The Dashade were tall, reptilian humanoids from the planet Urkupp.
Physiology and Culture
The Dashade were tall, reptilian humanoids with dark skin and lamprey-like mouths. They were powerful warriors and assassins. Dashade warriors easily found employment as combat instructors for the Jedi and assassins for the Sith, though the Dashade's aggressive culture caused them to favor the Sith. Dashade also had powerful claws and an ability to dissipate heat which made them hard to detect using standard life-form sensors.
Their planet, Urkupp, was destroyed when the Cron Drift supernova exploded during the Great Sith War. Thirty-six Dashade Shadow Killers, retainers of a Falleen royal house, were among the off-world survivors. They were placed in cryogenic suspension, to be revived one at a time when needed for special assignments. By the time of the Galactic Civil War, only one known Dashade remained Ket Maliss. Prince Xizor, a descendant of the royals who had passed the Dashade down over the generations, inherited this warrior and made him an assassin for Black Sun.
In addition to these preserved warriors, rumors of Dashade sightings continued sporadially over the millennia. For example, there was evidence that Dashade participated in the Great Jedi Purge.
