Hulking humanoids covered in a thick coat of white fur, the Talz species is largely unknown or misunderstood by the greater galaxy at large. A representative of the Talz was first seen in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope (1977), but it would be many years before any sort of additional information came to light about the species and culture. In print, the Talz are traditionally presented as the occasional solitary individual that has somehow entered the galactic community, and little time has been spent depicting the species in any sort of native cultural setting -- that is until the 2009 season one episode of The Clone Wars, "Trespass," (written by Steven Melching and directed by Brian Kalin O'Connell) which showcased a Talz tribe on the planet of Orto Plutonia.
塔尔兹人是人形种族,身躯庞大、披着厚厚的白色皮毛。银河系大部分地区的居民都对塔尔兹人一无所知或心怀误解。塔尔兹人初次登场是在《星球大战:第四部——新的希望》(1977年)中,但此后许多年,关于该种族及其文化的更多资料始终没有得到进一步披露。在出版物中,塔尔兹人传统上一直是银河社会中偶尔出现、形单影只的种族,身世不明。几乎没有人详述过该种族的任何文化设定——直到2009年《克隆人战争》第一季第15集《非法侵入》(史蒂文·梅尔钦编剧、布赖恩·卡林·奥康奈尔导演)描绘了一支居住在奥托普卢托尼亚行星上的塔尔兹人部落为止。

The Orto Plutonian Talz
奥托普卢托尼亚的塔尔兹人

Orto Plutonia had long been a protectorate of the Pantoran moon, after Pantoran scouts searched the world and found no denizens amid its frozen features. They had missed the Talz population, which lived sequestered in the ice canyons in villages carved out of the ice walls, filled with huts made from animal skins pulled over bone-frames. The Talz lived a simple existence, somehow subsisting off the harsh environment, and using the native narglatch cats as mounts and protection.
潘托拉人探险家探索了奥托普卢托尼亚,没有在其冰封地表发现任何居民后,这颗行星就成了潘托拉卫星的保护地,延续至今。但他们漏掉了塔尔兹人。塔尔兹人隐居在冰谷里,他们在冰墙上凿出村寨,在冰洞里把兽皮盖在骨架上,搭起小屋。塔尔兹人艰苦朴素,想尽办法与险恶的环境作斗争,顽强生存。他们把当地的纳格拉奇猫当作坐骑和看门兽。

During the Clone Wars, the Pantoran Assembly requested that the Republic establish an outpost on Orto Plutonia to serve as an advanced warning station for any Separatist incursions. To that end, the Republic established Glid Station, a clone trooper outpost built within a massive ice spire. The Separatists too established a temporary base in the ice, and all this activity aggravated the Talz. They attacked the newcomers, wiping out both the Republic and Separatist outposts, proving what formidable warriors they were and the level of advantage they had in the cold weather. They left no survivors and left behind grim warnings against any would-be trespassers -- droid heads and clone helmets left perched atop spears.
克隆人战争期间,潘托拉议会请求共和国在奥托普卢托尼亚设立前哨基地,作为高级警戒站,防范分离势力的任何入侵行动。为此,共和国在巨大的冰塔中设立了克隆人前哨基地——格利德站。分离势力也在冰原上设立了一个临时基地。所有这些活动激怒了塔尔兹人。他们对外来者发动袭击,将共和国和分离势力的哨站都扫荡一空,证明自己是强大的战士,而且在寒冷天气下占尽天时地利。他们没有留下一个活口,而是把机器人头部和克隆人头盔挂在长矛尖上——对试图入侵的人发出可怕的警告。

