"…if you've never seen a Fledgling Mythrol evacuate their thorax, you're a lucky guy, trust me."
―A Mythrol, to Din Djarin[src]

The Mythrol were a sentient humanoid species with amphibious traits.

Biology and appearance[edit | edit source]

The Mythrol had amphibious traits such as gills and fins on their heads. They had thoraxes which had to be "evacuated" and could molt. Young Mythrol could produce a sweet musk.[1] After molting, their faces would become barbed.[2] Mythrol at a younger age were referred to as "fledglings."[1]

Mythrol in the galaxy[edit | edit source]

In 9 ABY,[3] a fledgling Mythrol resided on the ice planet Maldo Kreis within a bar, where he was harassed by a group of trawlers until the Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin entered. After dealing with the trawlers, Djarin captured the Mythrol and turned him over to the Bounty Hunters' Guild.[1]

In 35 ABY,[4] the post-fledgling Mythrol Junn Gobint managed fuel supplies for the Resistance[2] during their war against the First Order.[5]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Mythrol species first appeared in Chapter 1 of Jon Favreau's 2019 Disney+ television series The Mandalorian,[1] which aired on November 12, 2019.[6] While writing the visual dictionary for the 2019 film Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker, Lucasfilm Story Group member Pablo Hidalgo made a connection between The Mandalorian's Mythrol and the similar looking background alien Junn Gobint in Episode IX. Taking the television character's background as a "fledgling" into account, Hidalgo established in the dictionary that the independently designed aliens belonged to the same species.[2][7]

  3. According to StarWars.com SWCC 2019: 9 Things We Learned from The Mandalorian Panel on StarWars.com (backup link), the events of The Mandalorian take place about five years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY. Therefore, it can be deduced with simple math that the events of The Mandalorian take place around 9 ABY.
  4. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary dates the events of Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker as taking place one year after the "Starkiller Incident." As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Starkiller Incident to 34 ABY, it can be deduced the events of Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker take place in 35 ABY.

Since the Mando Mythrol had more backstory, that one drove the narrative." (backup link)
