Dep Aila was a male scientist who lived on the planet Makeb. He was the first scientist to document the amphibian known as the barbed ginx, though he only encountered them by accident—after leaving his landspeeder unattended, he came back to find a small group of ginx had peeled off the vehicle's outer casing in search of food.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Dep Aila was first mentioned in the Codex entry for the barbed ginx in Star Wars: The Old Republic: Rise of the Hutt Cartel, a 2013 Digital Expansion released for the 2011 video game Star Wars: The Old Republic.[1]
