"Son, I wouldn't be so hasty if I were you."
Cad Bane, to Captain Jayfon — (audio)Listen (file info)

Captain Jayfon was a Human male who led a group of Senate Commandos against a team of bounty hunters led by the Duros Cad Bane when the bounty hunters attempted to raid the Republic Executive Building on Coruscant circa 22 BBY. After Bane landed at the Executive Building's restricted landing platform without permission, Jayfon and a squad of guards ordered Bane to surrender. When the captain ordered one of his subordinates to handcuff Bane, the bounty hunter Aurra Sing opened fire on the guards. Bane himself attacked Jayfon, snapping his neck and killing him. The rest of the guards were also eliminated.

Biography

"Put up your hands."
"I've got business with the Senate. How 'bout you fellas step aside?"
―The commando captain and Cad Bane — (audio)Listen (file info)

The Human male Jayfon was a captain of the Senate Commandos,[3] a special unit of the Galactic Republic Senate Guard,[4] around 22 BBY.[1] After the Hutt crime lord Ziro Desilijic Tiure was arrested by the Republic for his participation in a plot to seize control of the criminal empire of his nephew, Jabba Desilijic Tiure,[1] the bounty hunter Cad Bane was hired to free Ziro from the Republic Judiciary Central Detention Center on Coruscant. Along with a team of hunters, Bane set down on a restricted landing platform of Coruscant's Republic Executive Building without permission in order to capture senators and force Supreme Chancellor Palpatine to release Ziro.[2]

Captain Jayfon ordering Bane to surrender

As Bane disembarked his vehicle, Jayfon and several other Senate Commandos confronted the bounty hunter, and the captain ordered Bane to surrender. After Bane replied that he had business with the Galactic Senate and ordered the guards to step aside, Jayfon told the bounty hunter to drop to his knees, and one of the guards was sent to handcuff Bane. However, the bounty hunter Aurra Sing opened fire on the guards with her sniper rifle, and Bane attacked the captain. Pressing the guard against a vehicle, Bane grabbed Jayfon's head and snapped his neck, killing him. The other Senate Commandos were dispatched by the other bounty hunters, and Bane ordered the BX-series droid commandos of his team to put on the uniforms of the deceased soldiers to make it look as though the commandos were still at their post.[2]

Personality and traits

Although the no-nonsense Jayfon[4] was a well-trained Senate Commando, his underestimation of Bane's abilities ultimately cost him his life. He was equipped with standard Senate Commando armor.[2]
