Melas[2] was a Sarkan patron of Chalmun's Cantina[1] in the year 0 BBY,[3] shortly before the Battle of Yavin. They had mottled gray skin and blue eyes and wore red and tan robes, along with a red turban.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Melas was originally created for the 1997 Special Edition re-release of the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.[1] They were first identified as Melas in Star Wars Trilogy Sourcebook, Special Edition, a 1997 Star Wars Legends sourcebook for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game,[4] which became canon when it was used in Star Wars: Card Trader, an app released on iOS and Android platforms by The Topps Company, Inc. in 2015.[2] Their puppet was a redressing of the one used for the Pacithhip Ketwol.[5] By covering Ketwol's trunk and tusks with a turban and using the back of Ketwol's head as Melas' face, a new creature was made. The new character was shot and edited into the cantina footage, replacing Arleil Schous,[6] whose off-the-shelf canine mask had long bothered A New Hope writer and director George Lucas.[7]
