Dok-Ondar’s connection to the Dark Legends book is interesting. Disney is slowly adding more content containing Galaxy’s Edge references. Dark Legends is a collection of scary tales for kids by George Mann. The book contains seven short stories geared toward a younger audience that have more of a spooky twist than most Star Wars books have. The second story in the book features Dok-Ondar and his Den of Antiquities.  The story lets readers know that not all the artifacts in Dok’s collection are just fun to look at.

Buyer Beware

Buyer Beware is the second story in the new Dark Legends book. The story begins on Batuu in Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. An ambassador named Slokin is innocently browsing Dok’s vast collection when he stumbles upon a unique artifact. The artifact that caught Slokin’s eye is a mask. In the book, the mask is described as black and slender, and filigreed with the finest gold. Slokin ultimately says it reminds him of a skull.

Slokin is so taken with the mask that he decides to buy it. If you know Dok-Ondar, he is not one to turn down a good price. Dok may skate the line on ethics sometimes but he is truthful. Dok informs Slokin that the mask may be cursed. There also might be consequences for the unworthy if they try to harness its power. 

The Hunt Begins

On our last trip to Galaxy’s Edge, we stopped by Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities and began the search for the mask. We did not have much to go on besides the brief description and illustration from the book. Since the reopening of the park, the crowds inside Dok’s are much smaller so being able to see the upper balcony with all the artifacts on display is much easier.

I started looking for anything that resembled a mask. I took my time and scanned each section to see if I could find it. I also asked a Cast Member working in the store if they knew anything about it. Unfortunately, I was not able to find it. I was really hoping that the book and the store were more connected. Hopefully, Disney notices that visitors would like to see these things on display and make more of an effort to showcase them. 

I have read Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire by Delilah S. Dawson and in that book Vi Moradi goes to Dok-Ondar’s to obtain a disguise to hide from the First Order. She ends up purchasing a mask worn previously Boushh the bounty hunter. The mask may be more recognizable as Princess Leia’s disguise in Return of the Jedi. The mask is on display at Dok-Ondar’s.

There are so many things to look at on the upper balcony and on the walls at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities. We have spotted Ezra Bridger’s helmet from Star Wars Rebels on the wall after Sabine Wren custom painted it for him. Dok also has the Mandalorian helmet and Amban phase-pulse blaster hanging on the wall behind the counter. Guests can also see General Grievous’s cape. Dok-Ondar’s connection to the Dark Legends book helps tie Galaxy’s Edge more closely to the Star Wars universe.

Make sure when you visit Galaxy’s Edge that you stop by Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities and see what treasures you can spot from Star Wars history. You might be surprised at some of the things you see.
