When the band was booked to play in Mos Eisley, the popular local band Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes
intercepted them at the spaceport and tried to cause trouble, feeling
Orbus and his band were intruding on their territory. A fight broke
out, and Evar Orbus was killed in the insuing gunfire. His fellow
Galactic Wailers survived, and later renamed themselves the Max Rebo Band, moving on with their careers.
young musician, he was often seen playing music at a flanth house, and
accepted food as his only payment. This was where he was discovered by Evar Orbus,
who was on the lookout for a talented yet exploitable entertainer.
Orbus approached Phantele, promising him that he would never need to go
hungry again, provided that he signed his musical services over.
Phantele's constant pursuit of food told him that this was an
opportunity not to be missed.
Phantele signed himself over to Orbus, and on the recommendation of his new manager, changed his name to Max Rebo. Shortly after, the Max Rebo Band was formed. Rebo played the red ball organ.
Evar Orbus was killed soon after the formation of the band, and this was when Sy Snootles
encouraged Rebo to take lead of the musical group. Snootles, however,
discreetly controlled the band herself, letting naive Rebo take the
credit as frontman. She did this in order to avoid becoming the target
of those that the band might - and most likely would - potentially anger.
Snootles' plan had terrible repercussions for the band however, when Rebo signed the entire band over to Jabba the Hutt in exchange for an unlimited supply of food.
The band was confined to performing in Jabba's Palace, until Jabba died at the hands of Leia Organa and the rebels. Rebo set out on his own solo career, and after many tours, joined the New Republic to entertain soldiers.
He eventually left the music industry, and opened his own chain of restaurants: Max's Flanth House. He became quite rich, and finally settled on Coruscant.
Dancer in Jabba the Hutt's court
Oola was a Twi'lek dancer in Jabba the Hutt's court. She was the daughter of a clan chieftain on Ryloth and was kidnapped and trained by Bib Fortuna and Jerris Rudd as a gift to Jabba. She was also the half sister of Nolaa Tarkona, the leader of the Diversity Alliance.
She and Sienn (another Twi'lek) were trained together as dancers at one of the greatest dance schools on Ryloth. As they were in Mos Eisley on their way to Jabba's Palace, Luke Skywalker
ran into them and attempted to set them free. He killed Rudd and
rescued Sienn, but Fortuna got away with Oola, and succeeded in giving
her to Jabba.
Rather than the customary dancing veils, Oola was given only a
flimsy net costume to wear, loosely held together by narrow leather
strips. Jabba was immediately enamoured with her, and chained her to
his throne as his personal slave girl. Oola was forced to dance for
him, as well as give pleasure when the depraved crimelord beckoned, but she was determined to escape from her horrible existence, one way or another.
Vocalist, musician & dancer
Greeata Jendowanian was a female Rodian vocalist, musician and dancer.
Born on the Rodian homeworld of Rodia,
Greeata was considered an outcast by the violent Rodian society for her
love of music and dance. The name “Greeata” is a common name for female
Rodians meaning “talented”. Rather than focus on hunting, Greeata
absorbed any information she could find on the music and dance of many
intergalactic cultures. Having rejected the values of Rodian culture,
Greeata left her homeworld to perform as a Kloo horn player aboard the intergalactic cruiseliner Kuari Princess.
Greeata developed a friendship with Sy Snootles, lead singer for Kuari Princess's
house band. After forcefully rejecting the sexual advances of a male
Rodian, Greeata and Sy left the house band to perform as a duo. Max Rebo discovered the pair performing in cantina on Tothis.
Mesmerized by Snootles' voice, Max Rebo asked her to audition for his
band. While excited, Snootles said that she would only join if Rebo
offered Greeata a spot. After learning that Greeata could sing, dance,
and play the Kloo horn, Max signed her on as a dancer on a per diem
Musician in the Max Rebo Band
Droopy McCool, or Snit, was a member of the Max Rebo Band. He was a Kitonak from the planet Kirdo III, and played a flute made from a hollow chidinka plant from his home planet.
It is unclear how Snit left Kirdo III, but he reached Ovrax IV with a slaver company. A melancholic Kitonak, he longed for the companion of others of his species.
