"…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[]

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[]

Around 82 BBY[3] towards the end of the High Republic Era, a Mythrol male worked as a chef for President Jamie Brasen at his estate on the planet of Begamore.[4]

Prior to 9 ABY,[5] a fledgling Mythrol was in the employ of Magistrate Greef Karga on Nevarro, before he stole from him and fled.[6] Sometime later, he 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] Sometime later, the Mythrol was allowed by Karga to work off his debt to him through three hundred and fifty years of indentured servitude. During that time, he aided Karga, Din Djarin, and Marshal Carasynthia Dune in infiltrating and destroying a remnant Imperial base.[6]

In 35 ABY,[7] the post-fledgling Mythrol Junn Gobint managed fuel supplies for the Resistance[2] during their war against the First Order.[8]

Behind the scenes[]

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.[9] 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][10]

Archived from the original on December 18, 2020. — It is stated that The Vow of Silver Dawn takes place about fifty years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 32 BBY. Therefore, Vow of Silver Dawn takes place around 82 BBY.

  5. 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.

  7. 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)
