Physical description




Chronological and political information

Umak Leth was an Imperial engineer. He was one of the chief weapons engineers on the original Death Star.



During the time leading up to the Clone Wars, Leth was a representative of the Galactic Republic's Ministry of Science.

In 22 BBY, Leth participated in a HoloNet debate, where he argued that the mysterious weapon targeting Republic task forces was possibly equipped with cloaking devices. He estimated that the power supply capable of destroying entire task forces of capital ships would require a vessel to be at least 8 kilometers long. He also speculated that a Jenth-class hypermatter core was the possible reactor being used for this.[1]

During the Great Jedi Purge, Leth designed the Lictor-class dungeon ship and Universal Energy Cage to hold and transfer Jedi captives. He also developed the "resonator" devices, weapons which were used to torture and subjugate the Marasan people. After the Battle of Yavin discredited Bevel Lemelisk, Leth was given the position of Master of Imperial Projects for his creation of an advanced model of molecular furnace.

Years later he designed the Galaxy Gun for the reborn Emperor Palpatine, as well as the World Devastators, SD-10 battle droids, and Shadow Droids. He was killed when Palpatine's flagship Eclipse II fell out of hyperspace and collided with the Galaxy Gun.

Behind the scenes

In the audio drama version of Empire's End, Leth was voiced by John Cygan.

He was to appear in an additional comic, Boba Fett vs. The Empire, but it was never made.
