this was the only species of thranta to survive the destruction of the planet Alderaan. The reason for this was that it had been exported to the gas giant of Bespin, which was one of the few worlds where the common thranta actually survived away from Alderaan. A steel-gray creature with dappled dorsal pattern and a creamy-white underbelly, the common thranta had triangular wings and a hevay, four-lobed tail for stability. Because of its origins and current location, this thranta is sometimes called the Alderaan thranta or the Bespon thranta. It was the smallest of the four major subspecies of thranta, capable of carrying just a rider and passenger.
