Thot Gor was the representative of the Breen Confederacy to the Dominion in 2375. As the Dominion War grew to a stalemate in mid-2375, Gor was secretly approached by the Female Changeling for an alliance between the two powers. Seeing an opportunity for conquest, Gor travelled to the Cardassian Union to sign the treaty of alliance. (DS9: "Penumbra")

Thot Gor oversaw the Breen forces, quickly coming to outrank Legate Damar of the Cardassian Union in the Dominion hierarchy, an event which incensed Damar greatly. One of Thot Gor's first actions was the daring raid on San Francisco. He later oversaw the Second Battle of Chin'toka, which was a remarkable victory for the Dominion. (DS9: "Strange Bedfellows", "The Changing Face of Evil")

Following the retaking of Chin'toka, Gor was succeeded by Thot Pran as commander of the Breen forces. (DS9: "Tacking Into the Wind")

Conquest

In a reality of major interstellar conflicts, Gor was involved in numerous conflicts as the leader of a Breen fleet. (ST video game: Conquest)

History

Commander Gor was a native of the planet Krypton and lived in the city of Kandor. He was one of thousands of Kryptonians that were trapped within a city-wide force field on the day that Brainiac captured Kandor and shrunk it down in size. Commander Gor worked under the Kryptonian Defense leader Dru-Zod who had promised him that he would do everything in his power to liberate Kandor. Gor was one of the highest-ranking member of the Military Guild in the city, where he and his lieutenant, Mur remained trapped for many years. Eventually, he was freed after Kandor was returned to its normal size on the planet Earth. Gor learned that in the years since his exodus, Dru-Zod had been branded a traitor and exiled to the Phantom Zone. He felt that it was a disgrace that such a national hero would be treated so unfairly. [1]

On Earth, Commander Gor was one of the more aggressive Kryptonians and believed that his people's liaison on Earth, Superman, had lost touch with his Kryptonian heritage. Gor led a contingent of troops on a mission to round up as many of Superman's known adversaries as possible. It was believed that any villain who posed a threat to Superman, also posed a threat to all Kryptonians. Gor and his team conducted a raid on Stryker's Island Penitentiary where they captured the prisoner known as the Parasite. During the breakout, Gor's men killed several guards as well as several distinguished officers of Metropolis' Science Police. [2]

Superman and the other heroes of Earth demanded that the Kryptonians responsible were held accountable for their actions. The Kandorian leader, Alura In-Ze refused to cooperate, and openly admitted that she approved of Gor's actions. The heroes decided to take the murderous Kryptonians by force. A battle was waged in skies above New Krypton and Gor fought against several costumed combatants, including Hawkman and Guardian. Ultimately, Commander Gor was not held accountable and remained on New Krypton even when it uprooted itself from the Earth and took position on the opposite side of Earth's orbit. [3][4]

During the early days of New Krypton's orbital location, the barely restructured Kryptonian society experienced great civil unrest. Labor Guild leader Tam-Or was dissatisfied with the lack of Guild representation in the governing council and felt that the Labor Guild members were being treated as little more than slaves. When his complaints went unheard, he and a loyal band of followers captured high-ranking members of the provisional government, including Alura, and held them hostage. The Military Guild, under the command of General Zod, were dispatched to deal with the situation. Under Zod's guidance, Commander Gor retaliated against the Labor Guild hostage takers by taking hostages of his own -- members of the Labor Guild. The order was sent out that unless Tam-Or released his hostages, Gor would begin executing Labor Guild members. Superman, uncharacteristically working alongside General Zod, attempted to defuse the situation without violence. He succeeded in this, but Commander Gor ignored the order to stand down and attempted to snipe Tam-Or. Fortunately for the disgruntled Labor Guild member, Supergirl was present on the scene, and deflected Gor's bullet. [5]

