- "You got it! That's the right answer. Shall we do another?"
- ―The Theed Palace librarian
A librarian was employed at a library within the Theed Royal Palace on Naboo during the Galactic Civil War, sometime after the Battle of Yavin. When a spacer visited the library during that time, the librarian offered to play a trivia game with them, which the spacer readily accepted. The librarian asked the spacer a multitude of questions, such as what single center of mass do both Talus and Tralus orbit around, and who formed the Brotherhood of the Sith, among many others. The spacer answered all questions correctly. The librarian, impressed, applauded the spacer's knowledge of the galaxy and gave the spacer a badge. The librarian welcomed the spacer to return later, remarking that they might have new questions to ask them.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The "trivial librarian," as they were commonly referred to as in-game, was featured in the 2003 massively-multiplayer online role-playing game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided. The librarian was added to the game with the release of the "Publish 6", on February 11, 2004. The librarian's species and sex, like many non-playable characters in the game, changed every time the game's servers were restarted.
One of the questions the librarian asked was "In what system is the planet Dathomir located?," with the correct answer being Quelii. This is incorrect however, as sources published after the release of the game have placed Dathomir in the Dathomir system, including the game's first expansion, and Geonosis and the Outer Rim Worlds. It is possible the designer of the trivia game meant sector instead system, as, according to The Essential Atlas, the planet Dathomir is in the Quelii sector.
