- "I'm not the Sarlacc?"
The very young Susejo fell into the sarlacc pit around four thousand years before the Battle of Yavin. After being swallowed by the sarlacc, he passed time by trading stories with an unlucky Jedi who shared his fate. By 4 ABY, his personality had merged with that of the sarlacc, which had digested him alive for thousands of years whilst it absorbed his consciousness. Thus, Susejo's personality embodied the creature, rendering it indistinguishable from the ancient sentient. Susejo introduced himself to Boba Fett when the bounty hunter suffered the same fate.
Behind the scenesEdit
- "Then they told me the Sarlacc couldn’t be intelligent, which was the actual center of the weakened story, so I took all the Sarlacc’s contribution to the story and gave it to one of Fett’s fellow prisoners “Susejo,” or O Jesus backwards"
- ―Daniel Keys Moran on Susejo's creation
Susejo made his first, and only, appearance in the 1996 short story "A Barve Like That: The Tale of Boba Fett", written by Daniel Keys Moran under the pseudonym of "J.D. Montgomery" and published as part of the Tales from Jabba's Palace anthology. Keys Moran initially intended for the sarlacc to be sentient, but ultimately gave its contribution to the story to Susejo when Lucasfilm Ltd. vetoed the possibility of the sarlacc being intelligent.
