Darts D'Nar, a Zygerrian slaver

"What's a slave trader?"
"Someone who buys and sells people for credits."
"People can be sold?"
"They don't have a choice. They're captives, treated like property.
―Omega, Tech, and Echo[1]

A slaver was a person who bought, sold, or managed slaves. Darts D'Nar was a Zygerrian slaver who operated during the Clone Wars. Azmorigan was a Jablogian slaver who operated during the reign of the Galactic Empire.[2]


Slavers prized the Wookiees of Kashyyyk due to the species' long lifespan, strength, and keen intellect.[3] When Asajj Ventress was an infant, she was taken by a slaver.[4]

During the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems restored the Zygerrian Slave Empire as a puppet state.[5] With the backing of the Separatist Droid Army, the Zygerrians captured and enslaved the Togruta people of the Kiros colony. A rescue mission was launched, consisting of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano, and Clone Captain CT-7567 "Rex."[6]
