A species of sentient brown furred humanoids inhabited the galaxy during the reign of the Galactic Empire. They had two protruding eyes with horizontally closing eyelids, and several small tentacle-like appendages that surrounded their mouth. The species was capable of speaking Galactic Basic and could breathe unfiltered clouzon-36 gas. An example of this species was the bad-tempered Mining Guild boss Yushyn, who operated an Asteroid Belt Gas Refinery 3 years before the Battle of Yavin.
Behind the scenesEdit
The species first appeared in "The Call," the thirteenth episode in the second season of the Star Wars Rebels television show. The design for the species was based on a piece of alien bounty hunter concept art drawn by Ralph McQuarrie for Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. Concept art of Yushyn for the Rebels episode was produced by artist JP Balmet. The character Pintu who was slated to appear in unfinished The Clone Wars episodes, is of this species.
