Biography[edit | edit source]
Twylope Nur was a Mohsenian male who served the Resistance as a field medic during their war against the First Order. He was part of the core Resistance group that set up base on the jungle moon of Ajan Kloss under the command of General Leia Organa.
In 35 ABY, he was present in the base when the YT-1300 light freighter known as the Millennium Falcon returned from a mission to the Sinta Glacier Colony. The starship was heavily damaged and on fire, and Nur was amongst the Resistance personnel who rushed forward to aid in putting out the flames and helping the crew. While the others were tending to the fire, Nur was knelt down in front of the vessel attending to something on the ground.
Following Organa's death, Nur later attended a meeting at the base led by Generals Poe Dameron and Finn, who laid out a plan to attack the forces of the First Order and Sith Eternal on the planet Exegol. The Resistance ultimately emerged victorious with aid from allies from around the galaxy, and following the battle Nur took part in celebrations held on Ajan Kloss, jumping up and down amidst the crowds of joyous allies.

This allowed him to diagnose patients quickly and accurately then administer appropriate treatments. He had large black eyes, white fur and cream skin.
