My Favorite Star Wars Character is without a doubt – Dexter Jettster. If you are a Star Wars veteran you will know that “Dex” is the Coruscant Informant that the young Obi-Wan Kenobi visits to get information on the “Kamino Saberdart”.
Dexter Jettster is a colorful character with an exciting past filled with wild experiences. His resume reads like a space-age renaissance man: prospecting, smuggling, running guns, a stint as a professional fighter and a reliable Jedi informant. Dex tops it all off by completing his dream of being a cook and restaurant owner in the best of part of the city–planet. I can’t thank enough George Lucas and his Star Wars Teams for creating this wonderful and memorable character.
Dex is a grizzled old character who always wanted to have a place where people would come to eat. It’s also a place where Dex could intermingle and share his stories of adventure and mystery. Don’ you get that feeling when Obi-Wan enters Dex’s diner and the waitress yells to Dex: “It’s a Jedi by the looks of him”. Dex’s response from the serving window expresses the warmth and friendliness of the diner that is Dex’s world.
My Favorite Star Wars Character is probably one of the least known and appreciated. I don’t think Dexter Jettster makes any of the top 10 Star Wars favorite lists. He is an unassuming and unique character who has a very small cameo spot in Attack of The Clones. But I love it when Dex comes out of the kitchen and gives Obi-Wan a big hug while also using one of his four arms to pull up his pants. Dexter is infamous for his short T-shirt revealing his big belly button and potbelly hanging over his grease stained apron. He’s not attractive by any physical means but for me, Dexter Jettster is My Favorite Star Wars Character.
I should think that you Jedi would have more respect for the difference between knowledge and… heh heh heh… wisdom. ~ Dexter Jettster
