"A Gand findsman can sense your attack even before you strike!"
―Zuckuss, to Beilert Valance[2]

The findsmen (singular: findsman) were a Force-sensitive[3] mystic tradition of the Gand species that dated back centuries before the Galactic Civil War on their fog-shrouded homeworld of Gand. Findsmen were known for their uncanny tracking skills.

When the tradition began to die out on Gand, a Gand known as Zuckuss became one of the first to venture off-world, using his particular talents to become a renowned and highly sought-after bounty hunter.[1]

The findsmen Zuckuss was able to predict the future of Boba Fett,[4] correctly predicting he would would fall into the Sarlaac Pit, even though it wouldn't happen for a while.[source?]

At the time of the Iron Blockade, the findsman Vakk operated in the Anoat sector. Unusual even among his mystically minded peers, Vakk was strictly non-violent, using his skills only to track and discover but never to apprehend or kill.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

Originally appearing unnamed in the 1980 film Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, the findsmen were first identified as such in Galaxy Guide 3: The Empire Strikes Back, a 1989 Star Wars Legends supplement written by Michael Stern for Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.[6] The term became canon when it was utilized in Ultimate Star Wars, a reference book co-written by Patricia Barr, Adam Bray, Daniel Wallace, and Ryder Windham[7] that was released on April 28, 2015.[8]
