In the opening scene of Rise of Skywalker Palpatine is seen in a kind of workstation.

Half a dozen or so strange furry creatures are working away on the machinery around him.

Do we know anything about who these creatures were and why they were serving Palpatine?

    There would be a certain symmetry in a Sith version of an Ewok... – DavidW Dec 23 '19 at 22:23

    Do you mean the creatures with mouths like chimpanzees'? – RichS Dec 24 '19 at 3:39
  • @RichS I can't remember much about them, or their mouths. They weren't dissimilar to Ewoks now I think about it. – The Dark Lord Dec 24 '19 at 9:47

    A Sith version of an Ewok could be a Duloc? Were they Dulocs? The Ewok cartoon becoming canon would redeem this whole franchise for me. – rld Dec 24 '19 at 14:47
  • I remeber my fav fan theory before TRoS came out being that Palpatine crashes on Endor after being thrown out of Deathstar(coz space flight is a force ability now) and uses Sith invasive mind control to turn Ewoks into "Sith Ewoks" that labor for him – Karan Harsh Wardhan Jan 2 at 17:01

Here my 'long shot in the Dark Side' answer: Palpatine's assistants are similar to the unidentified Dowutin Sith in the tomb on Moraband that housed the Sword of Khashyun. In The Rise of Skywalker they are shown in humanoid embodiments wrapped in bandages and assist or serve like the former medical droids in Palpatine Surgical reconstruction Center in The Revenge of the Sith.

The mummified remains of a Dowutin Sith warrior

Palpatine's Assitants
