Pantorans were a Near-Human species native to the moon of Orto Plutonia, Pantora, located in the Pantoran system.

Biology and appearance

Pantorans were slender, blue-skinned humanoids native to the moon Pantora. They appeared to share similar ancestry with the Wroonian species. Pantorans also seemed to have a greater resilience to low temperatures than humans.

Society and culture

Pantorans maintained a democratic government of elected officials. They were governed by the Pantoran Assembly, which was in turn presided over by the harsh, iron-willed Chairman Chi Cho and following his death, succeeded by Baron N.Papanoida. They were an influential people who were part of the Galactic Republic with full Senatorial representation on Coruscant. During the final years of the Galactic Republic, Pantora was represented in the Senate by a young female Senator named Riyo Chuchi.


During the Clone Wars, the Pantorans requested, and were granted, a Republic outpost in their system as protection from the Separatists. A Republic military base was established on the frigid world of Orto Plutonia, a protectorate world of Pantora.

When the entire force of clone troopers stationed on Orto Plutonia went missing, the Republic sent Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to investigate. They were met on the planet by Chairman Cho and Senator Chuchi. Cho immediately attempted to assert his authority, giving orders to both the Jedi and the clone troopers accompanying them.

While searching the empty Republic base, Chairman Cho was convinced the Separatists were responsible. Finding a Separatist base not far away seemed to confirm his suspicions. However, after finding the Separatist base also destroyed with no evidence of contact between the Republic and CIS forces, Kenobi and Skywalker set out on Freeco bikes to discover the truth. They found a tribe of Talz in the hills and discovered they were responsible for the destruction of both bases, having felt threatened by their presence. Though evidence showed the Talz had been on Orto Plutonia for some time, possibly longer than the Pantorans had claimed sovereignty over the planet, Chairman Cho insisted the Talz were trespassers and declared war with them.

After a pitched battle, instigated by Cho, the Chairman and many of his clone trooper guards were killed before Senator Chuchi, with the support of the Pantoran Assembly, was able to garner peace with the Talz chieftain, Thi-Sen, assuring him that the Pantoran people would leave Orto Plutonia in peace.


When the Trade Federation blockaded Pantora, many Pantorans protested to the new chairman, N. Papanoida, that they should leave the Republic and join the Confederacy of Independent Systems so trade could resume.

Behind the scenes

The look of the Pantorans were inspired by concept art drawn by Iain McCaig for The Phantom Menace.

For The Clone Wars episode "Trespass", the actors providing the voices of the Pantoran characters were requested to incorporate a South African accent for their characters.[1]

Pantoran's are playable characters on the video game Clone Wars Adventures.
