Orto Plutonia was an icy planet that the Pantorans believed to be uninhabited, until the disappearance of the personnel of a Republic military base led to contact with the Talz.
Thi-Sen was the leader of a tribe of Talz on Orto Plutonia, who came into conflict with the Pantorans who claimed the planet.
- Extra Eyes: As a Talz, he has two pairs of eyes.
- Frontline General: He personally leads his warriors against the Pantoran and Republic forces, and despite being outgunned, manages to inflict heavy casualties on them.
- Humanoid Alien: Has the basic human body shape, but has a distinctly alien appearance.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: All he wants is peace, and tries his hardest to negotiate with the racist and irrational Chairman Chi Cho. However, he won't stand by and allow his people to be massacred and fights back against Chi Cho's aggression, later stopping the war when Senator Riyo Chuchi takes over the negotiations and forges a truce.
- The Unintelligible: He doesn't speak Basic, forcing Obi-Wan and Anakin to communicate with him by drawing on animal skins. During negotiations with the Pantorans, C-3PO provided translations for both sides.
The inhabited moon of Orto Plutonia.
- Ambiguous Situation: According to Phasma, Vi Moradi's brother is a dignitary stationed at Pantora sometime before the events of The Force Awakens, suggesting that Pantora is either a member of the New Republic (which at the time was in a political gridlock of Populists vs. Centrists) or a independent & sovereign world allied with the New Republic (like Ryloth). The Schrödinger's Canon trope below may also be taken in account.
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: The Pantorans have South African accents, and Chairman Cho's Fantastic Racism of the Talz.
- Facial Markings: Most Pantorans have yellow facial markings to show their allegiances.
- Rubber-Forehead Aliens: They look like humans with blue skin and purple hair.
- Schrödinger's Canon: According to the pseudo-canon Endless Vigil sourcebook for the Star Wars Roleplaying Game, after the rise of the Empire, Pantora became isolationist. As a result of this choice, the Pantoran Assembly split into three factions: the Appeasers, who wanted Pantora to join the Empire in the name of safety and economic security; the traditional Republicans, who believed the Empire stands against every core principle and value of Pantoran culture; and the unpopular and minority group of the Expansionists, who wanted to forge treaties with local old slaving and spice trade worlds.
- Either way, careful to avoid attention from the Empire, the Assembly gathered a volunteer navy to expand their work. Rogue Assembly members began to hire mercenaries and turned to less scrupulous & more unofficial methods of gathering information.
- Fortunately, while Orto Plutonia was full of raw material the Pantorans were looking for, Senator Chuchi's Treaty from the Clone Wars continued to hold up and thus the Talz remained uninterrupted per the treaty. While many members of the Assembly are fine with this and wished to respect the Treaty, others wanted to educate the Talz in hopes of integrating their two societies and sharing resources.
The Pantoran Assembly
Chairman Chi Cho
Chi Cho was the Chairman of Pantora at the start of the Clone Wars. While loyal to the Republic and dedicated to his people, his aggressiveness triggered a conflict with a tribe of Talz living on Orto Plutonia, a planet under his governments control.
- Fantastic Racism: Derides the Talz as "animals" and "savages", and refuses to recognize them as sentient beings.
- Fatal Flaw: He values the sovereignty of his people above all else.
- Jerkass: On top of being an arrogant bigot, he belittles Senator Chuchi, the Jedi and the clones. He's all-around rude in general.
- Knight Templar: For all his antagonism, Cho seemed to genuinely believe that destroying the Talz was in the best interests of Pantora.
- Too Dumb to Live: He declares his intentions to exterminate a race that was willing to make peace with him, but had shown themselves to be a tad kill-happy in the past, and does it to their face. He then personally leads an attack against a numerically superior force that is lying in wait on their own territory without any military support of his own. It seems like he is actively attempting to earn the trope.
Papanoida was the successor to Chairman Chi Cho. He resisted efforts by the Trade Federation to force his world to side with the Separatists by blockading it.
- Action Dad: When his daughters are kidnapped, instead of leaving the matter to the obviously inept local police, he starts his own investigation, catches the kidnapper, shoots up a bar, and rescues one of them himself.
- Ascended Extra: Papanoida appeared in Revenge of the Sith as a peripheral member of the Galactic Senate with small screen time and zero lines. He received a fleshed out expanded role in The Clone Wars.
- Badass Beard: It is George Lucas under that makeup, after all.
- Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: He was vocally based on Orson Welles in The Clone Wars.
- Creator Cameo: He had a cameo appearance in Revenge of the Sith, where he was played by George Lucas himself. However, George did not reprise this role in The Clone Wars.
- Guns Akimbo: Uses two blasters in the bar fight to save his daughter.
- Mysterious Past: He has a number of skills that are... unusual for a politician, including obvious experience with knives and blasters and a surprising familiarity with the criminal element. He also mentions to Jabba that they are "friends", though that may have been merely a negotiation tactic.
- Never Bring a Knife to a Gun Fight: Subverted. Greedo and his pals captured him and his son with blasters, only for Papanoida to take Greedo hostage by holding a knife to his throat.
- Papa Wolf: Threatening his children is a very bad idea, as Greedo learned.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: He's a far more levelheaded and reasonable person than his predecessor as Chairman.
- Rubber-Forehead Alien: He's a Pantoran.
- Schrödinger's Canon: In the Legends continuity, his first name is Notluwiski, which was originally his name in earlier drafts of Revenge of the Sith.
Chi Eekway Papanoida
Chi Eekway Papanoida was one of Chairman Papanoida's daughters. Towards the end of the Clone Wars, she replaced Riyo Chuchi as Senator in the Galactic Senate and was one of the many senators in the Delegation of 2,000.
- Creator Cameo: In a roundabout way. She had a cameo appearance in Revenge of the Sith, where she was played by George Lucas' daughter Katie Lucas, who wrote the episode they appeared in (and based Papanoida's two other children on her sister Amanda and brother Jett).
- Damsel in Distress: Unlike her sister, she doesn't get to participate in her rescue.
- Nice Hat: She wears an elaborate headdress, the design of which initially lead to many people thinking she was a Twi'lek.
Che Amanwe Papanoida
Che Amanwe Papanoida was Chairman Papanoida's other daughter.
- Damsel out of Distress: She gets kidnapped by bounty hunters, but once a gunfight breaks out between her captors and her father and brother, she easily gets her cuffed hands on a blaster to help her family.
Ion Papanoida was Chairman Papanoida's son.
- Badass Normal: Like his father he is a normal Pantoran with no special abilities or training, yet he proves to be a highly capable combatant who can quickly gun down several mercenaries while rescuing his sister.
- Distinction Without a Difference: When his sisters go missing, he says he doesn't think it was a kidnapping. He thinks they were held as hostages.
- Ink-Suit Actor: He closely resembles Seth Green, mixed with George Lucas' son Jett Lucas.
- Nice Hat: He wears a cap constantly.
Moregi was a male Volpai living on Pantora with his Rodian wife and her child. During the Clone Wars, his family was struggling in their financial situation, causing him to turn to embezzling funds from the Rang Clan. In retaliation, the Rang Clan placed a 25,000 bounty on his head. This led to his capture by the combined efforts of undercover Jedi Master Quinlan Vos and Asajj Ventress, who had become a bounty hunter.
