Garollian ghost vipers were creatures[1] native to a location within the Garollia system[2] of the Expansion Region's Baroli sector.[3] The ghost vipers had tongues that they could move rapidly. While engaged in a lightsaber duel against the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi during the Separatist attack on the planet Coruscant[1] in 19 BBY,[4] Count Dooku mentally compared Kenobi's lightsaber attacks to the quick movement of a ghost viper's tongue.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Garollian ghost viper was first mentioned in the 2005 novelization of the film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, which was written by Matthew Stover.[1]

Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. This article treats the Garollia system as the location of one such homeworld with regard to the Garollian ghost viper species.