This incident set Superman and Commander Gor at odds with one another yet again and Gor challenged Superman to a duel. Gor fought an undignified battle, blasting Kal-El in the back with his heat vision. Superman's combat experience and training under people such as Batman gave him an edge however, and he defeated Gor. [6]

"Stand firm. There might be worse things here than Grievous."
"Looks like you're right about that sir!"
―Kit Fisto and Commander Fil, upon seeing Gor — (audio)Listen (file info)

Gor was a male roggwart owned by General Grievous during the Clone Wars. Grievous, who served as the Supreme Commander of the Confederacy of Independent Systems' Droid Army, kept Gor in his castle on the third moon of the planet Vassek. There, Gor acted as both a guard and a pet for the general, and was one of the few creatures Grievous cared for. Around 22 BBY, the Confederate Head of State, Count Dooku, lured a Jedi-led Republic task force to Grievous's castle in an attempt to test the general's skills. Grievous ordered Gor to kill the intruders, but the roggwart was slain by Jedi Master Kit Fisto.

Biography

"Gor, time to entertain our guests!"
―General Grievous — (audio)Listen (file info)

Following the defeat of the Bitthævrians in the Kaleesh-Bitthævrian War, the victorious Kaleesh warlords took roggwarts as trophies from the Bitthævrian homeworld of Guiteica.[5] One such roggwart came into the possession of Confederacy of Independent Systems Supreme Commander General Grievous, who named it "Gor." During the Clone Wars, Grievous kept Gor within his castle on the third moon of Outer Rim world Vassek.[2] Gor served as a guard alongside Grievous's IG-100 MagnaGuard battle droids and was outfitted with battle armor and four mechanical arms that were mounted on his back.[4]

Around 22 BBY,[1] Separatist Council member Nute Gunray escaped from Republic captivity while aboard the Venator-class Star Destroyer Tranquility and fled in a stolen Republic frigate. Intending to reassess Grievous's abilities after the general was defeated numerous times in battle, Confederate Head of State Count Dooku sent the frigate's tracking beacon to Grievous's castle in order to lure Republic forces there. While the general was away from the castle, Dooku remotely deactivated his MagnaGuards, leaving no one to feed Gor.[4] The roggwart was shrieking in hunger by the time Republic forces arrived to search the castle for Gunray.[3]

Gor's death at the hands of Kit Fisto

Senior Jedi General Kit Fisto, Jedi Knight Nahdar Vebb, and a squad of clone troopers under the command of Clone Commander Fil infiltrated the castle shortly before Grievous returned. Upon his arrival, the general was badly damaged by the Republic and Jedi forces and retreated deep into his castle to be repaired by his medical droid, EV-A4-D. Before beginning his repairs, Grievous released Gor into the corridors of the castle to hunt down the intruders. The roggwart found Fisto, Vebb, and Fil in one of the castle's large rooms and attacked them. Fil fired on Gor several times, but its tough hide and armor rendered the blaster shots ineffective. An aggravated Gor lunged at Fisto, disarming the Nautolan Jedi Master.[3]

As the three intruders surrounded Gor, Fil continued to shoot at the roggwart's neck. Vebb drove his lightsaber into the creature's back, which did little to slow Gor, who quickly bucked Vebb off and grabbed Fil with his prehensile tail, flailing the clone about. Vebb again approached Gor and was again beaten back, this time by the creature's tail that held Fil. Fisto, who had regained his lightsaber, sliced at Gor's face, causing the roggwart to slam Fil into the ground. Vebb rushed forward again, this time slicing off Gor's tail and freeing Fil, who perished from his wounds. Fisto also attacked Gor, who had been distracted by the loss of his tail, slicing off the creature's two front limbs. Gor fell to the ground in pain and was quickly killed by Fisto via a lightsaber stab to the throat. When Grievous's repairs were completed, the general attempted to see if Gor had finished "playing" with the Jedi, only to discover that Gor had been slain—a revelation that greatly upset the general.[3]

