"Sky burial?"
"On Jelucan, sir, we put our dead in open cairns at high altitude. Birds devour the body, taking both the flesh and the soul of the deceased into the sky with them, forever."
―Captain Ronnadam and Lieutenant Commander Ciena Ree[src]

Sky burial was a funeral rite in which a deceased person was put in an open cairn at high altitude, where birds would devour the corpse. It was practiced on Jelucan, a planet of the Outer Rim Territories. Captain Ronnadam, a member of the Galactic Empire's Security Bureau, regarded that practice as barbaric.[1]
