Basic info
First appearance: Return of the Jedi
Summary
Klatooinians were a humanoid species from the planet Klatooine, located in the Si'Klaata Cluster. For most of their history, they were closely associated with the Hutts, as criminal henchmen, soldiers, and slaves. By the time of the Galactic Civil War, however, some Klatooinians began to break away from their servitude. The Klatooinians revered the Hutts, whose natural lifespan spanned several centuries, as near-gods - possibly even the Ancients of Klatooinian myth. In fact, the Fountain of Ancients was renamed the Fountain of Hutt Ancients. Under Hutt rule, the Klatooinian elders were allowed to rule Klatooine, but all off-world concerns, such as the infamous Klatooinian Trade Guild, were wholly under Hutt control. In 44 ABY, damage to the Fountain of Ancients by Sith operatives served as a pretense for the Klatoonians to declare the Treaty of Vontor breached by the Hutt, thus voiding their enslavement. Widespread slave revolts marked the Klatoonian uprising, which was part of a larger anti-slavery movement in the Galaxy at the time.
