Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Caf Treblanc first appeared as an uncredited Rebel extra seen during the award ceremony honoring the Heroes of Yavin at the end of 1977's Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope film. In June 2012, the character was named by "Rogues Gallery," a feature published in Star Wars Insider 133. At least one other character in the Star Wars universe shared Treblanc's surname. Romeo Treblanc was the name given via Hyperspace's "What's The Story?" feature to a character seen in the prequel trilogy films Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, respectively. However, it has not been canonically established if the two characters had any relation with each other.
