The Dowutin were a species of large humanoids that hailed from Dowut, a Core World.[5] They were known for their mercenaries.[1] Grummgar, a member of this species, was present at Maz Kanata's castle with the spy Bazine Netal just before the First Order attacked.[10] Another Dowutin was the Ninth Sister, who originally had ties with the Jedi Order[11] before joining Emperor Palpatine's Inquisitorius program.[8]
