Elves were a sentient species of small, winged humanoids with gray skin, broad heads and pointed ears. A number of elves were in the employ of the crime lord Papa Toren. Those individuals would translate Toren's otherwise unintelligible mumbles to his discussion partners and, if necessary, protect him from harm.


Elves[2] were a species of small, winged humanoids with gray skin, broad heads and pointed ears. They could converse in Galactic Basic and the alien crime lord Papa Toren's language.[1]

Elves in the galaxyEdit

At least two elves served the crime lord Toren during the Imperial Era[1] and the New Republic Era.[3] One of these elves was killed when the gravity shield at Megalox prison collapsed, causing him to crash to the ground.[4]

Elves first appeared along with Papa Toren first issue of the Marvel comic book miniseries Star Wars: Lando, which was written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Alex Maleev.[1] They made their next appearance in the fifth issue of the comic book series Star Wars: Poe Dameron, also written by Soule, with art by Phil Noto.[5] Although the species' name was not revealed in either story, Soule has revealed that he calls those creatures "elves" in his scripts.[2]
