View Full Version : Rystall's mixed parentage...

According to EU canon, Rystall (http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/rystall/) (one of the dancer's in Jabba's palace) was half human, and half something else (Theelin according to the Unofficial SW Encyclopedia). Another explanation I recall reading somewhere was that she was of a near-human race (though not a half-breed).

I'm curious what either explanation means for characters like Diva Shaliqua (http://starwars.com/episode-i/snapshot/2001/01/snapshot20010130.html) and Diva Funquita (http://www.decipher.com/youngjedi/cardlists/battleofnaboo/dark/large/87divafunquitadancer.html), who appear to be of the same race or mixed parentage, although even more human looking that Rystall. At least one source suggests that Diva is the name of the species to which they belong, though it seems more likely to me to simply be a title.

Any more info or theories?

Diva could also be a title. as both these diva's served jabba in some capacity

The only information I've ever read about Rystal is that she's a half-breed. Other confirmed half-breeds in Star Wars include Shug Nix from Dark Empire , and A'Sharad Hett , the half-Tusken Jedi. In al three cases, one parent was Human.

Let's not forget Zekka "Patches" Thyne. Generally Human, but with plenty of evidence that one parent really wasn't.

Rystal and Shug are both Theelin/Human crossbreeds.

A'Sharad Hett is actually fully human, both his mother and father were humans with went around with a Tusken band.. He mentions it in one of the later Republic comics.

I personally always assumed Zekka to be a Theelin as well, though he could be just about anything. *Attaches two pictures of him*
