Crix Q5 Baobab was a member of the Baobab family. He taught astronomy and astrography at the Baobab Merchant Marine Academy on Manda. The overall goal of his class was to train students on how to use a Baobab freighter as part of the Baobab Merchant Fleet. His first lesson included a detailed explanation on the different kinds of stars in the galaxy, so that the future pilots would know what they are flying into. Besides supplying information on astronomy and astrography, he also supplied some history lessons regarding some star routes and holdings of the Galaxy's history.
