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

Kelko Dev was an alleged female alien ruler who was depicted by[1] the notorious doctor and smuggler[2] Cornelius Evazan[3] sometime between 0 ABY and 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]

Additionally, the rebel base on Hoth is still intact during the events of Doctor Aphra (2016) 40, which takes place after Doctor Aphra 21. Since Galactic Atlas also places the destruction of the base in 3 ABY, the events of Doctor Aphra 21, where Kelko Dev is impersonated, must have taken place sometime between 0 ABY and 3 ABY.
