"Tough hides. Naturally resistant to blaster fire. The Hutts like to use them as bodyguards and bounty hunters."
Luke Skywalker, on Weequay[src]

Weequays were a sentient species native to the desert world of Sriluur. Their tough, leathery skin helped them endure the harsh conditions of their homeworld,[2] while also providing natural resistance to blaster fire, making them ideal bodyguards and bounty hunters.[7] As they evolved under merciless conditions, Weequays vastly served the Hutt Clan as mercenaries, bodyguards, and slaves as the Hutts controlled their homeworld.[22] Some were able to escape those hardships and sought out the Alliance to Restore the Republic and use their skill to bring some good to the galaxy.[23] The pirate Hondo Ohnaka was a Weequay.[12]
