- "The Niktos served the Hutts for centuries. They've never had a truly independent government of their own. Hardly even a world of their own, really."
The Nikto were a humanoid sentient species native to the planet Kintan. There existed at least three Nikto subspecies: the Kajain'sa'Nikto (red Nikto), the Kadas'sa'Nikto (green Nikto), and the Esral'sa'Nikto (mountain Nikto). Many Kajain'sa'Nikto were employed by the Hutt Clan as enforcers during the Clone Wars, and several green and red Nikto served the crime lord Jabba the Hutt shortly before the Battle of Endor. Some Nikto were members of the Jedi Order, such as the male Kajain'sa'Nikto Jedi Master Ima-Gun Di.
Biology and appearanceEdit
The Nikto species had at least three subspecies: the Kajain'sa'Nikto (red Nikto) and the Kadas'sa'Nikto (green Nikto), which were both well acclimated to desert climates, and the Esral'sa'Nikto (mountain Nikto). The red and green Nikto were distinguished by their scaly, course skin, horns and spikes. The mountain Nikto stood out from the red and green Nikto as they had no horns with facial fins instead.
The Nikto originated from Kintan. At some point in time their homeplanet was discovered and taken over by the Hutts, who enslaved their race. Some Niktos were appointed as guards and thugs for their Hutt overlords and became a common sight in most of their enslavers' entourages.
Some time after the death of Jabba the Hutt, the Niktos managed to break free from their oppressors and at least one Nikto cartel existed during the New Republic's existence. It was led by a Kajain'sa'Nikto named Rinnrivin Di.
