Abyssins were a sentient species of cycloptic bipeds native to the planet Byss. Their physical characteristics included a swarthy greenish skin, green and white hair, and a single slit-pupilled eye. They also had the ability to regenerate missing limbs and could live to be three hundred years old. Some of them had three claw-tipped digits on each hand, while others had four human-like fingers. Jackar Bowmani, a male Abyssin, worked in the Jedi Temple as a munitions expert during the Clone Wars, while another, Myo, was a patron of Chalmun's Cantina in Mos Eisley when Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first met Han Solo and Chewbacca shortly before the Battle of Yavin.
Behind the scenesEdit
An Abyssin first appeared in the 1977 movie Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The name "Abyssin" itself was only coined in the Legends roleplaying game sourcebook Galaxy Guide 4: Alien Races in 1984. The first canon source to use the species's name was the reference book Star Wars: Complete Locations, released in 2016. Although the name was spelled as "Abbysin" in that book, author Jason Fry has confirmed this is merely a typo.
