The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on official information from the Star Wars Legends continuity, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

"Doc! How's Jessop? He okay?"
"Your friend suffered from a rakghoul bite."
"Just a bite. So he got off easy?"
"He was infected with the rakghoul plague. He was turning into one of them, so I spared him the misery."
"I think I'm gonna be sick."
"There, there. We'll find you a grief counselor."
―A Republic soldier and the doctor[src]

During the Galactic Republic's attempted resettlement of the planet Taris, a male Twi'lek worked as a doctor. In the year 3643 BBY,[2] he treated the individual known as Jessop, who had been bitten by a rakghoul,[1] a type of Sithspawn that roamed Taris.[3]

When it became clear that Jessop had been infected with the rakghoul plague, which transformed the infected into rakghouls, the doctor was forced to kill his patient. While in the settlement of Olaris, the Twi'lek talked to a Republic soldier who had been friends with Jessop. After revealing to the soldier his friend's fate, the doctor offered to take him to a grief counselor.[1]

The doctor had green skin and blue eyes. He believed killing Jessop would be better than letting him live as a rakghoul, and attempted to comfort the soldier upon telling him of Jessop's death.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The doctor was created for[1] the 2011[4] massively multiplayer online role-playing video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, developed by BioWare. In the game, the doctor appears as a non-player character only identified as "Weary Doctor."[1]

  2. SWTOR mini.png STAR WARS: The Old Republic - Question ! :) - Page 3 on The Old Republic's official website (backup link) places 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 Act I for all classes can be assumed to occur in 3643 BBY. The Prologue for each class immediately precedes Act I, and Act III for all classes begins with the start of the Galactic War, which Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia places around 3640 BBY. Assuming that in-universe chronology of the Star Wars: The Old Republic events roughly aligns with the release of story content in real-life as with SWTOR mini.png Forums: Dear Story Team, What Year Are We Currently In? on The Old Republic's official website (backup link), the Act III Epilogue must take place near the end of 3640 BBY since it was the chronologically latest story of the The Old Republic base game, which was released toward the end of 2011. Therefore, assuming that The Old Republic takes place over the course of three years per the former of the two aforementioned swtor.com posts, Act I takes place near the end of 3643 BBY. As the three aforementioned classes can witness the conversation between the doctor and Jessop's friend on Taris, it must therefore take place in 3643 BBY.
