"Morseerians are methane breathers."
Has Obitt[3]

Morseerians were a sentient species native to the planet Merj.

Biology and appearance[]

Morseerians[4] were a sentient species native to the planet Merj,[3] that had elongated, conical heads, four arms[2], and a methane-based respiration. Morseerians were unable to distinguish human faces.[3] Morseerians had to wear special suits and gas masks when traveling to oxygen-based planets.[5] Morseerians had green skin,[2] though the skin underneath their suits was translucent.[3]

Morseerians in the Galaxy[]

Chell Trambin was a Morseerian Nihil who lived during the High Republic Era. He would later perish during the Second attack on Cyclor.[6]

Multiple Morseerian scientists worked for the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars, including Nan Pakota and Urshe Torr. They were tasked with overseeing the creation of a biological warfare agent that would affect the clone troopers in the Grand Army of the Republic. Galactic Republic Lieutenant Commander Orson Krennic undertook a mission to Merj to capture the scientists and then use them in a prisoner exchange on Vallt.[3]

Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, a male Morseerian named Nabrun Leids, attended the cantina of Mos Eisley the day Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker met Han Solo and Chewbacca.[1] Many years later, Leids was present on Oba Diah, where he told Karr Nuq Sin about Skywalker and Kenobi's appearance at the cantina, though Leids did not remember what planet it had occurred on.[7]

Behind the scenes[]

Morseerians first appeared in the 1977 film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, the first installment of the Star Wars original trilogy.[8]

The head of the Rodian originally fit the head of a four-armed creature named the "Plutonian." This creature was later known as a morseerian.[9]
