- «I assure you this landspeeder is brand new. It's the latest model… At your pleasure.»
- ―The ferryman attempts to reassure the Mandalorian before being paid extra[src]
A gray-skinned Kubaz worked as a ferryman on the ice planet Maldo Kreis shortly following the fall of the Galactic Empire. In around 9 ABY, a Mandalorian bounty hunter approached the ferryman with a Mythrol bounty he had captured seeking transport back to his gunship, the Razor Crest, which was parked out on nearby ice fields.
The Kubaz summoned one of his newest landspeeders by playing a flute, but the Mandalorian turned it down as it was piloted by an R2 unit. After the bounty hunter flipped him some extra payment, the Kubaz played the flute once more, instead summoning a much older landspeeder piloted by a human, which the Mandalorian accepted. The Kubaz wore a pair of goggles, a brown and gray jacket with a fur-lined hood, brown pants, red gloves and black boots.
Behind the scenes
The Kubaz ferryman appeared in the first episode of the 2019 Disney+ television series The Mandalorian, which aired on November 12, 2019. He was portrayed by Christopher Bartlett. The character's mask was made for the show by Tom Spina's design company, Regal Robot.
