Futhark was a form of writing based on ovals and circles. Used on the planet of Naboo as its formal alphabet, the symbols were mainly used on spacecraft, such as the N-1 starfighter, and controls to distinguish different features.
Futhark was the formal written version of the Naboo language, and was derived from the Royal Script of Grizmallt. The system was used in a regal fashion on Naboo, but common folk largely found it hard to decipher, as its characters all had similar shapes. Futhork was the informal writing.
Behind the scenesEdit
The name "Futhark" is derived from the first six letters of the Nordic variant runic alphabet—F, U, Þ (a letter representing the dental fricative th), A, R, and K—used in Scandinavia before the Latin alphabet was introduced there.
