The Bomodons were a sentient species, native to the planet Bomodon in the Churba sector of the Mid Rim. In 0 BBY, a number of Bomodon bounty hunters were present on Tatooine and were witnessed by the Rodian bounty hunter Greedo entering Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina in Mos Eisley.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Bomodons 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. This story was later illustrated as the webstrip A Hunter's Fate: Greedo's Tale; however, no unidentified alien species appear in the background of the cantina scenes. They received a homeworld in The Essential Atlas, published by Del Rey in 2009.

- ↑ 3.0 3.1 Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Bomodon appears to be one such case. "I wouldn't get your hopes up re alien homeworlds, beyond simple stuff like the Planetnamian species getting a Planetnamia on the map or things Dan and I can account for with a relatively quick reference."
