During 1.5 ABY, Vardias Tyne, a resident of Anchorhead on Tatooine, killed a bantha that was destroying his vaporators. Unfortunately for Vardias, Brother Chonar and his bantha-worshipping Dim-U monks learned of this, and hired a female Zabrak bounty hunter named Rhalia Jinsari to kill Vardias Tyne.
However, before Rhalia could reach town, she was killed by a spacer who agreed to help Vardias. Despite this, Vardias knew his troubles were not yet over. He knew that the Chonar and the Dim-U would simply send another bounty hunter when they learned of Jinsari's demise. In order to calm down the Dim-U, Vardias had a talented artist sculpt a bantha statue out of a piece of kiliad marble. He tasked the spacer who had helped him earlier with deliving the bantha statue to Chonar, with the hope that they would forgive and forget the killing of the bantha. The spacer agreed, and sought out to find Chonar who was just outside of Anchorhead. When Chonar received the statue, he told the spacer that the statue conveyed the respect for the majestic banthas, and informed the spacer that the Dim-U would no longer pursue Vardias Tyne.
Behind the scenesEdit
Brother Chonar was a Non-Player Character (NPC) in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies. Players who performed a series of quests for Vardias Tyne in Anchorhead had to deliver a bantha statue to Chonar outside of town.
Due to the nature of many older quests in Star Wars Galaxies, the species and appearance of Chonar changed each time a player performed this quest. Therefore, it is impossible to verify the canonical species of Chonar. However, the quest dialogue given by Vardias Tyne indicated that Chonar was a male. Although the player could choose not to do Vardias Tyne's quests, this article assumes 100% game completion.
