CRILOC Horses were gray-furred, black-eyed domesticated creatures that were used as mounts and beasts-of-burden in desert regions. CRILOC Horses possessed gray skin, clawed limbs, a bushy tail, and short, pointed ears located on the top of its head. The creatures each had a fanged mouth that contained a pink tongue. They could be saddled and mounted by Humans, and were sometimes startled by combat-scout droids. At some point, a CRILOC Horse was ridden by a Human male and was accompanied by the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 in a desert, where they met a combat-scout droid that alarmed and frightened the creature, despite the fact that the droid was not aggressive.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The CRILOC Horse was created by artist Roy Grinnell for the 2010 book Star Wars Art: Visions and the artwork featuring the creature was later included in the Star Wars Blu-ray booklet. Grinnell's artwork was entitled "Wait... the Droid Just Wants to Say Hello". The creature was subsequently named in an interview for the feature, "The Art Side of the Force," which appeared in Star Wars Insider 130, in December of 2011.
