- "You know this is no place for a child."
- ―Gor Koresh speaks to Din Djarin
Gor Koresh was a male Abyssin who, while at a fighting match, encountered the bounty hunter Din Djarin and the Child during the reign of the New Republic. Djarin told Koresh that he was looking for information on other Mandalorians in the galaxy. Koresh attempted to make Djarin gamble for the information and expressed interest in acquiring his beskar armor, but when Djarin refused, Koresh and several other assailants raised their blasters and surrounded him. However, Djarin used his whistling birds to incapacitate most of the attackers, and as Koresh fled, finished off the rest of his assailants. As Koresh fled outside, he was apprehended by Djarin and hung by his ankles to a light post. After being interrogated, he told Din Djarin that a Mandalorian could be found on Tatooine, swearing this information to be true by the Droid Gotra. Djarin then left him hanging and shot out the light post, allowing several local creatures to advance on him. Djarin left with Koresh pleading with him and screaming in fear.
