Description: Twi'leks, occasionally referred to as Rylothians, were a tall humanoid species whose most striking feature was a pair of long tentacles protruding from their skull, called lekku. They hailed from the planet of Ryloth, in the Outer Rim Territories, and female Twi'lek were often exported offworld as slaves.

Biology and appearance

Twi'leks were a species of tall humanoids whose skin spanned a vast array of colors, including white, orange, yellow, green, pink, blue, purple, and red. Their most distinctive feature was the pair of prehensile tentacles that sprouted from the crown or base of their skulls, known as lekku, or headtails. Although Twi'leks normally had two lekku, some individuals had four.

The species had two sexes, male and female. While males had ears with lobes resembling those of humans, females had cone-shaped hearing organs, found in the same place on the head. Although Twi'leks naturally had blunt teeth, males typically sharpened them to points.

Twi'leks were usually thin, although corpulent individuals were known to exist. Under normal circumstances, they generally had a higher body temperature than other humanoid species.

Twi'leks and humans could breed to create a hybrid of the two species, such as when shortly before the death of Kanan Jarrus, he and Hera Syndulla conceived a son who was born after the liberation of Lothal, which Syndulla lived to participate in.

Society and culture

The Twi'leks had a language of their own, called Twi'leki, which combined verbal sounds and an elaborate and subtle sign language using their lekku. Twi'lek's lekku could be moved to create gestures that meant things such as hello or goodbye. For example, both lekku tips crossed twice meant "I Love You".Twi'leks were capable of speaking Galactic Basic, many with a noticeable accent; though it was possible for some to lose this accent if away from Ryloth for an extended period of time, it could still resurface. For example, Hera Syndulla lapsed back into the common Twi'leki accent during an argument with her father and also used it consciously when passing herself off as a slave.

Twi'leks in the galaxy

Since female Twi'leks were regarded as graceful and beautiful beings, many of them were forced into a life of slavery at the hands of the galaxy's wealthy and powerful. Other Twi'leks, however, found themselves in positions of power; Bib Fortuna served as the majordomo to the crime lord Jabba the Hutt for decades, Aayla Secura was a Jedi Knight of the Jedi Order, and Senator Orn Free Taa represented his homeworld Ryloth in the Galactic Republic's Senate and later the Imperial Senate. Due to their frequent use as slaves, Twi'lek could move surreptitiously through places an army could not penetrate. Because of that, some found employment as undercover agents.

Cham Syndulla was a leader of the Twi'lek Resistance during the Clone Wars and later became the leader of the Free Ryloth movement. His daughter Hera Syndulla also became the leader of the Spectres and later became Phoenix Leader in the Phoenix Squadron, a member of the rebellion and eventually reaching the rank of General.
