Behind the scenes
Merg Thando was a non-player character in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts, prior to its shut down on December 15, 2011. Due to the nature of many older quests in Star Wars Galaxies, the species, gender, and appearance of Merg Thando changed each time a player performed this quest. Species that Thando could appear as included, but were not necessarily limited to, Aqualish and Zabraks. Therefore, it is impossible to verify the canonical species of Thando. However, the quest dialogue given by Gramm Rile indicated that Merg Thando was a male.
