"The Jedi is the rock-lion at the gate who says, 'I will defend these beings with my life, and that is the sum of me.'"
―Kina Ha[src]

The Zalorian rock-lion,[1] also known as the rock-lion, was a species native to the planet Zaloriis. The rock-lions' habitat was in the mountain range known as the Fantain Mountains, among the boulders which provided shelter from the planet's strong winds.[2]

Basilisk war droids were alternatively described as resembling an armored rock-lion[1] or a cross between a rock-lion and a Karran beetle.[3] In 19 BBY,[4] following the death of the Jedi Knight Etain Tur-Mukan, the Jedi Master Kina Ha compared the duty of the Jedi to that of a rock-lion at a gate, ready to give their life in the protection of other beings.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

Rock-lions were first mentioned in the databank entry for Zaloriis in the 2001 LucasArts video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds.[2] The species was fully identified as the Zalorian rock-lion in the 2006 reference book The New Essential Guide to Droids, written by Daniel Wallace and published in 2006.[1]
