The guarlara were a species of non-sentient quadrupeds indigenous to the planet Naboo.

Biology and appearance[]

Guarlara were muscular, four-legged creatures with an elongated muzzle, upright ears,[2] a pair of curved horns,[1] hooved feet, and a tail covered in long hair.[3] They were herbivorous, grazing on plants.[1]

History[]

The guarlara were indigenous to the grasslands of Naboo, a small pastoral planet[4] located in the Chommell sector of the galaxy's Mid Rim Territories region.[5] The human inhabitants of Naboo used them as ceremonial mounts, as shown in a painting hung in the Naboo Royal Palace.[3]

In Theed, the capital city of the Naboo, the second-nearst archway to the Palace Plaza was topped by two statues representing guarlara.[2] Also, when Queen Amidala wore her Galactic Senate outfit, the hair was fashioned to resemble the horns of a guarlara.[1]

During the Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic's starfleet had a Venator-class Star Destroyer christened Guarlara.[6]

Behind the scenes[]

Guarlaras first appeared as statues in the 1999 movie Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.[2] In Star Wars Legends sources, they were described as royal riding animals used only by the Naboo monarchy.[7]
