  • We believe there may even be descendents of exiles from the Old Republic who do not know that the political order has changed for the better, that the Emperor's New Order has replaced the corruption and unpleasantness.—Pollux Hax[src]

    Pollux Hax was a male Humanoid who lived on Coruscant and served as the Minister of Information of Emperor Sheev Palpatine's Galactic Empire. Hax was tasked with keeping the journalists in check so their reports coincided with the Imperial propaganda. The minister also worked with Eris Harro, Bureau Chief for the Outer Rim Node of the HoloNet News, to warn the population of a rebellious group based on Lothal.


    A male humanoid who lived on the planet Coruscant, Pollux Hax became a loyal bureaucrat who pledged his service to the Galactic Empire after the Clone Wars came to an end in 19 BBY. During the Empire's rule across the galaxy, Hax became one of the most trusted aides to Emperor Sheev Palpatine.

    By the year 5 BBY, Hax served as Palpatine's Minister of Information and worked on Level 5127 in the Federal District on Coruscant. In that capacity, the bureaucrat was part of the Coalition for Progress, a sub-agency of the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order—or COMPNOR for short. The minister maintained an office in the COMPNOR arcology, a building located on the highest surface level of Coruscant. Hax notably made sure that the stories provided by the HoloNet News, the only state-sanctioned news agency, were consistent with government messaging.

    In 4 BBY, Hax worked in lockstep with Eris Harro, Bureau Chief for the Outer Rim Node of the HoloNet News. The two wrote a letter of congratulations to new members of the Imperial Press Corps, awarding them their official press pins. In an effort to punish seditiious activities, Hax and Harro also provided the Imperial Press Corps with a series of six wanted posters depicting the members of a Lothal-based rebellious group.

    By the time of the destruction of Alderaan, he had been the chief of the Emperor's Propaganda Dissemination Section for several years. Hax was notably commissioned to write an article promoting the Imperial Center, the capital world of the Galactic Empire, formerly known as Coruscant. Pollux Hax praised the Emperor's political ideology throughout the article.

    Personality and TraitsEdit

    Pollux Hax was a tall, gaunt humanoid with sallow skin, deep set eyes and sunken cheeks. He wore long, concealing robes that came in various shades of purple and black. In the communiqués issued for the Imperial Press Corps, Pollux Hax professed the deepest loyalty to the Empire, as appropriate for a member of the COMPNOR. The minister exhorted the journalists to keep an eye for potential insurgents and report any suspect activity to the military. Hax expressed the conviction that safety within the galaxy could be best achieved through close cooperation between the journalists and the Empire's officials.
