Gamorrean Guards

The Gamorrean Guards are the minor antagonists in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. They are some of the many guards of Jabba's Palace. In the movie, there are only nine of them. The most significant is Jubnuk.

The Gamorrean Guards are green pig-like humanoids from the planet Gamor. They are primitive warriors, and are armed with primitive weapons like axes. The Gamorreans live in seperate tribes on their planet, but all share the same code of of conduct. This includes fanatical loyalty, and unconditional obedience to the authority over them.

The nine Gamorrean Guards in Return of the Jedi were part of a group of Gamorreans that had been captured by Han Solo and Chewbacca years before, and sold to Jabba the Hutt. Jabba tricked the Gamorreans by saying that he would let them go if they beat him in combat. The Gamorreans agreed, evan when Jabba pointed out that they would have to wear blind folds. When the Gamorreans were blind foldded, Jabba's henchmen beat them up. Thinking that Jabba had won the challenge, the Gamorreans swore eternal service to him.

The Gamorreans are savage, violent, dangerous, aggressive, and bloodthirsty, as was demonstrated by their behavior toward others, and even each other. Indeed, when their leader, Jubnuk, was being eaten by a Rancor, his comrades laughed with the others. It is revealed that the Gamorrean Guards have limits, however, as is demonstrated by their solemn reactions to the fate that awaits the film's protagonists in the Sarlac pit.

Two of them are killed by Luke Skywalker when they tryed to stop him from entering Jabba's Palace. Jubnuk was eaten by a happy and playful rancor shortly afterwards. Another one was killed by Luke on Jabba's sail barge. It is unknown what happened to the other five.
