The Ugnaughts were vaguely porcine humanoids with slightly upturned noses from the planet Gentes. Compared to baseline humans, their height would be considered short or dwarfed. Ugnaughts were industrious and loyal workers and also had a rich oral tradition. They were quite hardy, able to withstand long periods of discomfort, and lived to around two hundred years of age.

Society

Ugnaughts on Cloud City.

Ugnaughts were ruled by elected terend councils, which are led by elected ufflor officers. They were also represented in the Cloud City's Parliament of Guilds. Ugnaughts lived their lives in accordance to their "blood profession", with Ugnaught parents teaching their children their trade. Infant Ugnaughts were known as Ugletts. If the number of new Ugnaughts in a given profession exceeded the needed, a blood duel was called. When the Ugnaughts reached their twentieth year of age, these fights were held to the death, with the victor winning the right to inherit their blood profession. Despite this outdated violent custom, the Ugnaughts were generally a peaceful people with a rich culture.

When greeting an Ugnaught, it was advised to bow silently, then wait for a guttural purring as a positive response. Otherwise, it was advisable to duck and cover, as various mechanical implements would be thrown one's way.

History

"These creatures have little fight in them. They will make excellent slaves."
General Grievous
Gentes's population taken prisoner after the Battle of Gentes.

Originally from the planet Gentes in the remote Anoat system, Ugnaughts were taken away from their homeworld as slaves long before the Imperial era. Entire tribes would often be sold into slavery. The remaining Ugnaughts lived on the planet's less-than-hospitable surface.

In 32 BBY, some Ugnaughts worked at the Oovo IV maximum security prison. When the facility was infiltrated by bounty hunter Jango Fett, he encountered these Ugnaughts while escaping the facility.[2]

During the Clone Wars in 20 BBY, the Separatist General Grievous led an invasion of Gentes. His forces destroyed the Ugnaught Administration Hub and disabled the planet's defenses. He then took the entire Ugnaught population prisoner and put them to work in the CIS droid foundries on Geonosis. Later he massacred the remaining Ugnaughts, except for some survivors who were later killed by General Grievous, when attempting to rescue a group of Padawans. A shipment of these Ugnaught slaves was rescued by the Jedi Treetower and the H.O.P.E. Squad on Yorn Skot.

Ugnaughts working in Cloud City.

Under the Human-centric Galactic Empire, the Ugnaughts slavery continued and they were used for many Imperial projects.

Two thousand years earlier, when the Corellian eccentric and noble Lord Ecclessis Figg wished to build a floating mining complex on Bespin, he decided to recruit several Ugnaught tribes to help in the mining of the base metals needed to build the structure. He bought the services of three Ugnaught tribes: the Botrut, the Isced, and the Irden.

He promised them freedom, livelihood and a share in the Figg & Associates profits. Once Cloud City was built, the noble Ecclessis Figg remembered his promise and gave them their freedom. To make themselves feel at home, the Ugnaughts constructed many labyrinthine tunnels throughout the city, which could only be navigated by their kind.

Shortly after the Battle of Hoth, the Cloud City mining colony fell under the rule of Imperial Captain Hugo Treece, who enslaved the Ugnaughts. Many Ugnaughts fled the city, led by the wealthy King Ozz who sheltered the refugees on floating platforms terraformed to mimic the original Ugnaught home world. There, King Ozz's Ugnaughts formed a resistance movement on Bespin, which planted bombs throughout the colony. As a result, Cloud City was evacuated until the bombs could be defused. When the New Republic recaptured Bespin, the Ugnaughts returned. The fall of the Empire meant that things would return to normal for the Ugnaughts.

Behind the scenes

Star Wars 56: Coffin in the Clouds incorrectly indicates that Bespin is the home planet of the Ugnaughts.
