Description: Wat Tambor was a male Skakoan who was the foreman of the Techno Union and an executive of Baktoid Armor Workshop. During the Separatist Crisis, he pledged the Techno Union's resources to the Confederacy of Independent Systems, earning himself a seat on the Separatist Council during the Clone Wars. In the conflict's early stages, Tambor was appointed emir of Ryloth and supervised its occupation by the Separatists, which was fiercely resisted by local Twi'lek freedom fighters led by Cham Syndulla. After defying orders to abandon Ryloth when the tide of battle turned against the Separatists, Tambor was left behind and captured by the Galactic Republic. He was briefly imprisoned on Coruscant before being liberated later in the conflict.
As the Clone Wars escalated, Wat Tambor took an interest in the captive ARC trooper CT-1409, who had been captured during a battle in the Citadel but was presumed dead by the Republic. Tambor kept an unconscious Echo in a stasis chamber and managed to extract information from Echo's mind about a strategy algorithm devised by the Clone Captain CT-7567. While officially professing the Techno Union's neutrality, Tambor secretly sold the algorithm to the Separatist Admiral Trench, who used it to great effect during a campaign to invade the Republic world of Anaxes. Tambor's dealings with the Separatists were exposed by a Republic infiltration team consisting of Rex, Clone Force 99, and the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker.
During the final days of the Clone Wars, Wat Tambor and the rest of the Separatist Council relocated from the planet Utapau to Mustafar, where they were slaughtered by Darth Vader. Following his demise, the newly-formed Galactic Empire assumed control of the Techno Union's assets.
Personality and traits
Standing 1.98 meters in height, Wat Tambor had green skin and black eyes.
Strict and inventive, Wat Tambor had a mind for war machines and was one of the original and most fervent Separatist leaders, having pledging his loyalty and the Techno Union's battle droid armies to the Confederacy of Independent Systems after being attracted to the movement by Dooku's promises of unlimited pursuit of profits. Despite declaring the Techno Union neutral during the Clone Wars, Tambor was an active supporter of the Separatist cause who channeled substantial resources and information to their war effort. On one occasion, he used the drugged clone trooper CT-1409 to provide Admiral Trench with CT-7567's strategy algorithm, which greatly assisted the Separatist campaign to conquer the Republic world of Anaxes. As a businessman, he was concerned with protecting the Techno Union's profit margins and minimizing losses to his company by all means necessary. His concern with profits led him to hide news of Echo's escape, a catastrophic decision which led to the Republic victory on Anaxes.
As both a businessman and military commander, Tambor was known for his ruthlessness and disregard for the lives of other sentient beings. In an attempt to intimidate Anakin Skywalker and Clone Force 99, Tambor used an organic decimator to vaporize a captive Poletec, a native of Skako Minor. During the Separatist occupation of Ryloth, many Twi'leks starved under his rule. During a battle in Nabat, he gave orders for Twi'lek civilians to be used as "living shields" to deter the Republic and Jedi forces. Despite his disregard for sentient lives, Tambor was visibly upset when Skywalker and Clone Force 99 destroyed his laboratory along with its machines and years of research.
At the bidding of Count Dooku, Tambor exercised a "scorched earth" policy towards Ryloth by looting the planet's valuables in order to show the galaxy the "cost" of a Republic victory. However, his avarice cost him dearly when he refused to evacuate Ryloth until the last shipment of valuables had been shipped; a decision which contributed to his capture by Master Windu.
