R'kik D'nec was a male Jawa[2] from the planet of Tatooine.[1] At some point by the year 4 ABY,[3] D'nec allegedly encountered a tribe of Tusken Raiders, a herd of angry banthas, and a raging krayt dragon in the Dune Sea, and defeated all of them[4] within minutes, emerging from the Dune Sea with a bantha tusk over his shoulder.[2] For this alleged exploit, the Jawa was regarded as the "Hero of the Dune Sea." However, many suspected the legend grew in the telling.[4] D'nec was also undefeated in the game of Dune Sea Sabacc, with no witnesses to the contrary.[5] D'nec wore brown Jawa robes and had yellow eyes.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

R'kik D'nec was first mentioned in 1998, on a couple of cards for the Jabba's Palace Limited expansion set of the Star Wars Customizable Card Game.[2][5] According to a Star Wars CCG fan site, R'kik D'nec was named as an anagram of Decipher employee Kendrick Summers.[6] In 2003, his name was included as a sample Jawa name mentioned in the Ultimate Alien Anthology.[7]
