"Do I look stupid to you? Am I a Gamorrean?"
―A Krawg pirate[src]

Gamorreans were a sentient species of green-skinned pig-like humanoids that hailed from the Outer Rim planet of Gamorr. They grouped themselves in clans, each of which was led by a warlord and a Clan Matron. A number of Gamorrean guards were employed by the crime lord Jabba the Hutt throughout his career.

Biology and appearanceEdit


Gamorreans had porcine features.

A species of tall, strong bipeds, the Gamorreans had porcine traits,[5] like an upturned, large-nostriled cartilaginous snout,[16] jowls, and upturned tusks. Their hulking bodies were covered in green[5] or rarely pink,[4] thick and hairless skin. They had five digits on every extremity, each sporting a hard nail. The digits of their hands included an opposable thumb, which allowed the Gamorreans to easily grasp and handle objects. The species had two sexes: the males, referred to as boars, and the females, called sows.[5]

Society and cultureEdit

Gamorreans had a clan-based society. Each clan was ruled by a female leader, the Clan Matron, and a male leader, the Warlord.[17] Although the sows farmed and hunted while the boars waged wars,[5] the Gamorrean society was in fact a matriarchy. Indeed, a Warlord held his position by way of marriage to a Matron rather than force, although Matrons did make their selections based on the boars' combat skills.[17] Gamorreans saw war as glorious, and violent clashes between clans were rife.[5]

Because of their low intelligence, Gamorreans tended to be both stubborn and loyal; philosophically, they believed that any problem could be solved by hitting it with brute force. They had a language of their own that sounded like mere grunts and squeals to outsiders. Although they could understand other languages, such as Galactic Basic, they found most of them too difficult to pronounce.[1]

Technologically speaking, the Gamorreans were primitive, and they favored melee weapons like vibro-axes and vibro-lances over blasters.[5] They never discovered space travel on their own. Moreover, Gamorrean boars failed to maintain personal hygiene, rarely changing their clothes or wiping the streaming mucus from under their snouts.[18]


Gamorreans evolved on the planet of Gamorr, in the Outer Rim Territories,[5]

Gamorreans in the galaxyEdit

Offworld Gamorreans were a common sight, be they mercenaries or enforcers working for crime lords. Most notably, the Hutt gangster Jabba Desilijic Tiure employed Gamorrean guards throughout his career.[1] Uncharacteristically, a Gamorrean worked as a clown in Preigo's Traveling World of Wonder at the time of the Clone Wars.[19]
