Edmo Ectacle was a Moldwarp male with gray hair and brown skin. In 34 ABY, Ectacle was in the Canto Casino in the city of Canto Bight and watched other patrons play at the game tables before speaking with Derla Pidys on one of the casino's balconies.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Edmo Ectacle was a Moldwarp male who was born on[1] the planet[4] Lespectus[1] around 22 BBY.[2] In 34 ABY,[5] he was present in the Canto Casino within the city of Canto Bight on the planet Cantonica.[3] While in the casino, Ectacle spent time at the game tables and watched[6] the Suerton Thodibin[3] playing at one. The Moldwarp then moved out onto one of the casino's balconies, which overlooked a fathier race taking place on the Canto Bight racetrack. While on the balcony, Ectacle spoke with[6] the liquor trader Derla Pidys[3] while the Resistance agents Finn and Rose Tico watched the race nearby.[6]

During the First Order occupation of the planet Batuu[1] in 34 ABY,[2] the pirate Hondo Ohnaka had obtained a stolen identity profile of Ectacle, who was fifty-six years old at the time. Ohnaka sent the profile, along with several others, to the datapad of individuals interested in joining a potential flight crew that he was putting together for a job with Ohnaka Transport Solutions. The pirate had the individuals memorize details from the profile and then quizzed them on the information.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

"Cantina Aliens 37A"

Edmo Ectacle first appeared in the 2018 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi,[6] and was first named in the reference book Star Wars: The Last Jedi: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by Pablo Hidalgo and released alongside the film.[3] The character was portrayed by creature and droid performer Tom Wilton, who described the costume as easy to see out of and breathe in. Finishing touches were added to the costume by Kati Hood,[7] and concept art of Ectacle, titled "Cantina Aliens 37A," was produced by creature concept designer Jake Lunt Davies for the film.[8]

In the film's deleted scenes, Ectacle can be seen cheering at one of the gaming tables.[6] Wilton has said that director of photography Steve Yedlin selected Ectacle out of a lineup to appear in another shot that ultimately did not make it into the film. In that shot, Ectacle climbs out from under a table after Canto Casino was wrecked by escaped fathiers. He then walks to the center of the room and surveys the damage before shaking his head.[9]
