"Rumor has it that it got its peculiar name from a Falleen prince-turned-crime-lord, but I'm pretty sure that's just a legend."
―Strono Tuggs on the salad allegedly named for Xizor[src]

Xizor was a Falleen male prince-turned-crime-lord who was rumored to be the namesake of Xizor Salad according to the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs. Tuggs was dubious of the rumor and believed it was likely only a legend.[1] Xizor also shared his name with Xizor Transport Systems.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Figurines of Xizor in the filming of the Mos Espa Grand Arena

Xizor was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in the 2019 cookbook Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook written by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel and Marc Sumerak,[1] a part of the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge multimedia project centered on the theme park of the same name.[3] In the Stars Wars Legends continuity, Xizor was first mentioned in the 1995 novel Darksaber written by Kevin J. Anderson.[4] He first appeared in the 1996 novel Shadow of the Empire by Steve Perry[5] and went on to play a major role in the Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire multimedia project.[6]

During the Boonta Eve Classic sequence of the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, the first installment of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, the micro-machine toy figurine of Xizor was used as a stand-in for members of the crowd.[7] However, as this cameo was solely used as background fill-ins, it's unknown if this would be considered an actual appearance of the character.[8]
