"Ah, perfect. A Batuuan. I'm looking to buy an old X-34 landspeeder. I need it for parts. I head there's one at Black Spire Station, could you help me make sure it's the right one?"
―Marak messages a traveler on Batuu[src]

Davan Marak was a humanoid scavenger who spent time in Niima Outpost on the planet Jakku in 34 ABY, just as it came under attack from the First Order. The scavenger later posted a job listing in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu asking for someone to verify that there was an X-34 landspeeder at Black Spire Station.

BiographyEdit

Davan Marak was a scavenger[1] who was active in Niima Outpost on the desert planet Jakku.[2] In the year 34 ABY,[3] Marak was approaching Niima on foot when the outpost came under attack by the First Order military faction, who were searching for the astromech droid BB-8.[2]

Between 34 ABY and 35 ABY[4] during the war between the First Order and the Resistance, Marak came to need a X-34 landspeeder for parts and learned that such a vehicle could be found at Black Spire Station in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. The scavenger made a posting on the job board in the outpost and messaged an interested party asking them to check that the speeder at the station was of the right make. After Marak's contact confirmed the model of the vehicle, the scavenger messaged them thanks and one hundred credits.[5]

Personality and traitsEdit

Marak was a dark-skinned humanoid.[1]

EquipmentEdit

Marak wore a scavenger's apron over a black shirt along with white boots and a sun-shielding sedge hat.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Davan Marak first appeared in the 2015 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens.[2] The character was not identified in the film, but received a name in Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary, a reference book written by Pablo Hidalgo[1] and released in conjunction with the film.[6] Despite Marak clearly being shown to have dark skin in the dictionary, the LEGO model for the character in the non-canon video game LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has fair skin. The character's clothing is also far lighter in color.[7]
