Muftak was a male[3] Talz[2] who worked as a pickpocket on the planet Tatooine.[3] He was present in Chalmun's Cantina when the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and the local farm boy Luke Skywalker arrived in search of a pilot to take them to the planet Alderaan. He witnessed the pair enter into an altercation with Doctor Cornelius Evazan and his companion Ponda Baba, which ended with Kenobi dismembering Baba and wounding Evazan with his lightsaber.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

Nicknamed "Spider-Man" on the set because his multiple eyes, Muftak the Talz was built for the booth inserts shot well after the main stage photography for the cantina sequences of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.[5] He was played by mold maker Laine Liska in the film.[6]

According to a 1978 memo, he was originally going to be named "Cullatran," but more than a decade later, the name "Muftak" was applied by the writers of Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.[7] The name has since made its way into canon via the 2015 reference book Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know.[3]
