Behind the scenes

The name of this species was created by Bob Vitas as part of the What's the Story campaign on[3]

The species was named after the Hamadryas baboon;[5] in turn, the name derives from Hamadryads, tree nymphs (a subcategory of dryads) from the Greek mythology.

As revealed in his Star Wars Blog, Bob Vitas intended that the Hamadryas species to be from a planet called "Papio".[5]
