Figrin D'an is a native of Clak'dor VII, a boggy world the result of a chemical war. The Bith are highly advanced on the evolutionary scale, and have complex brains. The regions in their brains for aptitude in the arts is well developed. As for their bodies, their larger lidless eyes can focus on tiny details for hours. Their respiratory system extracts every usable molecule from each breath. The Bith's mating is arranged by computer to filter out possible birth defects.
Figrin D'an gathered five other Biths to play with him in his intergalactic jizz band, "Figrin D'an and The Modal Nodes". Eventually Figrin and his band came to Tatooine, where they got hired by Jabba the Hutt. Jabba considered them his "favorite band", but he has had many in the past. They finally did incur the wrath of Jabba when they decided to play at a wedding reception. Jabba became angry at this. At the reception, Jabba's thugs were scattered around, when the bride and groom got into an argument, and Imperial Stormtroopers arrived.
As they all escaped, they saved the life of an ugly human bartender, Wuher. Wuher brought them to a cantina owned by a Wookie, Chalmun. Chalmun hoped that live music would bring more peaceful locals into his cantina, so he offered them a two-season contract. They agreed, hoping to make enough money to escape from the planet and Jabba soon enough. While playing at the cantina, the band witnessed the brawl involving Dr. Evazan, Ponda Baba, Luke Skywalker and Ben Kenobi. The band soon left, and is now lost in the millions of lounge clubs and revues throughout the galaxy.
