This article is about the venomous creature. You may be looking for the order of assassins.
"Be careful. They're very poisonous."
Jango Fett[src]

Kouhuns were small, multi-legged arthropods from the jungle planet of Indoumodo that were able to deliver a deadly venom to their victims. The lethal creatures were sometimes employed by assassins to poison targets.

BiologyEdit

Kouhuns hailed from the jungle planet of Indoumodo, although they were adaptable enough to thrive on almost any world.[3] Able to grow to a length of thirty centimeters, the kouhun had a segmented carapace and stingers on the front and rear of its body that could deliver poison[1] from the creature's venom gland. Kouhuns crawled on multiple legs, and could slink their way across almost any surface.[3] They were known for their ability to evade security, and their venom, once injected into a victim, was typically fatal within minutes.[1] Their highly potent venom was particularly effective against humanoid species.[3]

HistoryEdit

Bounty hunter Zam Wesell used a pair of kouhuns in her second attempt to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala while on Coruscant. The creatures were given to her by her colleague Jango Fett, who felt that a more subtle approach would succeed in finally killing the senator]. The creatures were loaded into a ASN courier droid, which flew to Amidala's apartment, cut through her bedroom window and quietly released the pair of deadly creatures into her room. The kouhuns fell onto the floor and started making their way to the sleeping Amidala's bed. When R2-D2, who was in the senator's room guarding her, detected something and turned on his lights to scan the room, the kouhuns froze. Once the droid went dark, they crawled up to where the senator slept. Anakin Skywalker, who was in the next room, was able to perceive through the Force that Amidala was in deadly peril. He quickly rushed into Amidala's chamber and deftly sliced the creatures in half with a couple swings of his lightsaber.[2]
