The Sarkans were a species of sentient, egg-laying reptiles.[1] They had broad, tapered snouts,[2] and grouped themselves in family units called egg-broods.[1]

A turban-wearing, pipe-smoking Sarkan[2] known as Melas[3] attended Chalmun's Cantina in Mos Eisley when Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first met Han Solo and Chewbacca.[2] At the time of the New Republic's emergence, a Sarkan named Vinthar was part of Eleodie Maracavanya's pirate crew.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

A Sarkan first appeared as a puppet shot and edited into the cantina footage for the Special Edition of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope in 1997. The new creature, Melas, replaced the Defel Arleil Schous. The Sarkan puppet was actually the same puppet used for Ketwol the Pacithhip, except turned around: the back of Ketwol's head became the Sarkan' face, while Ketwol's trunk and tusks were concealed by the Sarkan's turban.[4]
