Bothan Buff was a famous painting created by the legendary artist Bahzel. Copies of it were available in the galaxy sometime after the Battle of Yavin during the Galactic Civil War. It depicted a Bothan male looking off to stage right with a semi-transparent blue and white sunburst pattern superimposed over him. Overall, the painting's style was similar to Bothan Beauty, another well known work by Bahzel.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit


Early concept art for a male Bothan, similar to the one used in the painting

Bothan Buff is a painting that appears in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies developed by Sony Online Entertainment. It can be used in the player character's personal home as decoration. It was made obtainable by players of the game in the Hotfix 17.10 game update on October 7, 2010 as part of the "rare loot system," which allows players to obtain exceedingly rare items as loot from any enemy in the game.

The artwork for the painting had existed in the game's files for some time before this, however, and was an edited version of the male Bothan concept art for the game.[2][3]
