"You know, the prophet Mzzrzz spoke of a divine consciousness inside a lump of bantha dung which could usher in an age of enlightenment—and he still had at least half his head attached at that point."
―Korin Aphra[1]

Mzzrzz was a male prophet who lived at some point before the time of the Galactic Empire. Mzzrzz claimed to know of a divine consciousness inside a lump of bantha dung, which he believed could lead the galaxy to a new age of enlightenment. At some point during his life, Mzzrzz lost at least half of his head, though he survived for some time despite the injuries. After being captured by the Empire and held prisoner aboard[1] the flagship Executor[2] in 3 ABY,[3] the scholar Korin Aphra mentioned Mzzrzz and his theory while criticizing the Sith Lord Darth Vader's claim that the Empire created its own history.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Mzzrzz was mentioned in the comic Doctor Aphra (2016) 38, written by Simon Spurrier and published by Marvel Comics[1] on November 6, 2019.[4]

  2. Doctor Aphra (2016) 37
  3. The events of Doctor Aphra (2016) 38 are set between issues 22 and 40 of the Star Wars: Doctor Aphra comic-book series. In issue 22, Accresker Jail is decommissioned. Crimson Reign 3 states that Jeremoch Colton had been in the wreckage-prison for over three years when Madelin Sun visited him. Crimson Reign 3 issue also states that he was imprisoned after the capture of the Tantive IV, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY. The rebel base on Hoth is still intact during the events of Doctor Aphra 40, and Galactic Atlas dates the base's destruction to 3 ABY. Therefore, the events of Doctor Aphra 38, including the mention of Mzzrzz, have to have occurred in that year.
