- "I mean, we might even have worked with him directly—Dashades all look alike to me."
Dashades were a hulking reptilian sentient species. Two Dashades, Maliss and Sorath, worked as pirates. They were hired to run a mobile way station as part of Grand Admiral Balanhai Savit's scheme to capture freighters carrying vital components for Project Stardust. When the Grysks attacked the station, both Maliss and Sorath charged in to attack, and Maliss was killed. During the war between the First Order and the Resistance, a Dashade was present on the Wayward Comet refueling station, and got into a fight with the Resistance member Finn.
