The Jin'ha were a mysterious species famous for their work on the lightsaber-resistant cortosis ore. The Jin'ha also sold some of their cortosis ore to the Trade Federation, which crafted it for their experimental assassin droids. The common weapons the Jin'ha used were pikes, maces and blasters.


The Jin'ha was a mysterious species who operated a mine on the planet of Obredaan. The Jin'ha produced weapons from refined lightsaber-resistant cortosis ore that they shipped to various gangs such as the Black Heth and the Trade Federation.[1]

The Jedi Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi fought a group of Jin'ha during a weapons shipment to the Black Heth criminal gang. Later, he and his Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn fought an army of Jin'ha on Obredaan in order to free the captive Jedi Masters Eeth Koth and Plo Koon shortly before the Invasion of Naboo. The Jin'ha proved to be good warriors during this conflict, but were defeated by the Jedi.[1]
