Mendel Douglas was a famous game hunter[2] who once journeyed across the Centrality region planet Douglas III to acquire the hide of the elusive[1] and rare[2] jackelope.[1] Douglas succeeded in catching his quarry,[3] which made it back for his collection, but Douglas himself did not. The Douglas system and its third planet were thus named after the late hunter.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Mendel Douglas was first mentioned in the 2001 roleplaying article A Campaign Guide to the Centrality, written by Michael Kogge for Star Wars Gamer 5. Kogge's article expanded on lore originally created by author L. Neil Smith for the[1] 1983[4] The Lando Calrissian Adventures novel series,[1] which first mentioned the planet Douglas III.[5]

According to Star Wars Insider 145, Smith cannibalized the names of colleagues to create names for Douglas III and other subjects from the series.[6] In popular culture, twentieth-century taxidermist Douglas Herrick is credited with creating the American jackalope—a legendary animal with a jackrabbit's body and the antlers of a pronghorn antelope—which developed into a popular attraction in Herrick's hometown of Douglas, Wyoming, where jackalope hunting licenses are sold.[7]
