A script written in grey on the walls of Holy City on Jedha

A script was used in the Holy Quarter of Jedha's Holy City by the year 0 BBY. During the Battle of Scarif, Red Twelve wore a flight helmet with yellow markings in this script.[1] Tam Posla's helmet had two letters written in this script which abbreviated "Milvayne Authority."[2] Around 19 BBY, a glowing sign in Saleucami town read "Offworld Travel."[3] During the Imperial Era, crime lord Dryden Vos owned a desk with an obsidian slab as its base carved with the inscription "Our temple honouring Sith Lord Exar Kun."[4]

Behind the scenes[]

"It's called domabesh [sic], and was made for Rogue One."
―Pablo Hidalgo[src]

This unidentified script first appeared in the Star Wars Anthology film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which was released in 2016.[1] In 2019, when Glyn Dillon, a costume designer of Rogue One, was asked about the font on Twitter, he revealed that it has been developed at the request from[5] director[1] Gareth Edwards.[5] In 2021, when asked on Twitter, Lucasfilm Story Group member Pablo Hidalgo called it "domabesh,"[6] but it still has not been identified in any canon source.

According to Pablo Hidalgo, Domabesh is thought to be an archaic script, not as ancient as Ur-Kittât, but older than Aurebesh.[7]

They were designed by art dept graphics team. I was able to use them in any designs that needed text. Dishabesh just seemed to suit Enfys more than others." (screenshot)