Personality and traits

Gor in Grievous's castle
"Well that was something."
―A clone trooper, upon hearing Gor in Grievous's seemingly empty castle — (audio)Listen (file info)

Gor was a male roggwart—a large, predatory, non-sentient beast.[2] He had large, sharp teeth and two horns that curved downward from his head. Gor's long tail ended in three prehensile graspers and his hands and feet both ended in large claws. His muscular body was capable of withstanding blaster shots and enduring modest lightsaber wounds.[3] Gor was fitted with a set of battle armor and four large mechanical arms that extended from his back. He screeched loudly when hungry. Gor had an aggressive disposition, which was evident during his battle with the Jedi.[4]

Given his position as a guard in Grievous' castle, Gor was likely taken from his brood-nest early in life; only roggwarts taken at a such a young age were able to be trained as watch-guardians or pets. The general himself was fond of Gor, doting on the roggwart during his time in the castle. Upon discovering his pet's death, Greivous was enraged, and added that offense to an already lengthy list of wrongs the general believed the Jedi Order had committed.[5]

Behind the scenes

Gor was created for the 2008 Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series. Gor was first mentioned in Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Visual Guide as the first depiction of the roggwart species. He later made his series debut in the season one episode "Lair of Grievous." The spelling of Gor's name is disputed by several differing sources. While most sources, including the Visual Guide, claim that it is spelled "Gor," The Art of Star Wars: The Clone Wars spells it as "Gore." The episode guide also refers to him once as "Gorr." While The Clone Wars season 1 Episode Guide claims that Gor's species originated on Guiteica, the Star Wars Roleplaying Game supplement, Galaxy at War states that they are from Vendaxa instead.

Concept art of Gor in his armor

Kit Fisto's way of maiming and killing Gor in Lair of Grievous is nearly identical to the way Obi-Wan Kenobi kills the acklay in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

Biogrophy

Gor was born on the small moon called Nar Shaadaa. At an early age both of his parents were killed by Confederacy of Independent System agents who were on a mission to hunt down and kill all CIS members who may of possibly comitted treason. After that, the young 15 year old hutt swore vengeance promising to bring an untimely end to the people who had killed his parents.

Vengeance

In the year 27 BBY, Gor had succesfully compiled a list of his parents murderers. The list contained the names of people like George Lak, and Aldar Beedo. After that, Gor rounded up some of the best known assassians in the galaxy and sent them on missions to kill the people on his list. One assasian, Mark Swanson confirmed the death Stek Mars, gloating about how he gruesomely dismembered Steks body. He soon recieved similar reports about the deaths of George Lak and Twen To-Wan. Aldar Beedo however killed the peron hunting him. The last murderer on Gor's list was fellow Hutt Crimelord, Jabba the Hutt. In attempt to kill Jabba, he hired Jabba's body gaurd Reelo Baruk, who had supposedly quit from Jabba earlier. Gor however overheard Reelo speaking to Jabba over a Holonet, discovering that Reelo was really out to kill him! Gor responded by gathering up his most trusted agent, Kubly John, to kill both Jabba and Reelo at a Podrace the next day. Kubly however was shot and killed by Reelo during the race, and Gor was also shot, but only slightly wounded. Jabba then ordered the Arrest of Gor.

Return

After Jabba the Hutt was killed by his Uncle Ziro the Hutt, Gor attempted to break out of his cell at Jabba's Palace. He was succesful in his efforts, and arrived just in time to see the bounty hunter Kelbo kill Ziro. Gor then Joined the Black Sun Syndicate and became one of their leading Vigos. As a vigo, Gor attempted to hire the bounty hunter Clonehunter to become his majordomo. Clonehunter declined the offer.

Black Sun Missions

Dac Thitaura was Gor's Majordomo and second in command. Dac however tried to kill Gor and take over Gor's postion as a vigo and become a vigo himself. Dac's plot was thrarwted by Gor's loyal body gaurd Tor McKatly.
