There was a post like this on some other forum once, but they didn't get the answer, so here the question is once more:
What exactly is Desann?

The bad guy. :)

j/k, I don't know what race he belongs to, though he does bear a strong resemblance to my American History teacher.

I guess the lazy people at LucasArts never decided what he/she/it/whatever was. I checked all the species and creatures at the Starwars.com database (I have a lot of spare time) and none of them matched Desann. On some other forum they said he was some type of Serpanireptalikolian or something but apparently, Serpanireptalikolians have split tongues or something.
Anyhow, I found some info on Katarn Plu Jerek and his henchmen, but since noone here cares, I'll just stop typing in unneccasary information right now.

What are Gorc and Pic from JK1?

LEC doesn't name its made up stuff often, it seems... :rolleyes:

Also, instead of making a new topic about the same thing when there is the same topic elsewhere, just on another page... ;)

Lucas and his crew don't name alot of stuff until YEARS after it has come out. Take the original Star Wars movies for example. Alot of the species and characters in the ANH, ESB, and ROTJ (like the Twi'leks) were not named until almost a decade after the movies were released. Heck, we don't even know Yoda's species, and he's been out for more than 20 years. :eek:

Sadly, they give everything a history right away, so it kills the fun of EU. :(

I made a post like this before and never got the reply. If he's not a barabel, what does a barabel look like?!? I havn't been able to find any art on the topic so far.

Did Dessan die at the end? Kyle just kind of left him there. Sequel, perhaps?

Did you watch the cutscene?

You take his head off (well, at least I do with cheats).

You see his arm come up slowly, but it falls and he dies. Kyle shakes his head in disappointment at his sensless death.

Definetly NOT Desann's race.

*claws eyes out after witnessing the horridity of that illustration*

I vote he is, and that artist is on crack. :D

I'll agree with the second part :p

I explained before, Desann may be from the outside galaxy or Unknown Region. He was feared because his people had no knowledge of the Force. He is species unknown. No one here (or at LEC for that matter) knows...

Desann has no tail. Barabels have big tails. That ALONE should provide a distinction, no?

Like PrimoSidone, I think hes a overgrown Kowakian monkey-lizard. :D

Of course he has no tail, I just think maybe LA wanted a barabel, but didn't go to the trouble of making a tail because no one would care anyway and discuss it on forums.

I heard he was a Ssi Ruuk or whatever they are.

I don't think he's Ssi-Ruuvi, their snouts are more pointy I think.

This is the only online picture of a Ssi-Ruuk I could find.
They look a little more like Dinosaurs than Desann.

Mind you, it's EU isn't it? They could both ET's brother for all we know. They seem to change it as they go along. :p

I don't think he died at the end, Katarn. I crushed him with the big pillar, so I guess it's kind of 50/50. It just seems strange that Kyle wouldn't finish him off or anything.

-PS- Nice signature, there guy. *Shudder*

Ok I think he's dead at the end.

He was a bad antagonist to start with, and if he comes back as the main baddie again in JA I'm gonna cry.
