The Alpheridians were a sentient species, native to the planet Alpheridies in the Expansion Region. The species shared their homeworld with the Miraluka species, who immigrated en masse to the planet several thousand years before the Great Sith War after their original homeworld experienced geophysical and geo-chemical instability. By the time of the Great Sith War in 4000 BBY, the Alpheridians constituted seven per cent of the planet's population, with the Miraluka making up 90 per cent. In 0 BBY, a number of Alpheridian bounty hunters were present on Tatooine. The Rodian bounty hunter Greedo witnessed a number of them enter Chalmun's Cantina in Mos Eisley.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Alpheridians were created by Tom and Martha Veitch for the short story A Hunter's Fate: Greedo's Tale, published by Bantam Spectra in 1995 as part of the anthology Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina.
