Tibidees were a type of giant silicon-based[2] creature native to Stygeon Prime,[1] though they could also be found on other mountainous Outer Rim planets,[3] such as Oosalon.[5] The creatures were able to fly gracefully through a combination of their giant flat wings[2] and internal gasbags.[3] They had green eyes and long tails,[1] and a mating call that sounded similar to some communication frequencies, sometimes causing the frequencies to attract the creatures.[2] This led a group of tibidees to think that the jamming frequency of the Phantom, an attack shuttle, was a mating call.[4] Though normally gentle, tibidees would attack anything they felt was threatening,[1] including stormtroopers.[4] They were remotely related to neebrays and mynocks, both of which were also pests to starships.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Tibidees were created for "Rise of the Old Masters," the third episode of the first season of Star Wars Rebels. The name was a result of the creature originally being unnamed, and therefore labeled "TBD" for "to be determined." The letters "TBD" then became tibidee.[6]
