The Pau'ans greeting Obi-Wan Kenobi

Pau'ans, also known as Utapauns, were humanoids from Utapau. They dwelled in their planet's sinkholes, and tamed the varactyls for riding.

They were tall - Tion Medon, a Port Administrator during the Clone Wars, stood at about 2.06 meters - and intimidating in appearance, possessing lined gray skin and sharp teeth and nails.

At the end of the Clone Wars, the planet was occupied by the Separatist Alliance. The Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi came searching for General Grievous: Medon discreetly informed him of Grievous' location, allowing him to bring the forces of the Republic to liberate the Pau'ans.

Five years before the Battle of Yavin, a Pau'an served as the Inquisitor, the Empire's Jedi hunter.

At the time of the Battle of Yavin, Coruscant, one Pau'an worked at a cantina. He would recruit strays to make deliveries. Anandra visited him with her brother to find shelter, but refused and fled when a stormtrooper and underworld policeman arrived.

Behind the scenes

The design of the Pau'ans for Revenge of the Sith was originally intended for the natives of Mustafar. The Pau'ans themselves were designed as lemur-like creatures per George Lucas.[1] Artist Sang Jun Lee drew some initial sketches of the Pau'an species, and Robert E. Barnes and Mike Murnane created sculptures of their faces. The design developed over time and was later changed to the Pau'ans' current appearance as Revenge of the Sith developed.[2] The Pau'ans in Revenge of the Sith were created through a mix of prosthetic makeup effects and computer-generated imagery.[1] The design of their face was inspired by an African tribal mask.[3]
