The friendly owner of Dex's Diner and font of Galactic wisdom.
That's a Smile.
Dexter Jettster, or Dex to his friends, is the friendly owner of Dex's Diner in Coruscant's upper levels. While other buildings shoot into the sky, Dex kept his establishment small, quaint, and welcoming. He employs Hermione Bagwa and WA-7, or FLO, as waitresses. He is kind and jovial to all his customers. His past is varied as he frequently jumped jobs. At various points, he owned a bar, was a weapons dealer, and acted as a prospector on the planet Subterrel. However, his first and true love is cooking. As a Besalisk, his many hands make him a deft cook, and he enjoys sampling his own work as evidenced by his girth.
Dexter Jettster loves his work at his diner in the Collective Commerce District of Coruscant. His eatery is constantly abuzz with activity, and he gets to meet new people. Occasionally he has to mediate conflict between his two waitresses, one is Human and the other is a droid. Most of the time, life is fun and relaxing.
Dexter Know A Lot of Stuff.
Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi is an old friend of Dex's and comes to Dex's Diner in search of information. Kenobi orders a Jawa Juice, a bitter alcoholic drink rumored to actually be made from the tears of Jawas . This rumor is spurious at best. Dex hugs Kenobi is large gesture of friendship. He is happy to see his old friend for the first time in a long time. After some opening pleasantries, Kenobi shows Dex a poison dart recently used by a jet-packed bounty hunter to kill his partner. Kenobi claims that the data analysis droids at the Jedi Temple could not identify the origin of the dart. Dex chides Obi-Wan Kenobi for not knowing the difference between knowledge and wisdom. Kenobi is a Jedi and should know this most basic tenet of philosophy. Still, Kenobi did eventually come to Dex for wisdom, which the elderly cook has plenty to share. Dex correctly identifies the dart as a Kamino Saber Dart. He explains that he first saw one of these poison tipped darts while prospecting on Subterrel, beyond the Outer Rim. He then explains about the planet Kamino. The Kaminoans are cloners, good ones, that use accelerated aging rather than flash cloning. Their products are the best clones in the Galaxy. However, they are also very secretive. Dex gives Kenobi the spatial coordinates of the Kamino System: 12 Parsecs outside the Rishi Maze. Obi-Wan Kenobi thanks Dex for the assistance and departs.
