Background: Arcona were a sentient species of desert-dwelling humanoids that was native to the planet Cona. They lived in family-based communities and were notorious for their addiction to common salt. They also had triangular heads with two large eyes set wide apart, and hands with three or four fingers. During the Clone Wars, an Arcona bounty hunter named El-Les assisted in the training of new clone troopers for the Grand Army of the Galactic Republic. Over twenty years later, shortly before the Battle of Yavin, a brown-skinned Arcona named Hem Dazon lived on Tatooine, where he had become stranded after spending all his money on salt and juri juice.
