"And for your information, I am the boss. I am Duke Solha of the Free System of Serenno."
―Solha, to Anakin Skywalker and Thrawn[src]

Duke Solha was a human male native to the planet of Serenno. He was dispatched by Count Dooku to the planet Mokivj along with his brother and sister, where he mined cortosis, a rare metal that blocked lightsabers. He established a droid factory, where he made battle droids armored in cortosis. He was foiled by Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and the Chiss Commander Thrawn. With Solha's defeat, his entire career would permanently be destroyed by this devastating failure.[1]
