Skako was a planet located in the galaxy's Core Worlds that was the homeworld of the Skakoan species. Its unique atmospheric pressure required Skakoans to wear pressure suits to survive off-world; otherwise, they would explode when exposed to standard oxygen-based atmospheres. Eight eyed, gasbag-headed vine walkers known as octuptarras were found on Skako, and Wat Tambor, the foreman of the Techno Union during the final years of the Galactic Republic, was a male Skakoan from this world. Skako sat between Brentaal IV and Fedalle on the Hydian Way hyperspace route. During the Clone Wars, it was aligned with the Confederacy of Independent Systems before being captured by Republic forces.
