Selonians were a sentient species from the world of Selonia. They had particularly light-sensitive eyes, which meant that they were especially vulnerable to the weapons known as flashsticks, which emitted a bright flash of light to stun their target when used.[1]

The type of weapon known as the shard shooter was a unique Selonian slugthrower that used electromagnetic propulsion to fire razor-sharp crystalline ammunition. It was popular with local defense forces on Selonia, but those taking it offworld were often questioned and hassled about the nature of the weapon.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

In the new Star Wars canon Selonians were first mentioned in the 2019 Fantasy Flight Games roleplaying supplement Gadgets and Gear.[1] In the Star Wars Legends continuity, Selonians first appeared in the 1979 comic strip Gambler's World, which was written and illustrated by Russ Manning,[2] although the species would not receive a name until the 1995 novel Ambush at Corellia by Roger MacBride Allen.[3]
