Geonosians were a winged, insectoid species native to the planet Geonosis that created nests in large, spire-like colonies on their homeworld.[4] Geonosians were a caste-based species, and each hive was led by a queen. The queen laid eggs for the hive, and provided orders to the public leaders of Geonosis.[9] Queen Karina the Great was able to control sentient beings, including her own Geonosians, with brain worms.[6]

During the reign of Archduke Poggle the Lesser, Geonosis became a member of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Separatists used the Geonosians to create the Separatist Droid Army. This eventually led to a large battle between the Galactic Republic and the Separatists on Geonosis. The Geonosians were the ones responsible for creating the plans for the Death Star.[4][3] Following the Clone Wars, their homeworld was sterilized by the Galactic Empire, nearly exterminating the native Geonosian population.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

A termite infestation in George Lucas' house inspired the Geonosians.[10] The sounds of Geonosians were created from mixed recordings of mating penguins and flying foxes in Australia.[11]
