Biology and appearanceEdit
Bloggins were avians with eyestalks and long tails. Their eyestalks let them see predators from a long distance. However, their tendency to panic, run around in a circle squawking, and failing to fly away left them with little choices.
They traveled in flocks and provided food for several of the local villagers. Bloggins regarded whatever land they were occupying as exclusively theirs and responded negatively to interlopers, protectively pecking at other beings that traveled through it. Their oil was used in lamps by the villagers of Tuanul. Additionally, the villagers raised them for meat and feathers. Rey also used bloggin-leather on the strap of her quarterstaff.
The astromech droid BB-8 encountered several bloggins on the Tuanul settlement during its secret mission on the planet about thirty years after the Battle of Endor. They pecked at him as he passed, but BB-8 rolled around and avoided them.
Behind the scenesEdit
