Nexus were predatory felines native to the planet Cholganna.[3] They were also found on Zhanox.[6]


Nexus were agile predators with four[3] red eyes[2] and sharp quills.[3] They had infrared vision[4] and were 4.51 meters long. Typically 0.94 meters tall,[1] nexus possessed sharp teeth and claws, as well as long tails.



Poggle the Lesser attempted to use a nexu to kill Senator Padmé Amidala.

Poggle the Lesser kept a nexu in the Petranaki arena on Geonosis. The beast was used in the attempted execution of Senator Padmé Amidala prior to the outbreak of the Clone Wars. When a Geonosian guard attempted to direct the nexu with a blast from an electric pike, the creature became irritated and devoured its provoker. A single kick from Amidala was enough to stun the nexu due to its weak skeletal structure; the predator was swiftly killed by a powerfull horn stroke from a Reek ridden by Anakin Skywalker.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The nexu that appeared in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones was nicknamed "Bad Kitty" by the ILM animation team.[7]

Robert Barnes designed the nexu; early concept sketches depicted a very lionlike creature. The nexu's final design came about when Barnes mixed feline traits with those of other species, such as reptiles and humans.[8]
