"I'm looking for someone who doesn't ask questions to find me an osteo fragmenter. I'll trade you a nice bit of shiny red armor in exchange for one."
―Heece's messages an individual interested in helping[src]

Athgar Heece was a male Dybrinthe bounty hunter who operated in the Niima Outpost on the desert planet Jakku during the reign of the New Republic. Heece was used to living on worlds with higher atmospheric pressures and temperatures than Jakku, so Jakku seemed quite pleasant to Heece. Heece wore brown robes with a hose that supplied processed atmosphere.

During the year 34 ABY, Heece was in the Niima Outpost waiting in a line to sell junk to the junk boss Unkar Plutt shortly before the outpost was partially razed by First Order TIE/fo fighters in an unrelated mission. Heece later made a posting in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu looking for someone to help locate an osteo fragmenter. A traveler agreed to help and Heece transfered them a set of Elite Praetorian Guard armor after the job was completed.

"Perfect. I'd try finding one in a crate near Savi's Workshop."
―Heece messages a traveler about finding a fragmenter[src]

Athgar Heece (far left) waits in line to sell junk to Unkar Plutt

Born in around 0 ABY,[2] Athgar Heece was a male member of the Dybrinthe species[4] from the Deep Core moon of Dybrin 12[1] who operated as a bounty hunter during the reign of the New Republic. Heece operated on the desert planet Jakku, and as Dybrinthe are accustomed to higher pressures and atmospheric conditions, Heece was one of Jakku's few visitors who found the world's atmosphere pleasant.[3]

During the year 34 ABY, Heece was present in Niima Outpost. Alongside another Dybrinthe, Heece stood in a line to sell junk to the outpost's Crolute junk boss Unkar Plutt. An Abednedo and the human scavenger Rey stood in line ahead of Heece. While dealing with Rey, Plutt offered a lucrative trade deal for Rey's recently acquired droid BB-8. When Rey refused, Plutt angrily closed his shop, barring Heece from seeing the junkboss.[5]

Later in the day, Heece was still in the settlement when the Niima Outpost was partially destroyed by First Order TIE/fo fighters when they gave chase to Rey in their own attempt to capture BB-8.[5] Following the outbreak of the war between the First Order and the Resistance, Heece made a posting in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu requesting someone who would ask no questions find an osteo fragmenter, which were considered "off-limits". In exchange the Dybrinthe offered up a rare set of Elite Praetorian Guard armor. A traveler visiting Batuu agreed to help, so Heece directed them to search near Savi's Workshop. After the traveler successfully located the fragmenter, Heece messaged them thanks and sent them the armor.[4]

Personality and traits[]

Athgar Heece was a tall individual who wore elaborate headgear while on Jakku which Heece wore to improve his breathing while away from Heece's homeworld.[3]

Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 Star Wars: Aliens of the Galaxy
  2. 2.0 2.1 Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire begins concurrent with the events of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, then jumps four months ahead to the Resistance establishing its presence on Batuu, and concludes with an epilogue set several weeks later, when the First Order occupies the planet and the Battle of Batuu begins. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is also set during the occupation of Batuu and depicts the Battle of Batuu via the attraction Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. The Star Wars Book dates the Battle of Batuu to 34 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 34 ABY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary also places the Battle of Batuu six months after The Force Awakens, which Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. Therefore everything within Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and any related tie-in media depicting the Battle of Batuu, or set between The Force Awakens and the battle, must also occur in 34 ABY. GalaxysEdgeLogoMini.png Star Wars: Galaxy's EdgeStar Wars: Datapad states that Athgar Heece was 34 years old during the events of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, meaning he was born in around 0 ABY.
