Biography

A young Wuher.
"Bartenders in these sorts of places, frequented by different and unique biochemistries, were more xenoalchemists than simple pourers of drinks."
―Wuher

As a child, Wuher lead a harsh life as an abandoned orphan living in Mos Eisley. As he grew he began to tinker with his chemistry kit, and developed a taste for interesting drinks which eventually lead him to bartending correspondence school. He was rejected by most people, and he witnessed the cold-blooded assassination of a Shi'ido by Aurra Sing in 27 BBY[4]. His childhood gave rise to his overly gruff, sour attitude.

Later in life, Wuher was one of two bartenders at Chalmun's Cantina. The other bartender that he shared the role with was Ackmena, a female Human. It was here that he developed a dislike toward droids and gained a certain satisfaction from removing them from the cantina. He claimed this was mainly due to the fact that they took up space in the Cantina and did not require refreshment, but in fact he admitted only to himself, that droids were the only creatures he felt truly comfortable removing because he knew he could offend no one by asking.[2] At some point his EPT-212 droid detector was stolen by a Jawa trader named Dathcha. Wuher had hired a spacer to recover the detector, and when it was brought back, he promised the spacer an unlimited amount of free drinks in the cantina.[5]

As bartenders and bioalchemists went, Wuher was a genius. In a profession of serving drinks to an array of differing creature's and their biochemistry, simple humans were often distrusted with the ability to serve drinks safely. However his knowledge of chemicals was exceptional, particularly when it applied to what substances are toxic, or merely intoxicating, to alien species. He was an expert at mixing the proper substances together to provide the most pleasant neurochemical reactions in his patrons. His most popular drinks were Blue milk, Juri juice, and Sarlacc kicker.

Despite his personality, Wuher fostered a dream beneath his grizzly shell. He longed to make a signature drink that would earn him fame and wealth from Jabba the Hutt. Working in the cantina's basement with an elaborate chemistry kit, Wuher worked daily, mixing all of Jabba's favorite drinks in perfect portions in an attempt to produce an elixir, a perfect liqueur suited exactly to the taste buds of Jabba. He imagined that one day the wealth this drink would provide would allow him to leave the detestable planet of Tatooine.[2]

Wuher, working in his cantina.

On the fateful day that Luke Skywalker met Han Solo a 0 BBY, he had served Luke a glass of water. The fight between Doctor Cornelius Evazan, Ponda Baba, Luke Skywalker, and Obi-Wan Kenobi happened in front of his eyes. He also served the Bounty Hunter Greedo, and eventually witnessed Han Solo killing Greedo on that very same day. Before these events, Wuher had been working below the cantina on Jabba's perfect drink. Wuher knew he had almost perfected the beverage, but it was slightly lacking. Relying on his exceptional sense of smell, he realised the pheromones Greedo exuded were the final flavour the drink required. Employing his newly found droid C2-R4, he obtained Greedo's corpse and had C2-R4 brew Greedo into the liqueur. Upon tasting, Wuher believed he had finally created Jabba's perfect drink and at the same time, discovered a new-found sense of appreciation for droids.[2]

Sometime later, Wuher found himself in the middle of firefight within his own cantina, when Thuku and a group of his thugs attacked a Rebel operative during a meeting.[6] The street fortune teller known as the Prophetess told Wuher that he was the reincarnation of Cedo Partu, the original builder of the cantina. After hearing of this, Wuher banned the Prophetess from entering the cantina.[7]

Wuher knew Mirax Terrik well and developed a little "game" with her whereby he would point out to troublemakers that she was the daughter of Booster Terrik. They played this trick during the Bacta War, on an occasion when Corran Horn and Mirax visited the cantina on their way to Huff Darklighter's estate.

Behind the scenes

Wuher was portrayed by British actor Ted Burnett in A New Hope. However, his dialog was replaced by another actor's voice.

Wuher was only known as "The Bartender" at the time of the film's release. The Mos Eisley Adventure Set first identified the bartender as "Cedo Partu," but the name never stuck, and the character was later renamed as "Wuher."[8]

Pablo Hidalgo created a retcon in Star Wars Insider 91 to acknowledge the old name—establishing Cedo Partu as a separate character, and The Prophetess's claim that Wuher was the reincarnated soul of Cedo Partu.

In the audio dramatization of Nightlily: The Lovers' Tale, Wuher was voiced by Steve Winfield.
