Species of the week: Shaaridan


Designation: Sentient

Homeworld: Shaarida

Notable members: Gekko

Fandom: Star Wars

Appearances: The Mandalorian


Shaaridans are a hardy race, known for their ruthless warriors. They are distinguished by their horns and black and white skin patterning. They are otherwise humanoid but require breath masks in standard atmosphere. Gekko, a key member of the Bounty Hunters Guild was a Shaaridan. 

I loved seeing Gekko on screen, mainly from seeing the enthusiasm of actor Dominic Pace for his character on Twitter and his generally being a beacon of positivity. The names Gekko and Shaaridan aren’t official as of yet but Dominic has stated that’s how he wants the character to be known and if that’s good enough for him it’s good enough for me!!
