Short-Range Communication: Weequays of the same clan are capable of communicating with one another through complex pheromones. Aside from Jedi sensing abilities, no other species are known to be able to sense this form of communication. This form is as complex and clear to them as speech is to other species.
Tough Leathery Skin: Weequays have tough leathery skin which gives them some resistance to blaster fire, giving a +2 bonus against Energy Weapons.
Houk Rivalry: Though the recent Houk-Weequay conflicts have been officially resolved, there still exists a high degree of animosity between the two species.

Description: Rintel Aren was a Weequay male pilot who served as a guard to the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure. In 4 ABY, he was one of five guards assigned to accompany a trio of Jabba's prisoners on board a Bantha-II cargo skiff to the Great Pit of Carkoon, where the prisoners would be fed to a sarlacc. Upon reaching the pit, the prisoner Luke Skywalker used a Jedi mind trick to make Aren remove his iron manacles after the pilot and fellow guard Pagetti Rook selected Skywalker to be the first prisoner to be executed.
After Jabba ordered Rook to push Skywalker into the pit, the Jedi leapt back onto the skiff and attacked the guards with a lightsaber. After the Jedi killed Rook, Aren became enraged and attacked him with an ax, but Skywalker dodged the blow and struck the Weequay with the lightsaber, sending him plunging into the sarlacc's maw.
The Weequay pilot Rintel Aren was a seasoned warrior who served for many years as a guard in the palace of the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure on the desert planet Tatooine. In 4 ABY, he was selected as one of Jabba's fiercest guards to accompany a trio of prisoners to their execution at the Great Pit of Carkoon. The prisonersâ€” the Jedi Luke Skywalker and the smugglers Han Solo and Chewbaccaâ€”were transported from the palace to the pit on a Bantha-II cargo skiff piloted by the Nikto Vedain, which also carried Aren and fellow guards Pagetti Rook, Velken Tezeri, Kithaba and "Tamtel Skreej," the latter of whom was in fact Lando Calrissian, a disguised ally of the prisoners.
Upon reaching its destination, the skiff carrying the prisoners came to a halt above the pit, which contained a sarlacc that the prisoners would be fed too. Rook and Aren selected Skywalker as the first of the prisoners to be executed and pushed him toward the plank extended from the skiff's edge over the sarlacc. Skywalker then used a mind trick to guide Aren into removing the iron manacles binding the Jedi's wrists before Rook pushed the prisoner again toward the plank.
Jabba, who had traveled alongside the skiff on his sail barge Khetanna in order to view the executions, then offered the prisoners a chance to beg for mercy before they were pushed in. Solo refused and Skywalker in turn offered Jabba a chance to free him and his allies or die. Amused, Jabba ordered that Skywalker be pushed to the edge of the plank, and then off into the pit. Rook used his BD-1 Cutter vibro-ax to force Skywalker off, but the Jedi caught the edge of the plank as he dropped and then sprung over Rook's head back onto the skiff. Aboard the sail barge, Skywalker's astromech droid, R2-D2, had launched the Jedi's lightsaber into the air, which Skywalker caught upon landing and used to immediately attack Aren and his companions.
With no weapon in hand, the Weequay pilot ducked back away from Skywalker as the former prisoner knocked Kithaba and then Tezeri overboard. Skywalker then killed Rook before facing Aren, who expertly jabbed at the Jedi with an ax; however, Skywalker dodged the blow by stepping aside and then spun around to deliver a fatal blow to Aren, knocking the screaming Weequay overboard directly into the maw of the sarlacc. Skywalker and his allies ultimately defeated Jabba's remaining guards and killed the Hutt, before destroying the Khetanna and escaping aboard the skiff.
Personality and traits
Aren and the other Weequay who served Jabba were not among his smartest employees, but were fierce, dedicated and hardworking. Aren and Rook were amongst his fiercest guards, with Aren being the tougher looking of the two. Skywalker thought the pair could be siblings, although he was initially unsure of Aren's gender. After the death of Rook, Aren was enraged by his comrades death while attacking Skywalker. He had brown skin, brown hair, and black eyes.
Aren used a cruel-looking ax while fighting Skywalker. He wore a light brown jerkin with dark brown pants and black boots. His outfit also included a brown belt with a holster.
