Futhork was the most recent of the two writing systems used by the human inhabitants of Naboo, the other being Futhark. It was used by the common populace in informal contexts.[1] Futhork abundantly appeared on starship computer monitors and status displays (as exemplified by Queen Amidala's Royal Starship and the N-1 starfighters), and on the helmets of engineers working for the Royal Naboo Security Forces.[3]

Futhork also appeared on a commemorative plaque presented to Commodex Tahn by Padmé Amidala for his services to Naboo.[4] During the war between the First Order and the Resistance, the population of the only trading outpost on Ashas Ree also used Futhork.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Futhork first appeared in the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace,[3] and was first canonically identified in the 2017 reference book Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia.[1] In the Star Wars Legends continuity, Futhork was first identified in the 1999 reference book Star Wars: Episode I The Visual Dictionary.[5] Both "futhark" and "futhork" are alternate words for the runic alphabet.[6]
