Topic: Is Rothgar Deng secretly Dengar?

Common theory going around, but according to The Star Wars Book (which released in October), Dengar underwent some extreme surgeries sometime after the Galactic Civil War, The surgery supposedly left him barely recognizable.
Now a character was introduced in Rise of Skywalker, named Rothgar Deng, who has a very crude face as well as several cybernetic implants. According to the same Star Wars book, Rothgar Deng also went through some heavy cybernatic surgeries to "live and work forever".
Something else interesting, Dengar's full name according to some Legends material is "Dengar Roth", and "Rothgar Deng" seems to contain "Dengar" backwards.

So I don't know about you guys, but there's a pretty good case to make that Rothgar Deng is Dengar. But what do you guys think?

Oh! Additional Note: The "two" characters are from Corellia, and Rothdar Deng is also a bounty hunter operating under an "alias" according to The Star Wars Book.

Re: Is Rothgar Deng secretly Dengar?

I actually came online today to see about this as I love Dengar and have been watching the clone wars, finally, for the first time. I googled which episodes he would be in and ended up stumbling on this Rothgar and...... I am shocked, shocked that this is Dengar now - pretty sure I've read in a few places that Rothgar is Dengar and its now canon (I really hope I'm wrong). I think I would have been happier with him being killed off than this - he looks awful! I was so hoping he would turn up in BOBF when it comes out in Dec, now I'm dreading it! I loved reading his stories as a teenager and both Boba and Dengar meant a lot to me as characters, as sad as that is. Actually a little heart broken if this is him now.
