|Bron Burs's species|
Horny spines on their faces
A sentient species existed during the Galactic Civil War. Their anatomy consisted of a head and torso, eyes on the top of their heads, and horny spines on the back of their faces. They had a beaklike nose, which had an opening for the mouth, and had nostrils between their eyes, as well as two horns on either side of the mouth. Bron Burs was a male member of the species who hailed from the southern part of the planet Nentan. He was a commando for the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War, who eventually left the profession.
Biology and appearanceEdit
The sentient species' anatomy included a head and a torso. One member of the species had green skin, white eyes on the top of his head, and horny spines on the back of his face. His nostrils were located in between his eyes, and were on top of a beaklike nose which included an opening for the mouth, each side of which was surrounded by a horn. His head was flatter than it was tall, and went into concentric semi-circles in the back.
Society and cultureEdit
Bron Burs was a Force-attuned male individual of the species hailing from the southern part of the planet Nentan. During the Galactic Civil War, a conflict between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire, Burs was a commando in the Alliance, though he eventually left the profession. A crack shot who liked to be on his own, Burs was an on-and-off partner of Debnoli, an expert marksman.
Behind the scenesEdit
The origins of this species date back to the production stages of 1983's Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi film. A number of alien maquettes were designed for the scenes taking place in Jabba the Hutt's palace. Among the ones scrapped before the film's release was a maquette described as "a possible elephant/ rhino head." In 1998, the Star Wars Customizable Card Game's Special Edition Limited set released the "Bron Burs" card, which depicted a manipulated image of the maquette superimposed in front of an artificial background.
