The kallil-virus was a virus distinguished by the way in which it clumped together as a jelly-like mass.[1] It was notorious for the way that it trembled when touched. When activated, an orb of spores made from the malvil-tree Malubi, used by a bounty hunter named Boba Fett[2] in 19 BBY,[3] produced a substance that trembled like the virus.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The kallil-virus was mentioned in the 2004 young reader novel Boba Fett: A New Threat by Elizabeth Hand,[2] set between the chronologically second and third Star Wars films.[3] Within the context of that novel, exactly what kind of thing the kallil-virus was was ambiguous,[2] but, in 2008, The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia included an entry on the subject that identified it definitively as a virus.[1]