The Jedi investigated the disappearance of their outpost and discovered the Talz village. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker were welcomed as visitors to the chieftain's hut, and Talz leader Thi-Sen, Son of Suns, explained that the Talz simply wished to be left alone on their world. Kenobi and Skywalker promised a peaceful negotiation with the Pantorans, but the bellicose Chairman Chi Cho did not want to lose claim over Orto Plutonia. First, he argued the Talz weren't intelligent. Second, he declared them the trespassers and waged war against the Talz.
绝地前来调查消失的哨站,发现了塔尔兹人的村落。欧比-旺·克诺比和阿纳金·天行者作为访客,被迎到了酋长的小屋中。塔尔兹人的首领,“太阳之子”泰-森,表达了塔尔兹人不想在自己的世界被打扰的简单愿望。克诺比和天行者许诺一定让潘托拉人与塔尔兹人和平谈判,但好战的奇·乔主席不肯放弃对奥托普卢托尼亚的控制权。首先,他否认塔尔兹人是智慧生物。其次,他指责塔尔兹人才是入侵者,对他们发动了战争。

Before the Pantoran Assembly was able to intervene, Cho led a charge of clone troopers against the Talz, which went poorly and the Talz nearly overwhelmed Cho's forces. Senator Riyo Chuchi then extended an offer of sovereignty to the Talz, allowing them to live undisturbed and alone on Orto Plutonia.
潘托拉议会还没来得及干预,乔就率克隆人部队向塔尔兹人发动了进攻。后果是灾难性的,塔尔兹人差点全歼乔的部队。丽尤·丘奇议员随后承认塔尔兹人的主权,保证不再打扰他们,允许他们在奥托普卢托尼亚独自生活。

Physiology
生理机能

The notion that the Talz are arctic beings is inherent in the creature's design in Episode IV, but did not go documented until 1989, first in Galaxy Guide 4: Alien Races by Troy Denning, published by West End Games. This guidebook established the Talz name, and confirms that their bulk and fur protect them from the elements. Their four eyes are said to be a protective evolutionary development; the larger eyes close to protect against the sunlight's glare off the ice. At night, all four eyes allow the Talz exceptional night vision.
塔尔兹人是寒带生物的概念源于该生物在《新的希望》中的造型,但直到1989年,这个概念才被载入文档,初见于由特洛伊·丹宁撰写、西末游戏出版的《银河指南4:异族》。这本指南确定了塔尔兹人的种族名,证实了其巨大的身躯和厚重的毛皮可以保护他们免受寒冻。他们的四只眼睛据说是进化出的保护机制;一对较大的眼睛白天闭上,免受冰面反射的阳光伤害,四只眼睛在夜间全部睁开,为塔尔兹人提供绝佳的夜视能力。

A curious side-step in the biology of Talz occurred in the short-story "Play it Again, Figrin D'an: The Story of Muftak and Kabe" by A.C. Crispin, published in Tales form the Mos Eisley Cantina (1995, Bantam Books). In addition to granting Muftak infrared vision, this tale gives him possible racial memories of emerging from a cocoon in a lush paradise. No other source has backed up such environs, suggesting that they are peculiar to Muftak's recollections. The cocoon was later revealed to be a larval "sac" or external womb from which the Talz emerge full-size after gestation, as detailed in The Essential Guide to Alien Species by Ann Margaret Lewis (Del Rey Books, 2001). The second edition of the book (by Lewis and Helen Keier, 2006, Del Rey Books) elaborated that the Talz are born from eggs, crawl into the sac, undergo chrysalis, and then emerge.
在《莫斯艾斯利小酒馆的故事》(1995年,班坦图书)一书中,A·C·克里斯平写的短篇小说《再来一首,菲格林·德安:穆夫塔克和卡蓓的故事》讲述了塔尔兹人一个未曾提及的奇妙生物特征。这则故事不但表现了穆夫塔克的红外夜视能力,还提到他可能有种族记忆,即在一个生机勃勃的天堂破茧而出。由于没有任何其它资料佐证这种自然环境,说明这只是穆夫塔克的独特记忆。茧后来被设定为一种幼虫“囊”或外子宫,塔尔兹人在孕育成熟后会从茧里出来,细节参见安·玛格丽特·刘易斯撰写的《异族必备指南》(2001年,德雷图书)。该书的第二版(刘易斯和海伦·谢耶尔合著,2006年,德雷图书)详述了塔尔兹人从蛋里孵化,爬入虫囊,化蛹,然后破茧而出的过程。

