The rathtar was a species that could be found in the galaxy.[1] Around 3629 BBY,[2] rathtar genetic markers, along with those from dozens of other species, were found by Doctor Juvard Illip Oggurobb inside Gethul,[1] a creature that was hibernating under the surface of the planet Makeb and that was killed by the Commander of the Eternal Alliance.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
