- ―C-3PO mistakes fyrefliis for someone come to help him.
Fyrefliis were a large insect species of bioluminescent flii native to the planet Kubindi. On their homeworld, which was frequently subject to solar flares, the species could be found within the Silver Forest of Dreams. The protocol droid C-3PO and another member of the Rebel Heroes of Yavin encountered four fyrefliis while lost in the forest in the year 0 ABY, thinking the insects were someone who could help them. When the heroes later left Kubindi in the Millennium Falcon, a YT-1300 light freighter, they saw many fyrefliis lighting up the night sky, thousands of feet above them.
Behind the scenesEdit
Fyrefliis first appeared in Star Wars Missions 6: The Search for Grubba the Hutt, a 1998 novel written by Dave Wolverton as part of the Star Wars Missions series. They later received an entry in the 2008 sourcebook The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia. Neither source makes clear their level of sentience. Which Hero of Yavin met them is also not clear, as the Missions books allows readers to choose one of the heroes to play as.
