- "The Sullustans were a peaceful and technologically advanced species renowned for their research and manufacturing on the lava planet Sullust. Their bodies were also naturally resilient due to the harsh conditions on the planet, and were skilled in tunneling, piloting, and demolitions.
The rise of the First Order became a wakeup call to some Sullustans, who had not forgotten the dark times of Imperial occupation, and splinter groups armed with stolen technology left the planet to join the Resistance."
- — In-game description
This skin is based on the alien species known as Sullustans that hail from the planet Sullust. They are easily identified by the gill-like flaps around their mouth and by their large ears and black eyes. In The Force Awakens, iconic Sullustan Nien Nunb is seen in multiple background shots of the Resistance base and later in the film is also seen piloting an X-wing during the Battle of Starkiller Base, confirming the involvement of Sullustans in the army of the Resistance itself.
- While Sullustans were originally seen in trailers for the game and in the single-player campaign, they did not become a playable appearance until much later into the game's life.
