"You owe him an apology."
"I'd rather be digested by a jakobeast."
―Breha and Leia Organa — (audio) Listen (file info)[3]

Jakobeasts were a brown-furred[1] type of animal that inhabited the valleys between mountains on the snow-covered Outer Rim Territories planet Gigor.[2] In 9 BBY,[4] when Princess Leia Organa[3] of the Core World[2] Alderaan was told by her mother, Queen Breha Organa, to apologize to her cousin Niano for insulting him, Leia responded that she would rather be digested by a jakobeast.[3] Navigator Plesko Marno wore a coat with sleeves make of jakobeast-fur while on the planet Kijimi[5] in 35 ABY.[6]

Behind the scenes[]

Jakobeasts were introduced to the current Star Wars canon in the 2018 Star Wars Roleplaying sourcebook Dawn of Rebellion, published by Fantasy Flight Games.[2] Jakobeast-fur later appeared in the 2019 film Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker, the ninth installment of the Skywalker saga films.[1] In the Star Wars Legends continuity, the jakobeast was first introduced in Wizards of the Coast's 2002 Power of the Jedi Sourcebook, written for the Star Wars Roleplaying Game.[7]

  4. "Part I" states that the events of the Obi-Wan Kenobi television series take place ten years after Order 66, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY. Therefore, the events of "Part I" of Obi-Wan Kenobi must be set in 9 BBY.

  6. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary dates the events of Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker as taking place one year after the Starkiller Incident. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Starkiller Incident to 34 ABY, the events of The Rise of Skywalker must take place in 35 ABY.
