"These Kaminoans keep to themselves; they're cloners. Damn good ones, too."
―Dexter Jettster, to Obi-Wan Kenobi, about Kaminoans[src]

Kaminoans were a sentient species native to Kamino, an aquatic planet located beyond the Rishi Maze. Kaminoan scientists specialized in cloning technology and, at the behest of Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas, created the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic. The Sith also worked with the Kaminoans, such as by providing a bio-chip for all clones that would eventually trigger Order 66, the command that saw the clone troopers turn against the Jedi and bring about the destruction of the Jedi Order.

Biology and appearanceEdit

Kaminoans were slender, towering, pale-skinned humanoids whose oblong heads sat atop[1] elongated neck bones that allowed them limited flexibility.[9] They had two large, almond-shaped black eyes with white pupils[3] that enabled them to see into the ultraviolet spectrum. Male Kaminoans had fin-like crests atop their heads, while females were completely bald and wore unique head crescents.[4] Their long and frail limbs gave them a graceful, gliding walk[3] and featured small feet adapted to their homeworld's firm seabeds and later hard flooring.[9]

Society and cultureEdit

Kaminoans generally displayed few signs of outward exuberance or personality. They considered the clone troopers to be their finest achievement.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The design of the Kaminoans was inspired by the aliens from Steven Spielberg's film Close Encounters of the Third Kind.[10]
