Snivvians, nicknamed Snaggletooths were a sentient mammalian, humanoid species that existed in the galaxy, hailing from the planet Cadomai Prime. They had large mouths and short fangs. The winters on their home planet are long and harsh and difficult to survive. During this, the Snivvians spend their time in underground caverns in artistic pursuits. Some of the species escape the icy tundras to become bounty hunters offworld. As a species they display great tracking skills, so they are particularly suited to this work. Sol Charless, Geezum, Drix Gil, Katt Mol, Narb, Nod, Sinrich, Takeel, and Zutton were members of the species.
Biology and appearanceEdit
Snivvians were mammalian humanoids distinguishable by their large nostrils and their protruding lower jaws, with two small tusks. Their hair color varied between brown and black, but they possessed a larger variation of skin and eye colors.
Prior to the Invasion of NabooEdit
Katt Mol was a Snivvian captured by a Trandoshan hunting guild led by Garnac. He, and four other captives were released onto Island Four, on the Trandoshan moon Wasskah, to be hunted by the members of the guild for sport. Two captives were killed upon being delivered and Mol and the Terrelian Jango Jumper Lika were pursued and killed the next day.
The Snivvian bounty hunter Sinrich came to invent the holographic disguise matrix, a personal holographic projection device that allowed the user to disguise themselves as someone else. This convinced Count Dooku to invite him to participate in a number of challenges at the Box on the planet Serenno. Sinrich was killed on the third challenge.
A Snivvian was a patron at Chalmun's Cantina in Mos Eisley on Tatooine. He was present when the Dathomirian Asajj Ventress killed the bounty hunter Oked. Following the infiltration of a space station above Cybloc, a Snivvian briefed the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Adi Gallia upon their arrival to investigate the incident.
A Snivvian was among the slaves working on Crawler 413-24 for the Mining Guild on Lothal. In 1 BBY, the Rebel cell known as the Spectres hijacked the Ore crawler and freed the slaves. They came to join the Spectres and the Lothal resistance at their base. Later on, the rebels gave away their location to Lothal's governor Arihnda Pryce in order to lure her in and capture her. The former mining guild slaves were among the defenders fighting Pryce's forces when they attacked. Unfortunately for the Snivvian, who was manning a large gun, he was among the defenders killed in the attack.
The Snivvians Takeel and Zutton were also patrons of Chalmun's Cantina. They was there when Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi visited to find transport to Alderaan. Takeel was later there when Boba Fett came to investigate Skywalker's origins.
A Snivvian was among the many visitors at a bar on Nar Shaddaa when Skywalker revealed his lightsaber. The Snivvian joined the crowd when they chased for it. Skywalker was later captured and put into a gladiatorial game in front of a large crowd, which had at least one Snivvian.
Geezum was a Snivvian who worked for the crime lord Jabba the Hutt on Tatooine. He was at Jabba's Palace when Skywalker attempted to trade for Han Solo, before being captured. Geezum was also on Jabba's sail barge, the Khetanna, for Skywalker and Solo's execution. However, Skywalker was able to obtain his lightsaber again and began slaughtering Jabba's hired guns. Geezum was last seen dashing around on the Khetenna before Skywalker and his friends destroyed it.
New Republic EraEdit
The Snivvians Nod and Narb lived on the independent refueling station known as the Colossus on Castilon. They were regular patrons at Aunt Z's Tavern and the two were seen watching the regular races that took place. The two Snivvians came to argue one night before discovering the Resistance spy Kazuda Xiono listening in. They threatened him, but he got away.
Snivvians in the galaxyEdit
In was not uncommon for Snivvians to be found at cantinas, conversing among other patrons there. Outside of the law, some Snivvians took up being bounty hunters, like Sinrich, who came to invent his own cloaking equipment. Geezum worked for the crime lord Jabba the Hutt's as one of his many guards.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Snivvian species were created for the cantina sequence in George Lucas' Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, released in 1977. They were not identified as Snivvians, however, until September 2016, through the Canon reference book Star Wars: Complete Locations.
