The Melitto were a species in the galaxy with heightened sensory capabilities. In 3628 BBY,[2] before the start of a third Galactic War between the Sith Empire and Galactic Republic, Dark Council member and Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Malora used the Melitto sensory capabilities to develop mutated Geonosians that were deployed on the planet Ossus.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Melitto were first mentioned in the Star Wars Legends continuity in BioWare's 2011 massively multiplayer online role-playing video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, specifically the[1] 2018[3] Jedi Under Siege update for the 2016 Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion.[1] The Melitto were originally introduced in the 2015 canon novel The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure, written by Jason Fry.[4]
