- "Tough hides. Naturally resistant to blaster fire. The Hutts like to use them as bodyguards and bounty hunters."
- ―Luke Skywalker, on Weequay
Weequays were a sentient species native to the desert world of Sriluur. Evolving under merciless conditions, their tough, leathery skin helped them endure the harsh environment of their homeworld. It also provides natural resistance to blaster fire, making them ideal bodyguards and bounty hunters. Many Weequays served the Hutt Clan as mercenaries, bodyguards, and slaves because the Hutts controlled their homeworld. 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. The pirate Hondo Ohnaka and most members of his Ohnaka Gang were Weequay.
