- "Time to see who's smart enough to join the hunt. Open fire!"
- ―Garnac gives the order to fire on Morgo and the other prisoners
Morgo was a gray-skinned Selkath alive during the Clone Wars. Taken captive by a group of Trandoshan hunters, Morgo was held prisoner aboard their slave ship, the Vermin-Thrax, in 20 BBY. The Sakiyan Vadoo, the Snivvian Katt Mol, and the Terrelian Jango Jumper Lika were caged alongside Morgo, all of whom the Trandoshans planned to hunt for sport.
After the Trandoshans kidnapped Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano on the planet Felucia and imprisoned her alongside Morgo and the others, the hunters traveled to the moon of Wasskah, where they released the captives from the Vermin-Thrax onto the beach of an island below. Aboard the slave ship, the Trandoshan leader Garnac gave the order to begin the hunt by firing the vessel's laser cannon upon the prisoners, sending them running. Just as Morgo began to flee, the Selkath was hit and killed by the laserfire.
Behind the scenes
Morgo appeared in "Padawan Lost," the twenty-first episode of the animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' third season, which aired on April 1, 2011. While not named in the episode itself, Morgo was identified in the accompanying StarWars.com Episode Guide, which also revealed that Morgo was modeled after Chata Hyoki, a fellow Selkath who appeared earlier in the season. Morgo's character model was later used as the basis for Mantu, a Selkath that appeared in the show's fourth season.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes "Ghosts of Mortis" and "Water War" to 20 BBY.
