Cherff Maota was a male Jedi Master who lived long before the conflict between the First Order and the Resistance. Maz Kanata owned a bust in his image, which she kept in her castle on the planet Takodana.
Behind the scenesEdit
The bust of Cherff Maota was one of the props created for the castle of Maz Kanata in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015). In the movie's novelization, the private collection of Kanata notably includes what is described as "a bust of some unknown bearded human." Maota's bust, however, clearly has non-human features.
