Orrays were large creatures native to the planet Geonosis. They were used by the Geonosians picadors as mounts.

Biology and appearanceEdit

Sturdy quadrupeds, orrays were natives of the deserts of Geonosis, and were distinguished by their long snouts and tails. Those orrays which were tamed by the Geonosians had their tails removed, and replaced by metal caps to cover their stumps. Standing at two meters high and three meters long, orrays[3] were known and utilized for their strength.[1]


Many orrays were tamed and domesticated by the Geonosians, who used them for a variety of purposes, including as mounts and beasts of burden.[3] Because of their strength, orrays were made to haul heavy loads.[1] Orrays working in the Geonosian Petranaki arena had their tails removed and the stumps covered by a metal cap. These orrays were used as mounts for the picadors,[3] who used their stun poles to zap rowdy audience members,[4] or to pull the execution carts carrying prisoners into the arena.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Early designs of the orray created for Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones gave the creature a more aggressive and menacing appearance, but these traits were instead adapted to the massiff on Tatooine,[5] which itself was derived from a concept for the orray.[6] The orray has been described as a cross between an alligator and a horse.[5]
