The founder of a Polish town received an accidental makeover befitting of an evil Sith.

Jakub Wejher was a nobleman who founded the large town of Wejherowo, in the northern part of Poland, in 1643. He still watches over his home thanks to a statue honoring him in the middle of the town square. While he probably doesn’t have as many costumes as the Manneken Pis statue in Brussels, Wejherowo residents will put a Santa hat on him around Christmastime.

Who needs to chase after the Rebellion when you’ve already got complete control over Wejherowo? Wejher has prime real estate right here.
