Trandoshans were large, reptilian humanoids from the planet Trandosha (or Dosha). They had supersensitive eyes that could see into the infrared range and the ability to regenerate lost limbs when they were young. They would also periodically shed their skin. The Trandoshans were a warlike species who allied early with the Empire, taking Wookiees as slaves.
Physiology and History
Trandoshan are strong, reptilian humanoids ranging from 1.6 to 2.1 meters tall. Their scale hides range from sandy brown to glossy green. They have three thick-clawed fingers that lack the dexterity of most humanoid species. Their society revolves around hunting and they worship a female diety who rewards Trandoshans for their success or failure in the hunt.
The Trandoshans originated on Trandosha, also known as Dosha or Hsskor. It was in the same star system as Kashyyyk, the homeworld of the Wookiees. In 7,000 BBY, the Trandoshans joined the Galactic Republic. Despite this, they were only indirectly represented in the Galactic Senate by the Wookiee Yarua, much to the Trandoshans' dismay. Trandoshan terrorists then attempted to assassinate Yarua in 32 BBY. Subsequent relations between the species have deteriorated since.
After the Clone Wars, the Trandoshans suggested to the Empire that they use the Wookiees as slaves. The Empire, seeing cheap labor agreed, and hired the Trandoshans to lead slaving raids on Kashyyyk and locate runaway slaves.
Role in LotJ
Trandoshans are aggressive, selfish and brutal beings. Though they value credits over friendship, the honor of the hunt obliges them to a life-debt if another saves them from certain death. Trandoshans crave the thrill of battle. Some Trandoshan leave Dosh to become soldiers or mercenaries. Their warrior skills and ruthlessness make them valued muscle for hire throughout the galaxy.
Because of Wookiees enslavement by Tradoshans, there is NO CHANCE of co-operation between the two species on any level.
Trandoshan can speak Galactic Basic with harsh grunts and growls.
