A group of sentients from various species (and a droid)

Sentience was the ability of an organic species to think intelligently. Sentient species notably included the Ewoks,[1] the Patitites,[2] the Gungans,[3] and the Geonosians.[4] Non-sentient organics of the animal kingdom were variously referred to as "creatures"[5][6] or "beasts."[7][8] There also existed creatures that appeared to have emerging sentience, such as the Zillo Beast.[9]

Under the laws of the Galactic Republic, sentient beings could not be used as slaves. However, slavery thrived on certain remote planets such as Tatooine,[10] and was considered a profitable trade among the Zygerrians.[11] Most droids were afforded programming that did not allow them to harm sentient beings, with notable exceptions such as police droids[12] and battle droids.[13]
