Purong was a Ganimed bounty hunter present at Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina in 0 BBY.

Behind the scenesEdit

Purong only appears in the pop-up spread at the end of The Mos Eisley Cantina Pop-Up Book and is drawn to resemble a member of the Advozse species. Another, unidentified Advozse, wearing different clothes, appears on an earlier page gambling with Figrin D'an. It is possible that writers Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta intended this character to be the same species (or even the same character) as Bom Vimdin. Therefore, the species 'Ganimed' (which is not mentioned anywhere else) could possibly be considered the same as the Advozse.
