- "Ever heard of a pluripleq? Fascinating little beast. Bioengineered. Only a few ever made."
- ―Cornelius Evazan
A pluripleq was a bioengineered non-sentient tentacled creature which had the ability to change its appearance, similar to a changeling. Though they were rare, at least one was held in a biofarm on Thannt. Doctor Cornelius Evazan, evading his many death sentences, infiltrated the biofarm and stole a pluripleq, wearing it on his face to disguise himself and using the name "Lopset Yas". While Evazan was a prisoner aboard Accresker Jail, the pluripleq was detected when "Lopset" and Chelli Aphra were scanned by Dek-Nil, but the extra lifeform was put down to a technological error. When the shapeshifting abilities of the pluripleq were accidentally revealed to Aphra, Evazan pretended that he was a changeling himself. He later used the pluripleq to disguise himself as Princess Leia Organa while hiring Nokk and Winloss to hunt down Aphra and 0-0-0, but Nokk could tell that it was a disguise.
Behind the scenesEdit
The pluripleq first appeared—as the face of "Lopset Yas"— in the 2018 canon comic Doctor Aphra 20, written by Simon Spurrier and illustrated by Kev Walker. It was not identified as such until Doctor Aphra 25, also written by Spurrier and illustrated by Walker.
