The Kauronians were a sentient species native to the planet Kauron in the Meram sector of the Outer Rim Territories. In 0 BBY, a number of Kauronian bounty hunters were present on Tatooine and were witnessed by Rodian bounty hunter Greedo entering Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina in Mos Eisley.
Behind the scenesEdit
Tom and Martha Veitch created the Kauronians for the short story A Hunter's Fate: Greedo's Tale, published by Bantam Spectra in 1995 as part of the anthology Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina. This story was later illustrated as the webstrip A Hunter's Fate: Greedo's Tale; however, no unidentified alien species appear in the background of the cantina scenes.

- ↑ 3.0 3.1 Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Kauron appears to be one such case. "I wouldn't get your hopes up re alien homeworlds, beyond simple stuff like the Planetnamian species getting a Planetnamia on the map or things Dan and I can account for with a relatively quick reference."
