Twi'leks were a humanoid species originating from the planet Ryloth. Their distinctive colorful skin and lekkus were familiar sights anywhere in the galaxy. The beauty of female Twi'leks was well known throughout the Galaxy, and as a result many were sold into slavery, becoming dancers or status symbols.

Physiology and Culture

The two most striking features of a Twi'lek were their broad range of skin coloration within the species and set of head tails. The head tails, also called "lekku", protruded down the back of the skull and contained part of a Twi'lek's brain. A Twi'lek's head tails served many purposes in their daily lives and culture, storing water and being used as erogenous zones. The Twi'lek's native language of Twi'leki was spoken using a combination of words and subtle movements of the lekku.

The range of possible Twi'lek skin colors was extremely diverse, including green, orange, brown, yellow, blue, white, and purple - all in varying shades and hues. Twi'leks of these skin colors were referred to as Ryloth Twi'leks, with green being the most common color. Other types of Twi'leks included the particularly rare turquoise-skinned Twi'leks, known as Rutian Twi'leks, and the rarest red pigment of the Lethan Twi'leks.

The natural grace and exotic beauty of the Twi'leks made them a popular target among slave traders. Regardless of how it came about, many Twi'leks lived as slaves or entertainers and were considered status symbols, especially the females of rarer skin hues - the Rutian and Lethan Twi'leks.

Role in LotJ

Twilek are calculating, pragmatic and charismatic beings. They prefer to duck in the shadows and from a safe hiding place, observe, plan and profit from the outcome.

Many Twi'leks lived their lives as merchants, diplomats or even criminals, the race does have a proud and honorable warrior tradition.

Twilek can speak Galactic Basic.
