The zymod was a type of arboreal creature native to the jungle moon Ajan Kloss. They had the ability to change the color of their hide, with hairy crests along their back and atop their head that could be brown in color. The rest of their skin, including their tails, could be green in color but was black at the end of their four limbs, each of which ended in four webbed digits. The creatures' face included two protruding eyes and a mouth[1] with a poisonous tongue.[2]

In 35 ABY,[3] the Jedi-in-training Rey dodged the flick of a zymod's tongue while moving through a training course built in the jungles near the Resistance base on Ajan Kloss.[2] A zymod was later climbing on a tree next to the base when Commander Poe Dameron announced that the Sith Lord Darth Sidious had returned.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

A zymod first appeared in the 2019 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker[4] and was identified in the accompanying reference book Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by Pablo Hidalgo.[1] Concept art of a zymod was created by creature concept designer Louis Wiltshire and titled "Wizard 75."[5] In Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: A Junior Novel, a 2020 adaptation of the film written by Michael Kogge, zymod is misspelt as "zymond."[2]