Cinematic Origins
电影起源

The Talz costume was built for the booth inserts shot well after the main stage photography for the cantina sequences of A New Hope. The creature shop crew nicknamed the otherwise nameless alien "Spider-Man," due to its array of eyes and furry face. It would later receive the name "Cullatran" as a temporary internal moniker, though this name would go unused before being replaced with the species name "Talz." The Talz costume was marched out again for a few notable television appearances, including "The Richard Pryor Show," "The Star Wars Holiday Special" and an anti-drunk driving public service announcement.
塔尔兹人的道具服是为《新的希望》小酒馆片段主舞台摄制阶段后的隔间插入镜头制作的。生物制作组把这个无名异族人戏称为“蜘蛛侠”,因为它长着两排眼睛而且满脸绒毛。后来,它得到了一个临时内部名称——“卡拉特兰”,但这个名字尚未使用就被种族名“塔尔兹人”取代了。塔尔兹人的道具服后来又在几出有名的电视节目中登场,包括喜剧《理查德·普赖尔秀》、《星球大战假日特集》和一部抵制酒后驾车的公益宣传片。

衍生宇宙

The first Expanded Universe information added to this alien character came in Galaxy Guide 1: A New Hope by Grant Boucher (1989, West End Games). This was the first source to give Muftak a name, but it stopped short of identifying his species. A key element of Muftak's biography was that he did not know where he came from or what species he was. This established the idea that Talz are rare and infrequently encountered, a notion that strains a bit with the inclusion of more Talz in this period in the timeline and earlier. For example, in Decipher's Star Wars Customizable Card Game, a Tatooine expansion (2001) added a second Talz to the cantina -- Caldera Righim. That two Talz barflies frequented the same cantina and yet not know of one another's existence requires a certain suspension of disbelief.
关于这名异族角色的第一份衍生宇宙资料来自格兰特·鲍彻撰写的《银河指南1:新的希望》(1989年,西末游戏)。这是为穆夫塔克定名的最早出处,但它没有进一步介绍其种族。穆夫塔克自传的一大特点就是他不知道自己来自何处或属于什么种族。这引出了一种观点,即塔尔兹人数目稀少,非常罕见。随着更多的塔尔兹人出现在时间线的这个时期或更早期,这种观点有点站不住脚。例如,在Decipher的“《星球大战》可改造卡片游戏”里,塔图因扩展集(2001年)向小酒馆里又加了一名塔尔兹人——卡尔德拉·赖姆。两个塔尔兹人酒鬼频频光顾同一家酒馆,却不知道对方的存在,这多少有点让人难以置信。

The same year Muftak was established, a second galaxy guide, Galaxy Guide 4: Alien Races by Troy Denning, named the species and began establishing its history. Here, the species is said to hail from Alzoc III, an icy planet discovered by the Empire. The Empire subjected the Talz to slavery and neglected to include them in any galactic registry, meaning that the Talz species went undocumented. Again, this description doesn't match more recent sources that show Talz as part of the larger galactic community earlier than the time of the Empire. The tendency of artists to reference more well-known aliens seen in the Star Wars films has meant that the Talz now appears in the background of stories set thousands of years in the past, like the Knights of the Old Republic comics series from Dark Horse Comics. The slave trade and the species' subjugation by the Empire, however, leaves open many opportunities for Talz to spread across the galaxy, so in stories set during and after the time of the Empire, frequent Talz spottings are no cause for continuity concerns.
在穆夫塔克被定名的同年,第二本银河指南,即特洛伊·丹宁撰写的《银河指南4:异族》,为该种族定名,开始设定其历史。在这本书里,这个种族来自阿尔佐克三号行星——一颗被帝国发现的冰雪行星。帝国征服塔尔兹人,把他们当作奴隶,却没有把他们编入任何银河系记录,这意味塔尔兹人没有被登记在案。这一描述再次与较新的资料产生矛盾,新资料显示塔尔兹人早在帝国成立前就成了银河社会的一份子。艺术家们倾向于在作品中重提《星球大战》电影里更为人熟知的异族人,这导致背景设定在数千年前的故事里现在都会出现塔尔兹人,比如黑马漫画的《旧共和国武士》系列漫画。不过,该种族被帝国征服后,奴隶贸易使之有大量机会散布到银河各地,因此,对于时间设定在帝国时代或帝国时代之后的故事,塔尔兹人的频繁出现不会产生衔接性问题。

