Kintan was a planet[4] located in the Hutt Space region of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories[1] that was the homeworld of the Nikto species, which was divided into two subspecies: the green-skinned Nikto known as Kadas'sa'Nikto, and the red-skinned Nikto known as Kajain'sa'Nikto.[4] It was conquered by the Hutt Cartel, which was controlled by the Hutts from the neighboring world of Nal Hutta, who turned the Nikto into slaves or vassals.[1] Klaatu, a male Kadas'sa'Nikto gambler who worked as a henchman for the crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure, was from this world.[5] Creatures known as Kintan striders, whose appearance was used as a piece in the game dejarik, were from this world.[2][6]
