The sentient Selonians resembled otters.

An otter was a type of creature. One species of otter, the Klepthian rock otter,[1] was native to[2] the Klepthia system in the Expansion Region's Tynna sector.[3] When the rock otters fed on basalt clams, the former chewed intensely on the shells of the latter.[1]

Otters resembled the Tynnans,[4] a bipedal,[5] aquatic,[6] sentient species native to the planet Tynna,[4] also located in the Tynna sector.[3] The Selonians,[7] fur-coated sentients inhabiting the[6] Core Worlds[8] planet Selonia,[6] and the flying bulfusi creature of the Core planet Corulag both also resembled otters.[9]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Otters were first mentioned in Elizabeth Hand's 2002 novel Boba Fett: Hunted.[7] In the real world, otters are furred aquatic mammals which eat fish and clams.[10]

Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. This article treats the Klepthia system as the location of one such homeworld with regard to the Klepthian rock otter species.
