"I got what I thought was a deal on this ship."
―Bosbit Matarcher, on his faulty Delemedian starhopper

Bosbit Matarcher was a male Human from the planet Delemede, who, after a relativistic shield malfunction during a brief hyperspace jump in 212 BBY, found himself nearly two hundred years in the future. This brought Matarcher brief fame, giving him a minor HoloNet News interview. However, Matacher was actually delighted because of the mishap; when he had left in 212 BBY, Delemede was dilapidated, but by the time of his return in 22 BBY, the planet was flourishing.



Bosbit Matarcher was a Human male from the planet of Delemede. In 212 BBY, when he was 35 years old, Matarcher bought a Delemedian starhopper, believing he had gotten a great deal for the starship. However, when he engaged the hyperdrive to take a quick jump outsystem, the relativistic shield on the starhopper—which was supposed to protect Matarcher from the strange bends in time and space associated with traveling at this hypervelocity—malfunctioned. The journey to leave the Delemede system took a mere two hours for Matarcher, but when he exited hyperspace, he found that to the outside galaxy, 190 years had passed, making it now 22 BBY. Matarcher was now 225 standard years old.[1]

This extreme and unusual malfunction brought Matarcher brief notoriety, resulting in a minor HoloNet News interview which detailed Matarcher's experience. In the interview, Matarcher said he would be returning to Delemede, but this time, he would be flying transit.[1]

Personality and traits

Despite the fact Matarcher had traveled 190 years through time, he was actually happy that the malfunction had occurred. When he had left Delemede in 212 BBY, the planet was dilapidated, but in 22 BBY, Delemede was thriving.[1]
