Twi'leks are a species of sapient native to Ryloth, a tidally locked planet.
Twi'leks bear a close resemblance to humans but have a broad variety of skin color, conical ears and two tenticles growing out of their heads (Lekku). These have a limited degree of mobility and can be used for visual communication.
Female Twi'leks have often been victims of the slave trade.
