Danz Borin[2] was a light-skinned, brown-haired human who spent time in[1] Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina in Mos Eisley spaceport on the desert planet Tatooine[3] in 0 BBY.[4] While in the cantina, Borin wore a white flight suit with a sealed white helmet and was stood by a wall speaking to another individual in a space suit when the local moisture farmer Luke Skywalker entered the cantina with the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and the droids R2-D2 and C-3PO.[1]

Borin then moved toward the bar, cup in hand, before sitting down in one of the booths with a different space suited-individual behind a Morseerian and the Rodian[1] Neesh.[5] When Skywalker and Kenobi later got into an altercation with the criminals Doctor Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba at the bar, Borin and the other suited individual stood and looked in their direction.[3]
