Behind the scenesEdit

Farlstendoiro

Farlstendoiro

Star Wars Starfighter: Crossbones was supposed to include only alien characters; author Ramón F. Bachs was explicitly asked not to include any Humans. However, he convinced the rest of the team to include one Human as a background character in the cantina. That Human was a caricature of Star Wars fan Skippy Farlstendoiro, who has met Bachs many times usually disguised as a Mon Calamari. As such, "Farlstendoiro" appeared next to a Mon Calamari. Furthermore, two other humans appear in the first issue: Vana Sage (in a hologram) and Adi Gallia, although Adi Gallia may have still been considered a near-Human at the time of the comics' printing, as that was her (inaccurate) designation in the The New Essential Guide to Characters.
