Muscular: Gigorans are large muscles lifeforms, but unlike similar creatures like Wookiees, this is in direct strength rather than agility, meaning they suffer a -1D penalty on Climbing/Jumping rolls, but get a bonus on +1D on Lifting, Stamina and Brawling Damage rolls.
Language Limitation: Due to their vocal physiology, Gigorans cannot speak Basic, but they are fully capable of understanding the language. In order to communicate with species that did not speak their language, Gigorans often wore translating vocoders on their mouths to speak other languages besides Gigoran.

Description: Moroff was a Gigoran male mercenary who was active during the Imperial Era. As a towering gunner, he sought out combat zones across the galaxy with the goal of selling his services to anyone who required it. Moroff eventually joined the Partisans, a militia group led by the resistance fighter Saw Gerrera, and fought against the Galactic Empire in the hope of making a profit. During his time with the group, Moroff participated in a mission on the astronomical object Dooma 4, ending in the destruction of the Imperial Metal Factory.
In 0 BBY, Moroff was present on the moon of Jedha during the Partisans' skirmishes against Imperial forces in the area. He was among the group of Partisans who captured and brought the defecting Imperial pilot Bodhi Rook before Gerrera in their hideout located in the Catacombs of Cadera. They later took part in a battle against a local Imperial patrol in Jedha City, resulting in the group stealing a shipment of kyber crystals that the Imperials possessed. Shortly after, Moroff was present in the Catacombs when Jedha City was destroyed by the Empire's Death Star superweapon, resulting in the death of Gerrera and many Partisans.
Joining the Partisans
Moroff was a mercenary who operated during the Imperial Era. Realizing the potential money to be made as a gunner, he traveled around the galaxy in order to seek out combat zones, aiming to sell his brawn and firepower to anyone who would require them. He later became an outlaw when he joined the Partisans, an extremist militia group led by the resistance fighter Saw Gerrera, and fought against the Galactic Empire in order to generate profit, which he managed to acquire at a substantial rate.
Moroff was later listed as a known associate of Gerrera on wanted posters created by the Empire, alongside fellow Partisans Beezer Fortuna, Weeteef Cyu-Bee, and the Tognath eggmates Edrio and Benthic. One of the posters was included in a compilation of documents known as The Rebel Files, while another was included in Scum and Villainy: Case Files on the Galaxy's Most Notorious, a collection of case files compiled by the head of the planet Hosnian Prime's law enforcement, Commissioner Exantor Divo.
Action with the Partisans
In 5 BBY, Moroff and the Partisans were stationed at a base on the planet Segra Milo. The Gigoran stood at an open area of the base while the rebel Luthen Rael spoke with Gerrera inside, offering the Partisans a mission to assist rebel Anto Kreegyr. He refused to risk the lives of his forces for the attack, dismissing Kreegyr as a Separatist. Later on, however, Gerrera was willing to take on the mission. When Rael visited again, Moroff was patrolling the base. The rebel advised Gerrera not to assist Kreegyr in order to safeguard their rebellion against the Empire, as the Imperial Security Bureau had laid a trap for Kreegyr and his men. After a heated confrontation, Gerrera agreed to avoid meeting him.
Sometime prior to the Jedha insurgency, Moroff and the Partisans, led by Gerrera and Lieutenant Megyn Soone, attacked the Imperial Metal Factory on the astronomical object Dooma 4. After rushing to the entrance, the group took cover behind various crates. Despite being heavily outgunned, they held their ground on Gerrera's orders when Soone left their position to plant explosives within the factory. She was captured, however, and Gerrera entered the factory to rescue her and detonate the explosives himself. Moroff and the others retreated to their U-wing soon after on the orders of Edrio, who was piloting the ship. They reunited with Gerrera and Soone aboard the ship after the explosives were detonated and departed the factory.
At some point, the Partisans relocated their base of operations to the Catacombs of Cadera located on the desert moon of Jedha, where they clashed with the local Imperials on several occasions. In 0 BBY, Moroff was patrolling the desert and was among a group of Partisans when Bodhi Rook, a pilot who defected from the Empire, appeared before them. They quickly trained their blasters at him as they believed he was an Imperial. After Rook informed them of his defection and that he had a message for Gerrera, the group captured the pilot.
Moroff and the group brought the pilot before Benthic and another group of Partisans. Benthic interrogated him briefly before ordering the others to place a bag over the pilot's head and take him to Gerrera for further questioning. As the term "defector" had no translation in the Tognath language, Moroff defined the concept to Benthic, who would have killed the pilot had he not been informed about Rook's defection. The explanation allowed the pilot to survive his encounter with the Partisans.
Moroff later participated in a raid against the Imperial Hammers Elite Armor Unit, which included a TX-225 combat assault tank carrying a shipment of kyber crystals, in Tythoni Square within the Imperial-occupied Jedha City. The Gigoran was in charge of taking out containers of crystals from the battlefield. After the Imperial unit was eliminated, the Gigoran and the Partisans quickly looted the tank and acquired the kyber, placing the crystals within containers of their own. As an AT-ST walker and more Imperials arrived, Moroff and the others quickly fled into an alleyway with the containers in hand. After the battle, he was present at the Catacombs when the Empire's Death Star superweapon obliterated Jedha City, causing a massive shockwave. The Partisans quickly evacuated their base, although Gerrera stayed behind and perished when the structure collapsed in the shockwave. Numerous Partisans also lost their lives in the event, although it was unknown whether or not Moroff survived.
Moroff and his species were detailed in an artist's journal, which described the mercenary as the most famous member of the Gigorans, who were normally peaceful individuals. The document was later restored, expanded, and kept in the Graf Archive at some point after 34 ABY.
Personality and traits
Moroff was a Gigoran male with white fur and black eyes. Tall and brawny, he believed there was money to be made as a heavy gunner and was disinterested in the ongoing conflict between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire. Motivated by nothing more than greed, he sold his skills to the highest bidder, disregarding their political allegiance, and found like-minded individuals when he joined the Partisans. Moroff was usually grumpy and performed tasks begrudgingly when asked to do so. However, his rude replies in his native language were always translated by his voice-translator box into pleasant and cheerful responses in Galactic Basic Standard, a language he was normally unable to speak. He enjoyed his role as a towering gunner, carrying his blaster cannon as if it weighed nothing at all.
In order to establish vital communication with his fellow Partisans during combat, Moroff wore a vocoder mask on his mouth, translating his speech into Basic for his comrades to understand. He also carried a large backpack and wore multiple equipment pouches around his waist. During the mission on Dooma 4, he engaged Imperial forces with a blaster rifle. While operating on Jedha, Moroff was armed with a Vulk TAU-6-23 "Blastmill" rotary blaster cannon, his favorite model of heavy blaster cannon.
