Ryloth

Home of the Twi'leks

Details

Description

Ryloth is the principal planet in the Ryloth system located in the Outer Rim near Tatooine. It is home to the Twi'leks, a humanoid species with two large, fleshy head-tails growing from their skulls. The Twi'leks call these prehensile appendages lekku and can communicate through subtle lekku gestures, although they also speak Twi'leki. During the Clone Wars, scheming Separatist warlords blockaded and invaded Ryloth, hoping to steal its riches.

The rotund Senator Orn Free Taa represented Ryloth in the Galactic Senate. To many, Orn Free Taa is a bloated example of the corruption rampant on Coruscant. While the people of Ryloth toiled to scratch out a meager living, he wallowed in a pampered life of cosmopolitan excess.
