Falleen were a sentient species able to project powerful pheromones. During the Clone Wars, the Black Sun criminal syndicate was run by a cabal of Falleen nobles, Ziton Moj, from their fortress on Mustafar.
Biology and appearanceEdit
The Falleen were a sentient species of reptillian humanoids who had a distinctive alien appearance. They were distinguished by their mottled green skin, ridged skulls, and their long, black hair which they typically wore in ponytails. Falleen exuded powerful pheromones which they used to attract mates.
During the Clone Wars, a cabal of Falleen nobles led the Black Sun criminal syndicate, which flourished while law enforcement declined as the Jedi focused on battling the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Black Sun became notorious in the lawless Outer Rim Territories and elsewhere, and its Falleen leadership operated out of a well-defended fortress on Mustafar. Xomit Grunseit led the cabal until Darth Maul ultimately usurped control of Black Sun, and installed the leg-breaking lieutenant Ziton Moj as its ruler.
Black Sun was also involved in an underground dispute with the Pyke Syndicate, which led to Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos investigated a kidnapping by the Pykes. Ventress coerced a Falleen guard on Mustafar, leading him to believe his powerful pheromones had worked on her, and she and Vos strong-armed him into giving up information on the Pykes. The pair infiltrated the Black Sun fortress, fighting more Falleen to reach the kidnapped family.
During the reign of the Galactic Empire, Falleen like other alien species such as Umbarans and Neimoidians, were typically the butt of running jokes at Imperial Academies including the Royal Imperial Academy on Coruscant. At this time, the Falleen Ango Croom led the Varluk Organization. A number of Falleen worked as overseers in MaDall's slaving operation on Oon, and treated Sabine Wren roughly when she posed as a slave to infiltrate the operation. She inspired an uprising against the slavers, and the Falleen guards were attacked and overpowered.
