Description: Jho, commonly known as "Old Jho", was a male Ithorian who operated a cantina known as Old Jho's Pit Stop on the planet Lothal fifteen years after the founding of the Galactic Empire. The criminal Broken Horn Syndicate attempted to extort the barkeeper for protection money, sending a IG-RM bodyguard and enforcer droid to collect it.
On the fifteenth Empire Day, a trio of Imperial TIE fighter pilots entered Jho's cantina and forced him to play the Imperial broadcast, which was hijacked by the senator-in-exile Gall Trayvis in order to declare a boycott of Imperial rule. Jho opposed Imperial rule and occasionally provided the rebel crew of the starship Ghost with information. He also helped the rebel sympathizer Merei Spanjaf, her family, and the Leonis parents to escape offworld. In 1 BBY, Old Jho was executed for helping suspected rebels escape and his bar was taken over by Baron Valen Rudor.
The Ithorian male known as "Old" Jho was born on the planet Ithor, but left his homeworld and settled on the planet Lothal at a time when the planet's Capital City was just a sleepy trading post. He remained on Lothal for many years, during which he witnessed Capital City transform into a busy center of administration for the Galactic Empire. On Lothal, Jho owned and operated a popular cantina known as Old Jho's Pit Stop and a docking bay, both located in a small, remote outpost/village which was known as Jhothal, which was named after him. The cantina was decorated with parts from a Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry dating from the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, which Jho claimed was the authentic remains of the vessel known as the Crumb Bomber.
Personality and traits
Jho was an intelligent individual with brown skin, yellow eyes and no hair. By the time of his encounter with the IG-RM thug droid, the Ithorian's age had taken a toll on his reflexes and strength which meant, despite his courage and willingness to fight, that Jho would have been unable to defeat the droid. During the encounter the bartender stood 1.99 meters tall and weighed 90 kilograms.
Jho was opposed to the rule of the Galactic Empire and ignored their mandate that the Imperial broadcast be played at all times, even arguing with the TIE pilots when they demanded he comply with the law. The Ithorian kept his ears open for information which could be useful to his customers or enemies of the Empire, and sometimes provided information to the rebel crew of the starship known as the Ghost, who he was friendly with and allowed to dock at his cantina. In combat, Jho would prefer to draw his blaster under the table to attack an opponent.
Jho enjoyed watching pirated holos of grav-ball games. In his youth, he enjoyed visiting Pelamir Gorge and listening to the sound of the wind whipping through the spine trees and sipping root tea, before the Empire razed the forests. His sympathies for the rebellion and opposition to the Empire later led him to join Azadi's rebel cell.
Jho used a translator to speak Galactic Basic instead of Ithorese so that customers would understand him. He used a hunting blaster in combat. He also owned a freighter with an "iffy" hyperdrive motivator which was also modified with weaponry capable of blasting Imperial speeder bikes into wreckage.
