Portuguese men-o'-war were creatures that bore a distinct physical resemblance to the Oswaft, given both species' shared attributes of tentacular ribbons hanging from their ventral sides and the perfect glassy transparency, with hints and flashes of inner color, of their bodies.

Behind the scenesEdit

"He was large for a young adult, although there were Elders of his species twice his size and mass. An alien observer in a different place and time would have pointed out his resemblance to an enormous manta ray-broad and streamlined, powerfully winged, and somehow pleasingly sinister. His sleek dorsal surface was domed high with muscle. Others would have been reminded of the Portuguese man-o'-war, seeing the spectacular ribbons hanging from his ventral side, marveling at the perfect glassy transparency of his body with its hints and flashes of inner color."
Lando Calrissian and the Starcave of ThonBoka[src]

This quote is the only mention of the Portuguese man-o'-war, but it is not clear if it was meant to be out-of-universe or not.

In Part 2 of Barely Tolerable: Alien Henchmen of the Empire by Abel G. Peña, the planet Portug was included as a reference to a discussion on the validity of this article on the Star Wars fan wiki Wookieepedia.
