|Base of Operations||Feriae Junction|
|First Appearance||Star Wars, Volume 1 #27|
Polyp was a diminutive alien who worked for a salvage yard owner named Skinker on the Outer rim world of Feriae Junction. His species unknown, Polyp stood about a meter tall and had green skin with a tapered nose. Due to his size, Polyp was able to make his way through the yard's various scurry-holes that extended throughout the outpost. Several months following the Battle of Yavin, Polyp and Skinker encountered a cyborg bounty hunter named Beilert Valance whom Skinker had hired to kill a slaver named Marko Tyne. Hungry for more work, Valance was anxious to get his hands on a "droid-loving" human named Luke Skywalker. When Luke and his protocol droid C-3P0 happened to come to Junction, Skinker sent Polyp out to find Valance to tell him of the Rebel's arrival. Valance came to the shop and engaged Skywalker in combat. Skinker and Polyp were briefly stunned during the firefight, but recovered soon after.
