Jaschco Phurus was a human male pirate who prowled the Arrowhead Region of the galaxy east of the planet Coruscant. Around thirty years after the Battle of Endor, Phurus was standing next to the wall opposite the entrance to Maz Kanata's castle on the planet Takodana when the smuggler Han Solo entered with the scavenger Rey, the former stormtrooper Finn and the astromech droid BB-8. Shortly after their entrance, many of the castle's patrons, Phurus included, rushed outside to witness the destruction of the Hosnian system by the First Order's Starkiller Base superweapon, after which First Order forces attacked and destroyed Kanata's castle.
