K is for "Klaatu"

Klaatu was one of the guards on Jabba's skiff:

And no, he's not a Weequay; he's a Nikto1 (Kadas'sa'Nikto, technically).

The image linked in the question is a composite of the "Chibi Star Wars Alphabet" series by artist Joe Wight. The name of the character can be found on Wight's DeviantArt page.


1 Thanks to Omegacron for remarking that one of Klaatu's co-workers was named "Barada". No, seriously

    @Randal'Thor - Clearly, since "Klaatu" is a "Nikto", as in "Klaatu Barada Nikto".

    @Randal'Thor Subtle, huh? May 5, 2016 at 1:09
  • Jason, I like your answer, but I can't LOVE it until it mentions the origins of the character and species' name. :)

    @JasonBaker - Barada was his friend and fellow guard, but he wasn't a Nikto. Barada was a Klatooinian. Get it?