Additional details regarding Talz culture came to light in The Essential Guide to Alien Species by Ann Margaret Lewis (Del Rey Books, 2001). Talz society is said to be clan-based, and possesses a sophisticated system of resource distribution that ensures no Talz community goes without. The second edition (Del Rey Books, 2006) expands this and notes that Talz have trouble with concepts of ownership, and terms such as his, hers, mine or yours.
安·玛格丽特·刘易斯撰写的《异族必备指南》(德雷图书,2001年)披露了更多塔尔兹人的文化细节。塔尔兹人的社会以氏族为基础,具有一套复杂的分配体系,确保不让任何一个塔尔兹人社区资源短缺。该书的第二版(德雷图书,2006年)扩充了这一条条目,指出塔尔兹人缺乏所有权概念,没有“他的”、“她的”、“我的”、“你的”等词汇。

The Talz history figured in the backstory of Pter Thanas, a character in The Truce at Bakura by Kathy Tyers (1994, Bantam Books). Thanas was a promising Imperial who ruined his career by refusing the slaughter a Talz village. In fact, he respected the Talz workers under his control and increased their food rations. This story is expanded in The Truce of Bakura Sourcebook by Kathy Tyers and Eric S. Trautmann (1996, West End Games).
塔尔兹人的历史还被加入到普特·塔纳斯的背景故事中。塔纳斯是小说《巴库拉休战》(1994年,班坦图书)里的人物。这本小说由凯西·泰尔斯创作。塔纳斯是一名前途光明的帝国军人,由于拒绝屠杀一个塔尔兹人的村庄而断送了前程。事实上,他很尊重手下的塔尔兹人劳工,还增加了他们的食物定额。这个故事在凯西·泰尔斯和埃里克·S·特劳特曼合著的《巴库拉休战资料集》(1996年,西末游戏)中得到扩展。

One of the most well known Expanded Universe Talz characters is Foul Moudama, a Jedi Knight shown in the second set of Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series cartoons (2005, Cartoon Network). That a Talz had entered into the Jedi ranks before the species' supposed discovery has raised a number of theories regarding his origins, but nothing has been firmly established. The only source to explore his background, his databank entry (first written by Pablo Hidalgo in 2005), downplays his origins by stating that they are known to few.
衍生宇宙中最著名的塔尔兹人角色之一就是福尔·莫达马。他是一名绝地武士,出现于《星球大战:克隆人战争》动画迷你剧的第二场(2005年,卡通频道)。一名塔尔兹人,在其种族应该还没有被发现时就进入了绝地组织,催生了许多关于其身世的理论,但没有一种确凿无疑。唯一涉及其背景的出处,即其“资料库”词条(最早由巴勃罗·伊达尔戈写于2005年),语焉不详地称其身世鲜为人知。

Collecting Talz
收集塔尔兹人

Though Muftak is one of the more memorable aliens in the Mos Eisley Cantina, he was not afforded an action figure until 1998, when he and Kabe were made available as an Internet exclusive figure. That same mold became the basis of a Foul Moudama figure in 2006. Long before that, a metal figurine of Muftak was available in the Mos Eisley Cantina Miniatures Set made by West End Games in 1989. Modern plastic gaming figures of Talz have been included in the Alliance and Empire expansion from Wizards of the Coast in 2007.
尽管穆夫塔克是莫斯艾斯利小酒馆里较难忘的异族人之一,但直到1998年,他才有自己的活动人偶。当时,他和卡蓓被制成了互联网独享人偶。2006年的福尔·莫达马人偶以同一个模子为基础。早在那之前,穆夫塔克有过一个金属小人像,出自西末游戏公司在1989年制作的“莫斯艾斯利小酒馆微缩场景套装”。塔尔兹人的现代塑料游戏人偶包含在威世智在2007年发售的“同盟与帝国”扩展包中。
