Corellian sand panthers, also known as just sand-panthers, were a feline species native to the planet Corellia. The engineers of Coronet Arms based the design of the Mark V "Sand Panther" hunting rifle on an ancient rifle used to hunt sand-panthers. The Imperial pilot Tana Chellaine believed that her squadmate Huck Trompo had impulse control similar to that of a sand-panther in heat.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Corellian sand panther was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon as just a sand-panther in the short story "Last Call at the Zero Angle", which was written by Jason Fry and published in Star Wars Insider 156 in 2015. They were then fully identified as Corellian sand panthers in the 2019 Fantasy Flight Games roleplaying supplement Gadgets and Gear. The species originated in Star Wars Legends, where it was first mentioned in the short story Skin Deep: The Fat Dancer's Tale by A. C. Crispin, which was published in the Tales from Jabba's Palace anthology in 1996.
