Erkas Andrakles was a male astrocartographer during the time of the New Republic. After being expelled from the Grand Astrocartographic Institute, he found work as an astrocartographer for several large corporations before setting out on his own. Andrakles claimed to have found a crashed ship on the planet J't'p'tan, which was made of a coral-like substance, and was of organic nature. Years later, it was assumed that Andrakles' ship was a coralskipper, once used by Yuuzhan Vong scout.
