Pollux Hax

Cthons were inhabitants of the lowest levels of the Coruscant Underworld. They were zombie-like humanoids who preyed on living flesh.

Their ancestors were Humans who were banished from the surface for their crimes, subsequently residing in the darkness of the undercity for thousands of years, which genetically changed them into terrifying creatures that became the subject of countless horror stories and nightmares.

Visually, they appeared like decaying corpses with loose flaps of flesh, stringy, dirty hair, and a lipless mouth filled with sharp teeth. Skin grew to cover their eyes; there was an egg-like organ where the eye could be seen moving restlessly while sealed within its sockets. If clothed at all, they wore nothing but simple loincloths.

Cthons were also known to use electroshock nets to catch their prey, as demonstrated on Jedi Padawan Darsha Assant and her companions.[1]

Cthons can be said to be the analog of the Tarisian Rakghoul of the Taris Undercity and perhaps may be related to the underlevels' corridor ghouls.


Behind the scenes

Chthonic (from Greek χθόνιος-khthonios, of the earth, from khthōn, earth; pertaining to the Earth; earthy) designates, or pertains to, deities or spirits of the underworld, especially in relation to Greek religion and may be the root of the Cthon species' name.
