This article is about the Ryloth predator. You may be looking for the Tatooine sand demon, which lacked tentacles.


The lylek was the most dangerous predator indigenous to the planet of Ryloth, one of the few creatures able to survive in the harsh Bright Lands.

AnatomyEdit

Lylek RS11BT3

A seemingly-deadly battle with a virtual reality lylek

Lyleks were tall beasts protected by a thick exoskeleton and armed with sharp, spear-footed limbs, powerful jaws, and overpowering tentacles.

Few creatures were able to survive on the stifling, arid surface of Ryloth; the lyleks were aggressive and deadly and preyed on each other when no other food source was available. They were known to crawl deeply into the inhabited caves and threaten city dwellers. Inhabited caverns and underground cities were protected by blast doors and traps to prevent lylek attacks.

In addition to their viciousness and strength, the lyleks' tail tentacle was also tipped with a poisonous barb. The poison itself was not deadly, but it was disabling enough to prevent most creatures from escaping.

"The terrifying, bloodthirsty monster known as the lylek is named after my wife Kelly. Errrr… Wait, that came out wrong…"
―Dan Wallace[src]

Author Daniel Wallace named this creature by rearranging the letters in the name of his wife, Kelly.[1]
