The Caphex were a sentient species that lived in the galaxy during the New Republic Era. They were a humanoid race that had white, wispy hair that grew from the sides of their faces. One Caphex, Seossra Thwisp, worked as a spy for Leia Organa's Resistance during the Cold War with the First Order; she was later stationed at Organa's base on Ajan Kloss prior to the Battle of Exegol.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The Caphex were created for the 2019 film Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker, the final installment of the sequel trilogy. Concept art for the species was drawn by Luke Fisher and featured in the book The Art of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, where they are referred to as "Wizard 71."
The Caphex first appeared in the Celebration Edition update to the 2017 video game Star Wars Battlefront II. The free update was released in the days prior to Episode IX's release and featured content from the upcoming film. In the game, players can take control of the "Caphex spy," a member of the Infiltration class. The spy wields a truncheon for close-quarters combat and has the ability to call down an orbital bombardment on opponents.
