"I've been on my own since I was sixteen. I had no choice."
"I understand. That is the destiny of most Dowutins."
Nysorly and Grummgar[src]

The Dowutin were a species of large humanoids that were native to the frigid planet Dowut, which was located in the Core Worlds. Dowutins were known for their great size and strength, facial horns, and their long life spans.

Biology and appearanceEdit

The Dowutin species evolved from a type of omnivorous herd animal on the planet Dowut. They were large, aggressive-looking humanoids with chin horns, sharp claws, and thick skin[12] that were commonly brown in color[2][8] and had poor eyesight but superior senses of hearing and smell. Capable of living hundreds of years, Dowutin never stopped growing and by their fifth century were typically so massive that their loud footsteps and voices warned other species away.[5]

Society and cultureEdit

The Dowutin species was native to the frigid[6] Core Worlds planet of Dowut near the Unknown Regions[5] and spoke the Dowuta language.[6] Young Dowutin were forced to fend for themselves from an early age. Because of this, those that survived quickly learned to be skilled hunters.[12] Their size and strength made them prized as hired muscle, but most Dowutins' pride dissuaded them from such work, as they viewed other species as weak.[5]

HistoryEdit

A Dowutin Jedi

Dowutins were known for their mercenaries.[1] One Dowutin was a part of a gladiatorial program run by the Xonti Brothers. They put the Dowutin through harsh training which killed three of the other members. It faced off with the other remaining member, a Wookiee named Black Krrsantan, and was struck down in one punch.[13]

A female Dowutin known as Masana Tide[14] was originally a member of the Jedi Order before she joined Emperor Palpatine's Inquisitorius program and later became known as the Ninth Sister.[8] Grummgar, a member of this species, was present at Maz Kanata's castle with the spy Bazine Netal just before the First Order attacked the castle.[15]
