Behind the scenesEdit
The Weequay mercenary Labansat was first mentioned as a "notable personalit[y]" of his species in the 1995 West End Games sourcebook Galaxy Guide 12: Aliens — Enemies and Allies. He later appeared in the 1998 PC game Star Wars: Rebellion as one of several Imperial-aligned characters available to the player. In the game, Labansat possesses advanced combat and espionage abilities, performing well on abduction, assassination, and sabotage missions; however, as a result, his leadership and diplomacy skills are lacking. His name was later mentioned as an example of a Weequay name in Ultimate Alien Anthology, published in 2003.
Star Wars Galaxy Magazine 10 from January 1997 included an article written by Tom Byron previewing Star Wars: Rebellion prior to the game's release. The article mistakenly states that Labansat originated in author Timothy Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy novel series.
