Bonzami were large, four-legged beasts that could be found on Bahryn, one of Geonosis' moons. They had large, axe-shaped jaws, and were resistant to blaster bolts.

Biology and appearance[edit | edit source]

Bonzami were massive, quadrupedal creatures that thrived in frigid temperatures. They had plated spines, razor-sharp teeth, and armored heads with horned mouths. Their bodies were mostly covered in white fur, which allowed them to blend in easily with their gelid environment in spite of their large size.[3] Their hide was resistant to blaster bolts, which made them difficult to kill, although they could be driven away by a high enough rate of fire.[1]

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Bonzami were predators that hunted both alone and in packs.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

A Bonzami on Bahryn

Bonzami could be found on Bahryn, one[1] of fifteen moons[4] that orbited the Outer Rim planet Geonosis.[1] In 3 BBY,[source?] Agent Kallus, a member of the Imperial Security Bureau, and Garazeb Orrelios, an anti-Empire freedom fighter, found themselves trapped together in a cavern on Bahryn after the escape pod they were in crash-landed on the moon. While trying to overcome their enmity and find a way out, the two were attacked by a bonzami, which they successfully fended off using their bo-rifles. Later, two bonzami emerged, but the pair managed to narrowly escape through the hole punched through the cave's ceiling.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Bonzami first appeared in "The Honorable Ones", the fifteenth episode of the second season of the animated television series Star Wars Rebels. The design of their horn and beak was inspired by that of a truck-mounted snowplow, while their name derives from "Zamboni", a brand of machines used to clean and smooth the surface of ice rinks.[5]
