"Look at that one. He looks like a slime-gnome."
"Shush. He'll hear you."
"I'm not surprised with ears like that."
―Ramil, to Jenza when referring to Yoda — (audio) Listen (file info)[1]

A slime-gnome[2] was a type of creature.[1] Around 90 BBY,[3] a celebration was hosted on the planet Serenno by Gora, the Count of Serenno, and attended by the Jedi Grand Master Yoda. After observing Yoda, Gora's older son, Ramil, told his sister, Jenza, that the Jedi looked like a slime-gnome. Jenza, however, was concerned that the Jedi could hear them, to which Ramil answered that it would have been no surprise, as Yoda had long ears.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Slime-gnomes were mentioned in a flashback in the audio drama Dooku: Jedi Lost, written by Cavan Scott[1] and published on April 30, 2019.[4] As Dooku: Jedi Lost was released as an audio-only story, the spelling of slime-gnomes remained unconfirmed[1] until it was given in the script release of the audio drama[2] on October 1, 2019.[4]
