"These creatures are little more than animals. You can't lie to an animal! They can't be trusted."
―A gravely mistaken Chairman Chi Cho on the Talz[src]

The Talz were a sentient species native to the planet Orto Plutonia. The Talz lived in tribes, one of which was led by Thi-Sen.

Biology and appearanceEdit

Talz were large bipeds covered in thick, shaggy white fur with sharp talons capping their five-fingered hands. They possessed four black eyes (the small ones were used for day vision, and the larger ones for night vision) and a small proboscis for feeding and communicating.[7]

Society and cultureEdit

The Talz were a primitive civilization that used few tools[7] and lived a simple life in a harsh environment.[3] They organized themselves in tribes led by chieftains,[1] and used the native narglatches as mounts and protection.[3] They had a language of their own, called Talzzi,[4] but were unable to speak Galactic Basic.[1]


The Talz hailed from Orto Plutonia, a frigid planet located in the Pantora system.[8] During the Clone Wars, both the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems attempted to establish outposts on Orto Plutonia, only to be wiped out by the natives.[3] Eventually, Chieftain Thi-Sen of a Talz tribe encountered the Pantoran Senator Riyo Chuchi, and the two negotiated a peace treaty between Orto Plutonia and Pantora.[1]

Talz in the galaxyEdit

By the time of the Clone Wars, the Talz were not advanced enough to master space travel.[1] During the Galactic Civil War, however, some Talz could be found on planets such as Tatooine,[2] Espirion,[9] and Son-tuul.[10] At least one Talz was present at Chalmun's Cantina when Obi-Wan Kenobi saved Luke Skywalker from Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba by cutting off the latter’s arm.[2]
