"I wasn't the one who sent your brother to prison. He sent himself. He shouldn't have been selling contraband."
―Psyrel Capanus, to Phelar University security guards

Psyrel Capanus was a tall, scrawny male scholar working at Phelar University on Eriadu. He had wealth and ambition, and overlooked the faults of the Empire, like most typical citizens of the planet. He was keen to provide references to Phelar University Archive to any visiting scholars, who asked him for it.

In around 0 BBY, Capanus was assaulted by two security guards of the campus. The reasons remained unclear, but it had something to do with one guard's brother dealing contraband. Other scholars noticed the fight, but they feared of getting involved.
