"The abominatrix Kelko Dev."
"I posed as her double to flush out terrorists opposing her rule."
―"Lopset Yas" and Chelli Aphra[1]

Kelko Dev was an alleged female alien ruler who was depicted by[1] the notorious doctor and smuggler[2] Cornelius Evazan[3] around 3 ABY,[4] while disguised as a shapeshifter named "Lopset Yas" using a pluripleq, a rare bioengineered creature.[3] While impersonating Dev, Evazan claimed to the rogue archaeologist Chelli Aphra, who found her attractive, that he once posed as the double of the "abominatrix" to flush out terrorists who opposed her rule. Evazan's depiction of Dev had blue eyes and gray skin with dark green and purple sections. His depiction of Dev also had tendrils behind her chin.[1]

Kelko Dev appeared, through impersonation, in the comic Doctor Aphra (2016) 21, written by Si Spurrier, illustrated by Kev Walker, and published by Marvel Comics[1] on June 27, 2018.[5]

  4. The events of Doctor Aphra (2016) 21 takes place shortly before the events of issue 22 of the Star Wars: Doctor Aphra comic-book series. In the latter issue, Accresker Jail is decommissioned. Crimson Reign 3 states that Jeremoch Colton had been in the wreckage-prison for over three years when Madelin Sun visited him. Crimson Reign 3 also states that he was imprisoned after the capture of the Tantive IV, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY. Since Accresker Jail is decommissioned prior to the events of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, which Galactic Atlas dates to 3 ABY, Doctor Aphra 23 must take place in 3 ABY, and the events of Doctor Aphra 21 have to have occurred around that year.
