Behind the scenes
The Myr Rho share a name with the Cathar individual Myhr Rho. Myhr Rho appeared in The Star Wars Holiday Special. He was later retconned into a Cathar by his Databank entry, which explained that his appearance differed from previously seen Cathar such as Crado and Sylvar because he shaved off his fur to accommodate the hot Tatooine climate. If Myhr Rho is intended to belong to the Myr Rho subspecies, then Planet Hoppers article appears to be altering the above retcon.
