"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 around 34 ABY. While inebriated at the casino, he mistook the Resistance 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 dashed off to rejoin his companions, Finn and Rose Tico. When a herd of fathier later stampeded through the casino, Scay laughed gleefully as coins cascaded onto the floor around him in the chaos.

BiographyEdit

Drunk at the casinoEdit

"A drunk alien in a tuxedo thought you were a slot machine? Fair enough."
―DJ learns about BB-8's encounter with Dobbu Scay[src]
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] circa 34 ABY,[3] Dobbu Scay was on the planet Cantonica in the city of Canto Bight.[2] While gambling in the Canto Casino, he became inebriated[4] and approached the Resistance 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] and leaned 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 before making a sad, droopy coo.[4] Scay then inserted a coin into the droid's dataport.[1]

Riches from chaosEdit

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

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

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 ensuing chaos, 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

"Hmm, mmm. Narlev!"
―Dobbu Scay becomes frustrated with BB-8 and belches — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

Dobbu Scay was a member of a diminutive, gray-skinned, bipedal species[2] of amphibian[1] with a flat crest extending from the back of the head. He had a studded tail that was long enough to reach the ground when he stood. 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 BB-series astromech droid for a slot machine and became frustrated when he did not win any coins from BB-8.[4] However, he was greatly pleased when he later found himself surrounded by coins while chaos reigned in the casino around him.[2]

EquipmentEdit

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