"One that turned out to be run by a Zeltron who was as pretty as a Tellanadan moonflower and as mean as a Hismauli hawk-snake."
―Lando Calrissian, on a brewery's operator[1]

The Tellanadan moonflower was a pretty plant[1] from the Mid Rim's[2] Tellanada system,[2][3] in existence by the year 0 ABY.[4] Lando Calrissian, a professional gambler, once compared a Zeltron who ran a brewery owned by him on the planet Clendor to the flower because of the prettiness shared by both of them.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Tellanadan moon flower was first mentioned in 2012's The Essential Guide to Warfare, written by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart as a guide dedicated to the conflicts in the Star Wars galaxy.

This article treats the Tellanada system as the location for one such homeworld.
