Zeltrons were a humanoid sentient species whose skin varied in shades of red. Whenever a Zeltron became angry, his or her skin turned a deeper red. A Zeltron boy served as a youngling in the Jedi Order during the last decades of the Galactic Republic's reign and often sparred with the human youngling Caleb Dume. Lorica Demaris, who joined the Resistance, was a female Zeltron.
Behind the scenesEdit
- "There are many situations where it's better to be matter-of-fact about how cosmopolitan the galaxy is; Skelly's supervisor is a Muun and young Caleb Dume's sparring partner is a Zeltron, but those were both cases where the facts of the characters' species were not really on the point-of-view character's mind."
- ―John Jackson Miller
Zeltrons were first created by Mary Jo Duffy, Kerry Gammill and Tom Palmer for the 1983 Star Wars Legends comic book Star Wars 70: The Stenax Shuffle. They were made canon in 2015, when author John Jackson Miller revealed that an unnamed Jedi youngling in his novel A New Dawn was a Zeltron through the book's production notes, which Miller released on his blog.
