Chall Bekan was a methane-breathing male Morseerian leader who had ties to the Imperial government on the planet Tatooine. He maintained a network of alien agents to keep an eye on the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the crime lord Jabba the Hutt.


The Force attuned Morseerian male Chall Bekan served as a leader. He had connections to the Galactic Empire's government on the planet Tatooine.[1] Bekan maintained a network of alien agents,[2] which he used to keep surveillance on both[1] the crime lord[3] Jabba the Hutt and on the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[1]

Personality and traitsEdit

Chall Bekan was a methane breather.[1] Typical of his species,[4][5] he wore an environment suit and a breath mask,[1] the latter of which provided a supply of methane[6] necessary for a Morseerian to breathe in methane-poor environments.[7]

Behind the scenesEdit

Chall Bekan was created by 1998's "Official Tournament Sealed Deck" of Decipher's Star Wars Customizable Card Game. His in-game abilities also included being "Force-attuned," a gameplay ability that is a step down from being "Force-sensitive" and significantly less than a Jedi/Dark Jedi character.[1] In the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, there were two Morseerians in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina on Tatooine,[8] one of whom was later identified as Nabrun Leids.[9] The other Morseerian, however, has yet to be given a name.

Although Chall Bekan's card reveals that he was working on Tatooine,[1] no canon source has clarified whether he was the second Morseerian from the film.

Chall Bekan's name is an anagram of the last name of Decipher game playtester Chuck Kallenbach.[10]
