Athgar Heece was a Dybrinthe bounty hunter who operated in the Niima Outpost on the desert planet Jakku during the reign of the New Republic. Heece was used to living on worlds with higher atmospheric pressures and temperatures than Jakku, so Jakku seemed quite pleasant to Heece. Heece wore brown robes with a hose that supplied processed atmosphere. During the year 34 ABY, Heece was in the Niima Outpost waiting in a line to sell junk to the junk boss Unkar Plutt shortly before the outpost was partially razed by First Order TIE/fo fighters in an unrelated mission.
Athgar Heece was a member of the Dybrinthe species from the Deep Core moon of Dybrin 12 who operated as a bounty hunter during the reign of the New Republic. Heece operated on the desert planet Jakku, and as Dybrinthe are accustomed to higher pressures and atmospheric conditions, Heece was one of Jakku's few visitors who found the world's atmosphere pleasant.
During the year 34 ABY, Heece was present in Niima Outpost. Alongside another Dybrinthe, Heece stood in a line to sell junk to the outpost's Crolute junk boss Unkar Plutt. An Abednedo and the human scavenger Rey stood in line ahead of Heece. While dealing with Rey, Plutt offered a lucrative trade deal for Rey's recently acquired droid BB-8. When Rey refused, Plutt angrily closed his shop, barring Heece from seeing the junkboss.
