Hortentious Clee was an individual who ruled as a tyrannical space despot. The autocrat once employed a private guard named Prod for some time, to work as Clee's henchcreature. Prod's attributions included the torture of individuals by air drowning, tooth removal, and dismemberment on behalf of Clee.
Behind the scenes
Hortentious Clee was mentioned in a segment meant to look like Prod's professional resume, written by Bob Carrau for the 1993 book Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, a publication that combines creature designs and photographs from various projects of George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars franchise, with original text by Carrau. Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who maintains the Holocron continuity database, has indicated that information contained in the book is non-canonical. Clee's species and gender were not identified in the book.
