Frigosians were a sentient species that were native to the planet Tansyl 5. Small for the average humanoid, they had sensitive eyes that meant they had to wear goggles to protect them from the light in certain environments. The Frigosian Opeepit was a janitor on the Colossus platform, while the Frigosians Thromba and Laparo were cryptosurgeons working at Maz Kanata's castle.

Frigosians were a sentient species hailing from the planet Tansyl 5. They had dome-shaped heads as wide as their shoulders and were covered in a thick layer of fluffy yellowish hair. By humanoid standards, they were regarded as short-sized. Although their fur usually concealed it, they had a large mouth filled with dagger-like teeth.
A nocturnal species, the Frigosians had sensitive eyes, and, in certain environments, they were forced to wear heavy black goggles to protect them from the light. On worlds such as Takodana and Castilon, the atmosphere was so different from that of Tansyl 5 that Frigosians had to use breathing apparatuses. They had a language of their own, which consisted in series of chirps.

Behind the scenesEdit
The Frigosian species first appeared in "The Face of Evil", a short story written by Landry Q. Walker as part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a multi-media campaign leading up to the release of the film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens later that year in 2015. They then appeared as minor characters in the film itself.
