- "My aim was to scare off you and your kind, as molten men scare lizard-crows on the lava fields."
- ―Mother Sssl, to Vader's forces
Molten men were entities in Mustafarian culture. According to the priestess Sssl, they were known to ward off lizard-crows, creatures that congregated on the lava fields of the volcanic world of Mustafar. During her assault on the fortress of Darth Vader, Mother Sssl likened the molten men's effects on lizard-crows to her attempt to scare the Sith Lord and his Imperial forces away from her world.
