Wooof was a male Kadas'sa'Nikto who was a slave of Jabba Desilijic Tiure, serving as the crime lord's chief pilot on the planet Tatooine during the Galactic Civil War.


Wooof btm


Born and raised on Tatooine[source?], Wooof was once a freelance smuggler and an excellent pilot, until his job went bad and he found himself in debt to Jabba for a sizeable amount, becoming another of the Hutt's perpetually indentured servants. Jabba found use for him as a pilot for his many spacecraft, including his personal space yacht, though Wooof himself was more comfortable behind the controls of a starfighter. During the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon, Wooof died on the deck of the Khetanna when his blaster fire was deflected back at him by Luke Skywalker.


Klaatu arrives on the deck of the Khetanna as Wooof, having been struck by a deflected blaster bolt, lies prone to Luke's left.

Behind the scenes

"The Green Nikto seen in Jabba's palace was called Klaatu, though Wooof was one of the production names used for this character."
Leland Chee[src]

According to Leland Chee, the Kadas'sa'Nikto, in the Throne Room, wearing the Kama-like fur clothing was originally named Klaatu (an original production name), but has since been renamed Wooof by Decipher. On July 6, 2011, Chee revealed that Wooof and Klaatu are separate characters, in his Keeper of the Holocron blog on [3]


Wooof, from the side

Klaatu was named for Klaatu barada nikto, a phrase from the 1951 film The Day The Earth Stood Still. "Klaatu" is the name of the humanoid alien protagonist in the film.

The "Klaatu (Palace)" action figure made by Kenner in 1983 is based on Wooof's likeness. In the same year, Kenner also produced a "Klaatu (in Skiff Guard Outfit)" action figure which bears the likeness of the real Klaatu. The two characters are in fact different. Wooof wears Kama-like fur clothing while Klaatu wears white coveralls. A new Wooof action figure, bearing the correct apparel, was included as part of the 2010 Hasbro lineup.
