Act I of the Smuggler storyline, the general events of the Prologue and Act I for all classes can be assumed to occur in 3643 BBY. Adding twenty years to the date of 3,643 BBY gives a resultant date of 3,663 BBY. places
