- "Your buddy here was about to be turned into orange goo. He picked a fight witha Dug. An especially dangerous Dug."
- ―Anakin Skywalker on Tatooine
Dugs were a species native to the planet Malastare with a well-deserved reputation for unnecessary brutality and mean-spiritedness.
Physiology and Culture
Dugs were slender, powerfully built beings with a somewhat humanoid build. Their high gravity homeworld Malastare gave Dugs a unique method of walking. Their strong arms were used as legs, and their lower limbs were used as arms.
Dugs had smooth skin, which hung loosely around their necks, only to inflate during mating season calls. They also possessed fin-like ears and pronounced snouts. They lived mainly in the forests of the western continent of their homeworld in primitive tree villages called "tree thorps". On their homeworld Malastare, the Dugs were arboreal beings, brachiating among the canopies with alarming speed.
Dugs have been brutally repressed by the Gran who colonized Malastare. The vast majority of Dugs were little more than labourers toiling for the enrichment of the Gran. With the species excluded from much of the power and money on Malastare, many Dugs, such as Sebulba, turned to podracing. In all other areas, the Dugs were exploited and disenfranchized.
Dugs often felt the need to throw around their strength in bids to establish dominance. As a result, they were known for their ill-tempered demeanor, and many were little more than bullying thugs.
Role in LotJ
Dugs are adversarial, derogatory, selfish and bullying. They will push around those weaker than them and act subservient to their superiors. Dugs are fringers and scoundrels with phenomenal piloting skills. They could not be bothered with diplomacy.
Because of Dugs history with Gran, there is NO CHANCE of co-operation between the two on any level.
They can speak Galactic Basic but generally refuse to, forcing other aliens to learn their language.
