Alternate Names: Little Flash Gordon
Actor: Marcus Powell
Rycar Ryjerd is a little guy who often hangs out in Chalmun's
Cantina, but not usually Ackmena's Cantina. He can also sometimes
be spotted in the streets of Mos Eisley, often running from some
of the shady characters he deals with.
The character of Rycar Ryjerd was invented after the fact for
a little person at the cantina bar counter in Star Wars that the
crew called "Little Flash Gordon". He can be seen briefly
in the Holiday Special during the "Life On Tatooine"
segment where, in a scene cut from the original Star Wars movie,
he runs between the stilt-like legs of a very tall creature while
being pursued by unknown assailants.
