Dok-Ondar is an Ithorian collector who operates the Den of Antiquities in Black Spire Outpost. The Den of Antiquities is full of priceless treasures that Dok has collected over the years. Rumor has it Dok is infamous for trading any treasure for the right price. He has a vast network of employees that include scavengers, mercenaries, and even bounty hunters that find the artifacts that make up his collection. He is the oldest living resident of the Black Spire Outpost. He is one of the few that Oga Garra leaves alone. 

Who is Dok-Ondar?

Dok-Ondar keeps a low profile despite the questionable dealings he is rumored to be involved in. Dok collects any and all rare artifacts from throughout the galaxy. His shop’s upper floor and walls are covered with priceless treasures that any collector would die to get their hands on. Dok’s collection includes holocrons, kyber crystals, a Mythosaur skull, the Medal of Bravery, and a baby sarlacc. Dok-Ondar even has a collection of legacy lightsabers from Jedi heroes like Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano and infamous Sith like Darth Vader and Asajj Ventress. 

Other Appearances

Dok-Ondar has made several brief appearances in the Star Wars Universe. He is mostly mentioned by name or by reputation. The first mention of Dok is in the movie Solo: A Star Wars Story. While onboard Dryden Vos’s yacht Han Solo and Qi’ra are reunited after years of being apart. They are walking through the party crowd when Qi’ra stops and asks a member of the wait staff if Dok-Ondar is being taken care of. He doesn’t get any screen time and that is the only mention we get about him. 

Dok also shows up in several Star Wars novels. His first appearance was in the Kevin Shinick novel Force Collector. A Force-sensitive teenager named Karr Nuq Sin travels to Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities in search of Jedi artifacts. Karr has the power of Force Echo which allows him to have visions caused by touching objects. Dok presents him with a rare artifact that leaves Karr with more questions about his family’s past.

Dok is also featured in two other Star Wars novels Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire by Delilah S. Dawson and A Crash of Fates by Zoraida Cordova. The story of how he acquired some of his antiquities can be found in the Galaxy’s Edge comic mini-series. In each comic of the series, Dok entrusts one of his hired hands including Han Solo to search the galaxy and find priceless artifacts in exchange for money and favors. 

Overall Thoughts

Dok-Ondar is one of the most interesting characters I have come across. He has a facade of being a legit business owner but is secretly conducting an illegal business as a crime boss rivaled only by Oga Garra herself. He uses his money and influence to get what he wants. 

The Den of Antiquities is one of my favorite places to go inside Galaxy’s Edge. Every time I go inside I spot something new. As an added bonus inside the shop, you can actually see Dok-Ondar. He is hard at work behind the counter muttering to himself.
