"Ah, yeah!"
―Dobbu Scay finds what he thinks is a lugjack machine — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

Dobbu Scay was a diminutive amphibian gambler who was present in the Canto Casino on the planet Cantonica in approximately 34 ABY. While inebriated at the casino, he mistook the astromech droid BB-8 for a lugjack machine and began inserting cantocoins into various slots on the droid. BB-8 encouraged Scay to insert more coins until the droid spotted the Master Codebreaker and dashed off to alert his companions Finn and Rose Tico. Scay was later present in the casino when a herd of fathier stampeded through, laughing gleefully as coins cascaded onto the floor around him in the chaos.


Drunk at the casinoEdit

Dobbu Scay and BB-8

Dobbu Scay mistook BB-8 for a lugjack machine.

Shortly after the outbreak of the war between the First Order and the Resistance[2] in approximately the year 34 ABY,[3] Dobbu Scay was on the planet Cantonica in the city of Canto Bight.[2] While there, he became inebriated while gambling in the Canto Casino[4] and approached the astromech droid BB-8 on the casino's floor.[2]

Mistaking the droid for a lugjack machine,[1] Scay inserted one of his stack of cantocoins into a diagnostic slot in BB-8's tool bay. This caused the droid to squawk in shock, but when nothing else happened, Scay squinted[4] then leant against the droid to belch angrily before inserting another coin.[2] BB-8 remained stock still and began beeping encouragingly for Scay to insert more coins. When the gambler did so, the droid warbled happily and flashed the diagnostic light on his head in order to imitate a slot machine, but then made a sad, droopy coo.[4] Scay then inserted a coin into the droid's dataport.[1]

Riches from chaosEdit

Dobbu Scay money pile

When fathiers crashed through the casino, Scay found himself surrounded by cantocoins.

BB-8 eventually left to find his companions Rose Tico and Finn after spotting the Master Codebreaker that they were searching for. The droid later used Scay's coins as projectiles in order to subdue a member[2] of the Canto Bight Police Department.[4]

Scay remained in the casino and was still present when Finn and Tico rode through the building on a herd of fathiers that they had freed. During the chaos caused by the herd, a large amount of cantocoins cascaded from one of the casino's tables onto Scay and the floor around him, causing him to laugh with glee and begin gathering them up.[2]

Personality and traitsEdit

Scay was a male member[1] of a diminutive gray-skinned, bipedal species[2] of amphibian[1] with a flat crest extending from the back of their head. His hair ran down either side of his face and was brown in color, as were his two eyes.[2] Scay was inebriated enough at the casino to mistake a droid for a slot machine, and became frustrated when he did not win any coins from BB-8.[4] He was greatly pleased however when he later found himself surrounded by coins while chaos reigned in the casino around him.[2]


While in the casino, Scay wore a monocle and a black suit and shoes with a gray shirt and a brown sash around his waist.[2]
