|Soth Petikkin's species|
The planet Tefau was the homeworld of at least one member of a sentient humanoid species. The species had two arms and legs, a torso, a neck, and a head. One individual had blue skin, bulging eyes, and a ridged, disc-shaped head. Soth Petikkin was a male individual of the species, native to Tefau. He served as a persuasive recruiter for the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War, a conflict between the Alliance and the Galactic Empire. Petikkin used his contacts in the crime lord Jabba the Hutt's palace on the desert planet Tatooine to find support for the Alliance.
Behind the scenesEdit
The species' origins date back to the production stages of 1983's Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi film. A number of alien maquettes were designed for possible inclusion in the film's Jabba's Palace scenes, but scrapped before the final film's release. Among them was a robed biped known only as "Alien 25," who might have been a candidate for one of Jabba's aides. In 1998, the character Soth Petikkin was created on a card for the Star Wars Customizable Card Game's "Special Edition Limited" set, which used a manipulated image of the "Alien 25" maquette.
