Braxas is an alien informant from the planet Solay in the Star Wars galaxy. He belongs to a species that resembles a cross between E.T. and Dr. Seuss' Grinch.
He once hired Luke Skywalker as a pilot to drive him off-planet in order to flee from Solayan authorities, and payed Luke by revealing the truth about Raggold's death.
Braxas uses a kind of wheelchair to move around, but it's not known if that is because he comes from a light gravity world or is simply disabled or old. He also likes to test people's nerves before hiring them by asking them to get a piece of meal from a bowl containing a live scorpion-like creature.
