Brangus Glee was a Force-sensitive, brown-skinned male member of a dexterous species of renowned travelers. He hailed from Dor Nameth, but had left his homeworld by the time he was considered an elder. During the Imperial Period, Glee was a pilot who traveled the galaxy and frequented spaceports, cantinas, and casinos, gambling when at the latter.[1]

A maquette of "Alien 23"

Brangus Glee's origins date back to the production stages of the 1983 film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, when maquettes of a number of aliens were constructed in preparation for scenes taking place in Jabba the Hutt's Palace. Several of the alien concepts, including a brown-skinned one known among the film's crew as "Alien 23", were scrapped after the maquette stage and not included in the film.[2]

In 1998, the Special Edition Limited expansion set of the Star Wars Customizable Card Game included a card that identified a modified image of the maquette[1][2] as an alien named Brangus Glee and provided some background information on the character. Alien 23 thus became a part of Star Wars canon.[1] According to a Star Wars CCG fan site, Brangus Glee was named as an anagram of "Snuggle Bear."[3]
