this tall, slender, male Romin was the leader of the Citizens' Resistance movement that tried to overturn the dictatorship of Roy Teda, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. Despite setbacks and brutal reprisals from the Security Management Control force, Joylin's resistance continued to grow. It was believed that they even had contacts and agents within Teda's own government. It was Joylin who had Anakin Skywalker and Ferus Olin kidnapped, in order to ask for their assistance in overturning Teda's rule. Joylin believed them to be Waldo and Ukiah, members of the gang known as the Slams. Joylin offered the false Slams the chance to be the only criminals allowed to live on Romin, in exchange for Anakin and Ferus's help in stealing information from Roy Teda's office. The Jedi reluctantly agreed, and Obi-Wan Kenobi managed to obtain the information and escape Teda's palace. With the information - mainly security and access codes - Joylin's rebels knocked out the main droid control system, then set out to eliminate the officers of the Security Management Control. Joylin had told the Jedi that he had ordered his forces to act with a minimum of bloodshed, an order he repeated as the revolt began. Unfortunately, years of pent-up anger launched the Romins into a frenzy, and many of the wealthy Romins in Eliior were slaughtered. In the end, Joylin proved just as blood-thirsty as his rebels, when he issued an order calling for Roy Teda to turn himself in for trial. If he failed to do so, Joylin would execute one member of his former staff at a time. Ultimately Teda fled Romin, which allowed Joylin to assume leadership of Romin for himself. This series of events was later twisted by Teda during testimony in front of the Galactic Senate, implicating the Jedi Knights as the masterminds behind the plot to remove him from power.
