The Klytonians were a sentient species who had the ability to communicate with one another at a distance using natural electric fields generated by the thick scales that covered their bodies. Their home system was the Klytonia system, which was located in the Outer Rim Bheriz sector. Klytonians were present in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina on the planet Tatooine in 0 BBY when the Humans Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi sought passage offworld.
Biology and appearanceEdit
Society and cultureEdit
Members of the species were able to communicate with one another over fairly long distances by creating vibrations in their scales' electric fields.
Klytonians in the galaxyEdit
In 0 BBY, at least two Klytonians were present at the Mos Eisley Cantina on the planet Tatooine when the Humans Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi entered looking for passage to the planet Alderaan. Despite the din in the establishment, the Klytonians used their electrical fields to talk to each other across the crowded bar.

- ↑ 3.0 3.1 Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. The Klytonia system appears to be one such case. "I wouldn't get your hopes up re alien homeworlds, beyond simple stuff like the Planetnamian species getting a Planetnamia on the map or things Dan and I can account for with a relatively quick reference."
- ↑ The events of "Cantina Communications" take place during Luke Skywalker and Ben Kenobi's visit to Mos Eisley, which is depicted in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and dated to the year 0 BBY by The New Essential Chronology.
