Del Moomo was a male Ithorian and the brother of Dob. Del always wore a red scarf, while Dob always wore blue. Another noticeable difference between Dob and his brother was a scar across his right eye. He obtained the scar during his childhood when Dob shoved his head into a working trash compactor. During the Mandalorian Wars they worked as bounty hunters (referred to as the Moomo Brothers), although their success rate was low.
At a young age the brothers were expelled from the herd for its own safety.
In 3963 BBY Raana Tey hired them to watch Arvan Carrick on Telerath. The pair grew tired of watching Arvan and instead captured him. They were scolded by Raana Tey later for their incompetence. Del and Dob got into a scuffle afterwards and Del was ordered to watch Arvan while Dob went into a local bar. During this time, Del contacted Raana again. Raana ordered them to leave Telerath immediately and meet with her so they would be able to deal with Arvan.
However, Del learned that Dob was planning on leaving him out of a bounty and while he was distracted Zayne Carrick used telekinesis to throw an object to Del's head. Del believed that Dob was the one who threw it to get rid of him and take the full bounty on both Carrick's head. The two attacked each other when their bounty escaped.
The Taris ResistanceEdit
The Moomo brothers were later hired by Jervo Thalien, the head of Lhosan Industries, to grab Marn Hierogryph off the streets of Chandrila, so they could together to track down Senator Gorravus on Mandalorian-occupied Taris. Thalien also provided them with the location of Zayne Carrick at Omonoth. After meeting up with Gadon Thek's Hidden Beks, Gryph sent Dob and Slyssk to recover Zayne, while he and Del stayed behind on Taris. After Zayne had arrived and was identified as the Padawan killer with the large bounty on his head, Del tried to claim the bounty for himself, attacking Hidden Bek Brejik when he tried to claim the bounty by killing Zayne. After Gryph discovered that Brejik had the children of Taris' constable, Del accompanied his potential bounty and the rest of the Beks through Mandalorian territory to the headquarters of the Taris Resistance. Del rode in the side seat of the speeder piloted by Zayne and Gryph, enthusiastically firing his twin blasters at the Mandalorians below.
Upon arriving at the Resistance's headquarters, Del was angered to see his former employer Raana Tey with them, and even angrier when Raana attempted to use Shel Jelavan to kill Zayne. Raana was equally incensed to see the incompetent bounty hunter again and attacked him, managing to slice Del's blasters in half before yielding to the multiple blasters of the Hidden Beks trained on her and the orders of Senator Gorravus.
Later, when Gryph made contact with Jervo Thalien, Del attempted to claim the bounty on Gorravus, a bounty that seconds later Thalien revealed to have placed. Before Del could eliminate the Senator, however, Raana overheard the conversation and moved in. As she and Del brawled, Thalien revealed that his transmitter was rigged with a bomb. When it failed to detonate, however, Del was delighted to take a look at it due to his affinity for explosives and asked if he could keep it.
When the Resistance later planned to destroy Taris' Jedi Tower in hopes of killing Cassus Fett, Del prepped the remote detonator for the demolition charges. He also set the charges on the tower himself. When it was revealed that Fett had already left the tower and that the Mandalorians had attacked the Resistance headquarters, Del enthusiastically accompanied Brejik back to their base, hoping to get the chance to kill a few more Mandalorians.
When Taris Resistance was ambushed by Cassus Fett, Constable Noana Sowrs paid Del and Dob to take her children to Alderaan. After they completed the task, they returned to pick up Zayne and Gryph from Jebble.
Just as everyone everyone on board, they pledged to help Zayne clear his name and expose the Jedi Covenant. They took their ship to Odryn, where Jarael disguised herself as Celeste Morne and the Moomo Brothers - as muscle hired to carry a crate, supposedly holding the Muur Talisman, but it was actually their laundry hamper - with Zayne and Gryph inside. Once they entered the Sanctum of the Exalted, the Moomos decided to grab all the Sith artifacts they could hold, but Zayne stopped them, reminding that those things were extremely dangerous. But they didn't listen and discreetly stole a significant number of artifacts, which was a lucky break, as shortly after that Feln destroyed the Sanctum believing Zayne's friends were back to raid the Sanctum.
Del and Dob later flew the Moomo Williwaw to Coruscant, where the ship came under fire from the Republic blockade set up there. The ship was intercepted by Lance Squadron and Moomo Brothers opened defensive fire under strict order from Zayne not to shoot anybody. In order to get Zayne past the blockade, Jarael, Del, and Dob flew the ship into the hangar of the Swiftsure where they were promptly taken into custody. This provided the distraction needed to get Zayne, Gryph, and Slyssk down to the planet in another ship. After the end of Vindication, Del and Dob were officially paid by the Republic for bringing Zayne and Gryph in. Thereafter, the Moomos parted ways with Zayne's group once again.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "It's a bomb. I love bombs. I mean, really. You have no idea..."
- ―Del Moomo, to Raana Tey
Just like his brother Dob, Del was obsessed with weapons of all kinds. The brothers never used the same weapons twice, preferring to pull something new out of their collection. Other than his slightly different appearance, Del was also set apart from his brother by his high enthusiasm for explosives, likely one of the few areas he could claim to have extensive knowledge. Thanks to his fondness for them, Del instantly recognized the bomb used by Thalien as an MM-40 Thermal Charge and later set the charges that would blow the Jedi Tower.
Behind the scenesEdit
John Jackson Miller pointed out an inconsistency in the scarfs of Del and Dob Moomo. In Reunion, Part 1, Dob wears a red scarf and has a scar across his eye while Del wears a blue scarf. However, in part 2, Dob wears a green scarf with no scar while Del wears a red one with a scar. Miller confirmed that the brother in the blue scarf is Dob and the one in the red scarf is Del. He mentioned that this would remain consistent should the two appear in future issues. The color of Dob's scarf in part 2 has been corrected in the trade paperback, however, all inconsistencies in the brothers' dialogue have not. Miller stated that in the end, it was just too convoluted to work out, basically telling readers to ignore the features that identify the two in Part 1.
