"I'm a Toydarian. Mind tricks don't work on me, only money."
Watto[src]

The Toydarians were a race of avian beings from Toydaria. They were strong-willed, resistant to Jedi mind tricks, and had a body odor similar to sweetspice. They had a reputation for being stingy and bad-tempered. Toydarians were supposedly distant relations of the Hutts due to their home world's proximity to Nal Hutta as well as their similar resistance to the mind trick.

Biology and appearance

Zlato

Zlato, a Toydarian thief.

Toydarians had stubbly trunks on their faces which rested above short tusks. They had three fingers on each hand. A Toydarian's thin legs ended in webbed, three-toed feet, but their primary mode of transportation was their use of the wings on their upper back. Their wings could beat as fast as ten times a second, burning up large amounts of energy. Though their wings appeared frail, Toydarians could fly quite rapidly and preferred flight to the walking.

In order to fuel this hyperactive metabolism, Toydarians would eat concentrated foods and egg-seeds. Their bellies were also filled with a buoyant gas which helped them stay afloat, thus creating the appearance of a pot belly. Despite appearing pudgy, Toydarians were actually one of the lightest races in the galaxy because their body tissue was spongy and gas-filled.

Their skin was usually gray or blue although green and purple variants were common among females. The males of the species usually showed sparse whiskers. Toydarian newborns emerged from their mothers' wombs fully developed, resembling miniature versions of their parents, and were able to fly from birth.

Shrewd bargainers, Toydarians liked to socialize and strike deals. The best of them were proud, loyal, and business-savvy; the worst - greedy, deceitful, and sycophantic. Toydarians liked to gamble, and more daring Toydarian traders made difficult business decisions based on the roll of a chance cube. During the Clone Wars, King Katuunko kept the Toydarians loyal to the Republic, but more so out of admiration for the Jedi than for any real sense of trust in the Galactic Senate.

Toydarian government was a sovereign feudal system with one ruling king and many vassals. These vassals vied for power under the king's rule. The king made sure to keep his vassals happy and to have their allegiance, but would occasionally encourage infighting to reveal the true character of the vassals and weed out treachery. [1]

List of Toydarians

The Toydarian homeworld of Toydaria was covered with nutrient-rich muck lakes, which supported a number of predators including dangerous grabworms. Toydarians survived by flying virtually everywhere, only landing on the relative safety of alga mats. However, flight required an incredible amount of energy, replenished through the consumption of concentrated foods and high-energy egg-seeds.

Wars broke out from time to time among Toydarian confederacies when food supplies were low. The skies of Toydaria were filled with buzzing natives, so starship traffic to and from the world's single spaceport was strictly limited to specific times of the day.

The Toydarian government built a light-rail system to ferry offworlders from city to city. While Toydarians incorporated some galactic-level technology into their daily lives, they preferred to dwell in small villages that were far below the galactic standard.
