The Twi'leks , occasionally referred to as Rylothians, were a sentient species native from the planet, Ryloth. 

Physical Appearance

Twi'leks were a variety of colors, including black, blue, green, light, or orange. They typically had two lekkus, which were prehensile appendages sprouting from the crown or base of their skulls. However, some Twi'leks had four. Twi'leks and Humans could also breed with one another. One signficant example would be Jacen Syndulla, the half-Twi'lek, half-human son of Hera Syndulla and Kanan Jarrus.

Society and Culture


The Twi'leks spoke in their own langage called Twi'leki, known as Ryl, mostly spoken by those from Ryloth. The Jedi knight, Obi-Wan Kenobi was able to speak the language. They also spoke sign-language via their own lekku. However, they were typical of speaking Galactic Basic, while having a noticable Ryloth accent.

Some would lose their accent if they spent too much time away from Ryloth. This example would include Hera Syndulla, who only slipped back into her native accent when she was in an argument with her father and passing herself off as a servant ("Homecoming", "Hera's Heroes")
