"Passive-aggressive apex predator. Wonderful."
―Chelli Aphra[src]

Defels were a sentient species whose members had the ability to become almost invisible by bending light around themselves. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, a Defel named Arleil Schous was a patron of Chalmun's Cantina when Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived in search of transport to Alderaan. Glahst Ombra was a Defel mercenary who worked with Chelli Aphra until she was killed and skinned by Magna Tolvan.

Biology and appearanceEdit

"Got that creepy shadow aura trick going on with the fur."
―Chelli Aphra, on Glahst Ombra's hiding ability[src]

Defels were a sentient species with brown fur, two red eyes, sharp teeth, and two elongated ears, pointed upwards. They had two sexes, male[4] and female.[3] Defels had the ability to bend light around themselves to become practically invisible. Elderly Defel, however, tended to lose that ability.[1] Defels had a good sense of smell, being able to scent at least a molecule of blood from six miles away.[3] They could feast on sentient species, but preferred the meat liquified.[5]

Defels in the galaxyEdit

"Aren't these guys like a movable buffet for you?"
"Only if you like your meat served liquified."

The Defel mercenary Glahst Ombra

Arleil Schous was a male Defel fortune hunter who visited Chalmun's Cantina in 0 BBY, when Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived in search of a pilot who could take them to Alderaan.[2] Glahst Ombra was a female Defel mercenary who was hired by the Son-tuul Pride to join Chelli Aphra[3] on a mission to Skako Minor, where she was killed and skinned by the Imperial Lieutenant-Inspector Magna Tolvan.[5]
