The Chekkoo clan was a Rodian clan on the planet Rodia. The clan was based in the Chekkoo Enclave on the continent of Betu. Members of the Chekkoo clan were known to be skilled in manufacturing weapons, armor, and other related munitions. Laneet Chekkoo was a member of this clan.
During the reign of the Galactic Empire, the Chekkoo clan opposed Rodia's ruling Chattza clan. Princess Leia Organa believed that the clan would be willing to rebel against the Empire just to spite the Chattza clan. Following the Battle of Yavin, Luke Skywalker went on a mission to Betu to recruit the Chekkoo clan into the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
