Vedain is a minor antagonist in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
He was portrayed by Paul Weston.
Vedain was a slave owned by Jabba the Hutt. He worked as the pilot of the cargo skiff used to transport Jabba's prisoners to the Great Pit of Carkoon, where they were eaten by a giant monster called the Sarlacc. One such attempted execution was that of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Chewbacca, who were about to be thrown in when a droid named R2-D2 gave Skywalker his lightsaber, allowing him to free himself and his friends. Vedain and the rest of Jabba's thugs went to stop them, but Vedain was attacked by a disguised Lando Calrissian and was then accidentally shot by one of Jabba's other goons, Vizam. This caused him and Calrissian to fall into the Pit, where Vedain was eaten by the Sarlacc, although Calrissian escaped.