It was on Ovrax IV that Snit was bought by Evar Orbus. Orbus was the lead voice of a music group, Evar Orbus and His Galactic Wailers, also featuring Max Rebo and Sy Snootles.
However, Orbus would rather say that he "hired" Snit instead of buying
him. Snit's belly was big enough to hide his legs, and partner Rebo was
envious of what he considered a great feeding.
Snootles was fond of Snit. Due to the Kitonak's natural
patience, Snit could listen to the singer's complains and thoughts for
hours without saying a word, and then he would gently soothe her pains
and fears. "Snooty" believed that it was Snit who kept the group
Robbe Nostler was a male reporter who worked for the Galactic News Network. He was the Bureau Chief at the Indu GNN bureau on Indu San.
When Kella Rand came in to the office to study her past vidclips, he was engrossed in a holoclip report of an Ithorian entertainer accompanied by music.
Former theater actor, Imperial governor later in his life
Jaalib Brandl was born on Trulalis in 17 BBY, the only son of Adalric Cessius Brandl.
He lived with his mother, who always used to cry at the mention of his
father's name. When his father came back to Trulalis Jaalib recognised
him whereas his father did not recognise his son.
Jaalib went to meet his father at the Kierra, Captian Thaddeus Ross's ship. They then got attacked by a Z-95 Headhunter and Jaalib had to run back to the village. However not before he told his father he wanted to be a great actor.
He believed that his father was an actor not a Dark Jedi.
Rystáll Sant was a dancer for the Max Rebo Band. She was a Near-Human hybrid (her father was a Human, while her mother was of the Theelin species) raised on Coruscant, but was abandoned by her biological parents and adopted by an Ortolan couple who worked as musicians. Rystáll became a dancer in their performances.
Rystáll performed in Jabba's Palace on Tatooine during Luke Skywalker's attempt to rescue his friend Han Solo. Rystáll's graceful form and beautiful, exotic features managed to attract the attention of bounty hunter Boba Fett, who engaged in conversation with the dancer prior to Leia Organa's arrival at the palace.
Rystáll, along with Greeata Jendowanian (who had danced with her at Jabba's Palace), later joined a band known as The Palpatones.
Although Greeata served as lead singer, as part of the band, Rystáll
still gained fame for her musical ability.
Lyn Me became a fast friend of the band's other women—Sy Snootles, Rystáll Sant, and Greeata Jendowanian. Rystáll Sant occasionally used Lyn Me's name as an alias while on business in Mos Eisley.
Adalric Cessius Brandl was a handsome former stage actor who went on to become one of the Inquisitors. During his service, he had felt conflicted with following the dark side and the Emperor. He went rogue, travelling from sector to sector, killing freely along the way, until he had returned to his home planet Trulalis. There, he encountered his old acting master, Master Otias, who refused him forgiveness for his many crimes, and his son- Jaalib Brandl. There, something changed inside Brandl, and he signaled the Imperial Starfleet his location. As the smuggler he had hired to transport him navigated his vessel out of the atmosphere, a Star Destroyer arrived and captured the Kierra.
The smuggler was released with 10,000 credits (a tenth of the bounty on
Brandl's head), and fled the doomed Star Destroyer mere moments before
Brandl set off a number of thermal detonators, destroying the vessel,
and (so the Empire and New Republic believed) himself.
In reality, he had escaped (with a number of wounds and scars),
and had returned to Trulalis where he tutored his son in acting. There,
he encountered Fable Astin,
and trained her in lightsaber combat. Unbeknownst to Fable, Brandl had
made arrangements with the Reborn Emperor on the planet Byss
to bring him Fable as a gift, to redeem Brandl in the Emperor's eyes.
His son, going through the ship's logs, discovered the trip, and warned
Fable, calling her fellow Rebel Alliance crewmates to her aid. High
whose apprentice Vialco Fable had killed with the aid of Brandl's
teachings, received Jaalib as his new apprentice. Adalric arranged this
to punish Jaalib for rescuing Fable.
Adalric's whereabouts afterwards are unknown.
