"You know what I always say…speak softly, and drive a big tank." - Hondo Ohnaka
Hondo Ohnaka is a villain from the Star Wars universe, appearing in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
He is a Weequay pirate who is the leader of a gang of Weequay pirates known as the Ohnaka Gang and he is identified by the green-tinted goggles and helmet he is wearing; he is also usually seen in the company of his pet monkey lizard, named Pilf Mukmuk. Even though Hondo is a pirate, he has a bit of a sense of honor to him and he has something of a passion for antiquities. He has also claimed that he has learned a lot of wisdoms from his mother and he even quoted her once.
Allied with neither faction in the war, Ohnaka and his pirates were an independent faction, with a base on the planet Florrum. Not under the attention of either faction, having never done anything to draw undue attention to themselves, the group and its leader had business dealings in both ransoming hostages and selling spice on the black market. Ohnaka also had a pet Kowakian monkey lizard named Pilf Mukmuk.
After Count Dooku, a Sith Lord and member of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, fled
in a starship from the forces of the Republic in the Skirmish at Vanqor, he was shot down and crashed onto the surface of Vanqor. Ohnaka found Dooku fleeing from the Jedi Knights Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ohnaka attempted to sell a passage off the planet to Dooku. Ohnakas offer was taken up on by Dooku, who agreed to pay in order to escape from Skywalker and Kenobi. As Skywalker and Kenobi wished to take him to the Republic for trial and imprisonment, Dooku claimed he was above material wealth and paid the price. Dooku also made sure to hide his lightsabers so as not to show his status as a Sith Lord and important figure within the Confederacy, which could make the pirates choose to hold him to ransom.
