Background: Doctor Cornelius Evazan was a human male from the planet Alsakan who was a promising cosmetic surgeon until madness made him begin practicing "creative surgery" on his patients, leaving his victims horrifically disfigured. During an encounter with a bounty hunter, which left his face hideously scarred, the Aqualish thug Ponda Baba rescued Evazan, following which the two formed an uneasy partnership. While working as the personal doctor of Dryden Vos, Evazan created an order of servants known as the Decraniated. Wanted men, he assumed the alias of "Roofoo," while Baba became known as "Sawkee," and after committing a rash of crimes on Milvayne, Evazan was nicknamed the Mutilator of Milvayne.
In the Holy City on Jedha, the fugitive cyborgist used his ghastly medical techniques to produce more of the Decraniated from insurgent victims. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, Evazan and Baba were patrons in the Mos Eisley Cantina on Tatooine. When a drunk Baba decided to pick a fight with a local farmboy named Luke Skywalker, Evazan quickly escalated the conflict, causing Skywalker's guardian, a hermit named Obi-Wan Kenobiâ€”in secret one of the few remaining Jedi Mastersâ€”to slash Evazan across the chest and sever Baba's right arm with his lightsaber. Evazan tried to use his medical training to reattach Baba's arm but failed, nearly killing the Aqualish in the process.
Hiding from the death sentences he had received, Evazan infiltrated a biofarm on Thannt and stole a pluripleq, a shape-shifting creature, and used it to disguise his face, taking the name Lopset Yas. Yas was soon imprisoned by the Galactic Empire in Accresker Jail, becoming a member of their expendable fighting force in a squad with Chelli Aphra, who nicknamed him "Flopso."
After Accresker Jail was decommissioned and fired on a collision course with Tiferep Major, Evazan followed Aphra, still in disguise. "Lopset" pretended to shape-shift into Evazan to trick the vigilante Tam Posla, who sought his arrest, into agreeing to rescue them. Aphra and Posla agreed to trade Evazan, both of them unaware of his true identity. Thinking he had been tricked, Posla returned to the prison with Yas to arrest Aphra. While there, Evazan incapacitated both Aphra and the assassin droid 0-0-0, taking them aboard Posla's ship. Revealing who he truly was, Evazan removed his proximity bomb and placed it in Triple-Zero, leaving the two stranded together for his own entertainment.
Evazan and Baba watched from afar as Aphra and Triple-Zero traveled to Milvayne to have their proximity bombs removed. Evazan decided to hire the monster hunters Winloss and Nokk to hunt the pair, as well as broadcasting the live feed from Triple-Zero's eyes to the citizens of Milvayne, prompting any money-craving individuals to help the Milvayne Authority capture them. Eventually, though, Winloss and Nokk let their targets live and instead captured Evazan and deactivated the proximity bombs.
Personality and traits
Prior to being gripped by madness, Doctor Cornelius Evazan was a promising surgeon, though he later gained notoriety for the cruelty he inflicted upon his patients, while his reputation as a smuggler and murderer also made him many enemies across the galaxy. He and Ponda Baba enjoyed brawling and gunning down defenseless beings, and Evazan was quick to antagonize those who crossed him, as demonstrated by his brushes with Cassian Andor on Jedha and Luke Skywalker in Mos Eisley. It was said that he never stopped until his victims begged him for death, just so he could say no. However, despite his ruthlessness, Evazan was capable of true loyalty; when Baba lost his arm, Evazan replaced it with a cybernetic one, excusing that evil didn't preclude friendship.
A self-described "techflesh artist," Evazan was boastful of his infamy, openly informing Skywalker in the Mos Eisley Cantina that he had the death sentence on twelve systems. After Baba began to bully Skywalker, Evazan was quick to escalate the argument, even going so far as to threaten Skywalker before Obi-Wan Kenobi interceded. Ignoring the old man's attempt to smooth the rising tension, the doctor resorted to violence, shoving the farmboy aside and drawing his blaster pistol, which ended poorly for both Evazan and Baba.
A human male, Evazan had light skin and stood at a height of 1.77 meters. His eyes were colored hazel, though his right eye was blind and the flesh around it severely scarred, while his nose looked as if it had barely survived an unfortunate encounter with a meat shredder. Due to his wounds, Evazan lived in a constant state of pain and anger and relied on a constant, alternating barrage of narcotics and physical violence to mitigate his perpetual agony. His hair was colored brown with patches of gray, though he showed signs of balding, and stubble covered the lower half of his face. Evazan had foul-smelling breath.
To avoid his many death sentences, Evazan used a pluripleq to change his face. Adopting a new name, Lopset Yas, he stayed off the grid for over a month, until he revealed himself to Chelli Aphra. As Yas, he was quick to become nervous or fearful, begging Dek-Nil to let him into his squad after his first hubdroid exploded, and gaining a stutter whenever he became frightened. He quickly learned a lot about Aphra, second-guessing her connections with the underworld. Evazan was also very conscious of his surroundings, noticing a lot of weird doings in the Accresker Jail. He also trusted Chelli Aphra a lot, having to follow her wherever they she went due to the hubdroid they had in common. When she followed the Force spirit to the Penumbra-1 shattersprite Yas was quick to follow and he made sure to keep Dek-Nil's central processor to keep their implants from detonating. He continued to carry the piece of Dek-Nil even when the implants were disabled.
Skills and abilities
Evazan was also a skilled electrician. He found and rebuilt a transmitter on Accresker Jail, and gave it to Aphra to use. Evazan also had knowledge of other subjects, recognizing the gundravian hookspores and describing them in some depth.
Evazan wore a long-sleeved khaki shirt underneath a brown vest, a pair of dark-brown pants, and a pair of black boots. His black belt had a golden buckle and a holster for his SE-14C blaster pistol When operating, Evazan wore scrubs and used a variety of medical instruments. During his servitude at the Accresker Jail, Evazan wore dark brown leather clothing with a large hood and compartments around the waist, an outfit worn by all prisoners at Accresker Jail.
When using his pluripleq, Evazan could take many forms, including Kelko Dev and Sandewar Mandewar. But he usually had a similar appearance to the abednedo species, having brown skin, and eyes that changed color over time.
