- "I just do odds and ends things. Sew, knit, perform surgeries..."
"Not too often, but it does come up. Everyone figures, since I knit and crotche, I'd be good with patients on the operating table."
"Wow, I'm glad I'm not sick!"
- ―Newin Seedel and a spacer
Newin Seedel was a Human Meatlump who operated out of their hideout in Coronet City on the planet Corellia during the time of the Galactic Civil War. Seedel was an avid knitter, often times sewing together various items, while sometimes performing surgeries for gang members. Sometime following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, Seedel sewed together several dolls resembling members of the Meatlump Gang, including the Meatlump King himself.
Behind the scenesEdit
Newin Seedel was a non-player character in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, a massively multiplayer online-role playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts, prior to its closure on December 15, 2011. During each server reset, Seedel's gender and appearance was randomized, but Seedel consistently appeared as a Human.
By switching the first letters in Seedel's first and last name, the name appears like Sewin Needel, similar in spelling to sewing needle. This would appear to be a reference to the fact that Newin Seedel's primary function was to sew things together.
