Whaladon

Species

The Whaladon is a creature from the Star Wars universe, which first appeared in the novel "The Glove of Darth Vader", written by Paul Davids and Hollace Davids. Whaladons were large, peaceful, sentient marine mammals found in the oceans of Mon Calamari, a water planet in the Star Wars universe. Despite their intelligence, they were not technologically savvy but communicated with each other through a series of melodic tones.

Whaladons were known for their gentle and helpful behavior. They played a significant role in the Mon Calamari culture, where it was illegal to harm or hunt them. However, they were hunted to near extinction by off-worlders, especially during the time of the Galactic Civil War. Off-worlders hunted them not for survival, but for their meat which was considered a delicacy. Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo were among those of the Rebel Alliance who worked to protect the Whaladons and keep them from the threat of extinction.
