"You have my faith. Toydaria would be honored to host a Republic base. My people are at your service."
―Katuunko, to Jedi Master Yoda — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

Katuunko was the King of the planet Toydaria and the Toydarian species during the Clone Wars. With honesty and his people's safety as his greatest concerns, he initially kept his homeworld neutral in the conflict, but after agreeing to aid the suffering Twi'leks of the planet Ryloth when asked by the Galactic Republic he decided it was time to make a choice.

Katuunko arranged for a secret meeting between the Toydarian Royal Delegation and Jedi Grand Master Yoda on the neutral moon of Rugosa, but the arrangement was discovered by the Confederacy of Independent Systems and Sith apprentice Asajj Ventress was sent to disrupt it. Yoda successfully defeated Ventress's forces and earned the Toydarian allegiance, after which Katuunko began representing the Toydarians in the Galactic Senate.

Count Dooku eventually arranged for Ventress's replacement, Savage Opress, to capture Katuunko alive but the apprentice killed the King instead by force choking him, and throwing his corpse to the ground in the Toydarian Throne Room. When Dooku found out about this, he became infuriated with Savage.

Personality and traits[edit | edit source]

Katuunko had to be convinced to join the Republic's cause, but remained primarily focused on the governing of Toydaria.[8]

Notes and references[edit | edit source]

  1. Master & Apprentice gives the age of Obi-Wan Kenobi as seventeen years old, while ToppsDigitalLogo.pngStar Wars: Card Trader (Card: Obi-Wan Kenobi - Padawan - Base Series 1) establishes that Kenobi was born fifty-seven years before the Battle of Yavin. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Yavin battle to 0 BBY, thereby placing Kenobi's birth in 57 BBY and the events of Master & Apprentice around 40 BBY. Master & Apprentice also establishes that Fanry is fourteen years old, which places her birth around 54 BBY. As Katuunko is a "few years" older than Fanry, he must have been born before 54 BBY.
  2. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the events of TCW mini logo.jpg Star Wars: The Clone Wars – "Witches of the Mist" in 20 BBY. Because Katuunko died during the events of "Witches of the Mist", it can be assumed that his death occurred in 20 BBY.
