this thin man was the chief scientist at the Corulag Academy's Science Services center when Yoda and Mace Windu tried to enroll Teela Panjarra as a Jedi trainee. Frexton refused to release the child, hoping to use her as a subject to help determine what makes a being Force-sensitive. Master Yoda feared Frexton would perform any number of unusually cruel experiments on the girl, and rushed to Corulag to rescue her. When the Academy was attacked by Bartokk assassins working for Groodo the Hutt, Frexton tried to flee with Teela, but was cornered by Yoda. The two were forced to fight through Bartokks and X10-D droids under their control, but safelyt escaped with Teela.
