Arcona were a sentient species of desert-dwelling humanoids that was native to the planet Cona. They lived in family-based communities and were notorious for their addiction to common salt. They also had triangular heads with two large eyes set wide apart,[5] and hands with three or four fingers.[1] During the Clone Wars, an Arcona bounty hunter named El-Les assisted in the training of new clone troopers for the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic.[1] Over twenty years later, shortly before the Battle of Yavin, a brown-skinned Arcona named Hem Dazon lived on Tatooine, where he had become stranded after spending all his money on salt and juri juice.[7]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Arcona first appeared in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, during the cantina scene.[3] Hem Dazon, the Arcona seen in the cantina, was realized as a simple puppet with illuminated eyes. Because of the shape of the creature, its production nickname was "T-head."[8]
