Biography

Greeata's reaction to Oola's execution.

Born on the Rodian homeworld of Rodia, Greeata was considered an outcast by the violent Rodian society for her love of music and dance. The name “Greeata” is a common name for female Rodians meaning “talented”. Rather than focus on hunting, Greeata absorbed any information she could find on the music and dance of many intergalactic cultures. Having rejected the values of Rodian culture, Greeata left her homeworld to perform as a Kloo horn player aboard the intergalactic cruiseliner Kuari Princess. At one point, she visited Coruscant and was present at the Squid Lake performance at the Galaxies Opera House. At the Opera House, she probably ran into Rystáll Sant.

Greeata developed a friendship with Sy Snootles, lead singer for Kuari Princess's house band. After forcefully rejecting the sexual advances of a male Rodian, Greeata and Sy left the house band to perform as a duo. Evar Orbus discovered the pair performing in the Green Planet nightclub on Tothis. Mesmerized by Snootles' voice, Orbus asked her to audition for his band. While excited, Snootles said that she would only join if Orbus offered Greeata a spot. After learning that Greeata could sing, dance, and play the Kloo horn, Evar signed her on as a dancer on a per diem rate.

After fifteen years of dancing with Lyn Me and Rystáll Sant, Greeata was first accepted as a full member when Max Rebo founded his own band. Unfortunately, it was not long after Greeata began singing with the Max Rebo Band that Jabba the Hutt was killed and his sail barge destroyed. In the chaos that followed, Greeata's Rodian survival instincts saved the band from a pack of Tusken Raiders.

Greeata and Rystáll later joined The Palpatones, where they were reunited with Joh Yowza. Greeata attained popularity as the band's lead singer. Notably, she gained fame with her hit song "Kick the Ranat".

Behind the scenes

Greeata was first seen in the extended musical number in the Special Edition of Return of the Jedi, where she was played by Celia Fushille-Burke.
