I wanted to bring this up here because I'm unsure what we should do on the article Doodnik for the purposes of a species identification. The character's background has been mostly unknown since he appeared in Star Wars: Droids. The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia has an entry on him, but it does not give his species. The issue raised recently is that Doodnik is mentioned in the Hyperspace article "Dining at Dex's." There, Dex tells us that he is "an old friend of mine from Ojom". Borsk Fey'lya has thus put in his infobox that Doodnik is a Besalisk. There is certainly information to point in that direction, since he has four arms and is from the Besalisk homeworld. But because his appearance is so different from that of the Besalisks, I bring it up here: Is this enough to identify him as a Besalisk? Is this likely the author's intention? Should we remove the species ID since it's possible he's just from the planet without being a Besalisk himself? It's an interesting case, so I wanted to get other people's opinions. ~ SavageBob 01:26, December 21, 2009 (UTC)

  • Because of their obvious similarities, I wanted to imply some kind of connection between Dexter and Doodnik when I was writing this piece. At one point, I think I might have even considered making them brothers, but in the end I decided to leave things more vague. Since Doodnik's species isn't clearly stated in the article, I think the most that can be said is that it's implied that he's a Besalisk. (And, yeah, Doodnik's appearance doesn't exactly match Dexter's, but keep in mind that Threepio and Artoo in the animated series don't exactly match their live-action versions, either!) --Narbflick 12:20, December 26, 2009 (UTC)
    • I was just about to repost Narbflick's comments from tfn here - which is why I asked the question in the first place! :D --Eyrezer 21:48, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
