"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[src]

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. Doctor Aphra (2016) 38 takes place shortly before Doctor Aphra (2016) 39, at which point Echo Base has been constructed on Hoth, and prior to Empire Ascendant 1, which in turn takes place before the Battle of Hoth. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas states that Echo Base was constructed in 3 ABY and places the Battle of Hoth in the same year, meaning that the events of Doctor Aphra 38, including the mention of Mzzrzz, are also set in 3 ABY.
