Once upon a time, during the war between the Hutts and Xim the Despot, the Treaty of Vontor was drawn between the Hutt families and three major species in the Si’Klaata Cluster, namely the Klatooinians, the Niktos and the Vodrans. After winning the battle, these species became permanently subservient to the Hutts.
These are aliens that only appeared in Return of the Jedi, so no Vodrans. Sorry, Vodrans.
Also known as the Day The Earth Stood Still-referenced aliens.
- “Nikto” originally referred to the Red Niktos (Kajain’sa’Nikto) that appeared in Return of the Jedi. Eventually it became the name of the entire species.
- “Klaatu” originally referred to the green-skinned skiff guard in Return of the Jedi. The name stuck over the years and the species was renamed Green Nikto (Kadas’sa’Nikto).
- “Barada” still refers to the skiff guard and the head of Jabba’s vehicle pool. His species was officially named Klatooinian.
