The Poletecs were a species of purple-skinned or white-skinned, lanky humanoids native to the planet Skako Minor. By the time of the Clone Wars they still led a primitive lifestyle and were wary of offworlders. Despite that, they ended up forming an alliance with the Galactic Republic and, when attacked by the Techno Union's Droid Forces, they fought against the droids. However many of the Poletecs were brutally killed by the droids; most being killed by Octuptarra tri-droids. They ended up winning the battle, and the survivors cheered in their native tongue. The Poletec chief later thanked the Republic for their help, and said that they would always have an ally on Skako Minor.
Behind the scenesEdit
Dee Bradley Baker, the voice of all Clone troopers in the The Clone Wars series, improvised the Poletec language and used the backwards speech from the red room in the series Twin Peaks as inspiration.
