Are we sure?Edit

I've been through these books pretty carefully and IIRC they did not specifically say that the lemurlike species depicted in Art of ROTS was in fact supposed to be native to Mygeeto, or that their name was Mygeetans. Is this partly (or wholly) conjectural, or did I miss something? Gonk (Gonk!) 20:51, 18 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Well, I'd remove that template, since the article says that it has been referenced in Star Wars: Complete Locations. Stake black msg 00:26, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
    • The only thing referenced in Complete Locations is the existence of a species named Mygeetans, if I'm not mistaken. These pictures of the lemuroid species come from Art of ROTS and are not specifically called Mygeetans—of this I am nearly positive. I'd check right now, but those books are not available to me at the moment. Gonk (Gonk!) 12:17, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
      • It seems to my that a question to Mr. Tasty here would be appreciated :P 200.152.18.199 16:27, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
        • "Mygeeto's natural crystal towers, once home to a lemurlike species now reduced to the status of slaves, are a stronghold of the InterGalactic Banking Clan." Complete Locations page 113 under heading "Crystal Trap". Note the name "Mygeetan" itself is conjecture, but the species is canon, and the "lemurlike" descriptive secures their identity with the "Lemur People" in the concept art. Note that the Lemur People were at one time conceived of as being on Utapau, but were retconned as being from Mygeeto when it was decided the Utai and Pau'ans were from Utapau (the Pau'ans at least being originally conceived on Mustafar). Quite the shuffle!JustinGann 15:45, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
          • Who retconned them? The authors of Complete Locations? In any case, this is strong evidence indeed, though not completely conclusive. It doesn't specifically state that the lemuroids we have pictured are the same lemuroids. My concern is that something further down the line might negate all this. Suppose, for example, some future WOTC supplement (yeah right) were to take the lemuroid production art and call them Thoomboogians or something. Immediately we will have misled people. However, it's obvious to me that the Complete Locations authors' intent was that their lemuroids would be these lemuroids, so I'm okay with leaving the art on this page. It would be absurdly hardline to insist on removing it. I just hope nobody Official confuses the issue someday... Gonk (Gonk!) 18:04, 5 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Well, assumedly the retcon was originated by the authors of Complete Locations. I would guess Saxton was at work, since he likes canonizing conncept art and cut contentJustinGann 10:48, 19 October 2007 (UTC)
