From the dry, rocky world of Ryloth, Twi'leks have made a place for themselves along the Galaxy. These tall, thin humanoids include a variety of distinct subraces, but all are instantly recognizable by the tentacular "Head-Tails" (Called Lekku) that protrude from the backs of their heads.


Sly, calculating beings, Twi'leks prefer to avoid trouble and stick to the shadows until an opportunity to act without undue danger to themselves presents itself. Their entrepreneurial spirit frequently leads them to positions of influence, and Twi'lek corporate executives and ambassadors are no less common than unscrupulous Twi'lek freighter captains and crime lords.
