"It would have been a cruel revelation for the boys and girls of a century ago to learn that the intrepid Sector Ranger Novan Nune almost certainly never existed — much less followed the colonists kidnapped on Parcovey Minor to the dreaded arenas of Affavan, deep in Hutt Space, fought as a gladiator to win their freedom, and then returned to destroy the Hutt kajidic that had ravaged their world."
―Albegron mentions Nune[src]

Novan Nune was a fictional Sector Ranger character who featured in the holodrama True Tales of the Ancient Republic in Episode XXIV: Death on the Rim, which aired in 114 BBY. Nune starred as the shows protagonist, following a group of colonists kidnapped by Hutts on the planet Parcovey Minor to the planet Affavan where the ranger fought in gladiatorial combat to win their freedom. The colonists and Nune then took vengeance on the Kajidic that responsible for the kidnapping, with Nune at one point fighting the Hutt Huska in single combat. While Huska and Nune were not real, the shows story was based on the actions of the Belasco Free Volunteers after the real assault on Parcovey Minor, a slave raid backed by the Utoradii kajidic of Hutts. The character was mentioned by Thunys Albegron, Academician of Popular Studies, when Albegron spoke concerning the episode at the 6 ABY Conference on Popular Entertainment.[1]
