Rothgar Deng, possibly operating under an alias, was a Corellian bounty hunter who, by the time of the war between the First Order and the Resistance, was old and experienced. In an attempt to live and work forever, Deng subjected himself to cybernetic replacements, and turned to black market surgical clinics to replace damaged body parts.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Rothgar Deng appeared in the 2019 film Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker, and was identified in the accompanying reference book Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary, written by Pablo Hidalgo. While no explicit connection was made, Deng's name, background, and armor resemble that of the bounty hunter Dengar, who similarly hailed from Corellia. The 2020 reference text The Star Wars Book provided further similarities, stating that Dengar became almost unrecognizable after undergoing extreme surgeries following the Galactic Civil War.
