The creaky-limbed Kindalo are a species that dwell in the underground caverns deep beneath the surface of Aleen. Knowing that the surface world is toxic to those who live below, the tree-like Kindalo carefully guard passage to the underworld. They dwell in a cavern grove illuminated by their own bio-luminescence and the glows of similarly phosphorescent plants that surround them.
A rocky, temperate world found in the Mid Rim of the galaxy, the planet Aleen is known for its friendly, boisterous natives, the Aleena, who have traveled throughout the galaxy. Beneath Aleen's ground are other civilizations, unknown to the surface world or to the Republic. A series of devastating groundquakes suffered by the planet during the Clone Wars exposed passageways that connected the exterior and interior worlds.
C-3PO longs for more peaceful times, but his continued service to the Resistance — and his knowledge of more than seven million forms of communication — keeps the worry-prone droid in the frontlines of galactic conflict. Programmed for etiquette and protocol, Threepio was built by a young Anakin Skywalker, and has been a constant companion to astromech R2-D2. Over the years, he was involved in some of the galaxy’s most defining moments and thrilling battles. Since the Empire’s defeat, C-3PO has served Leia Organa, head of a Resistance spy ring aimed at undermining the First Order.
A reliable and versatile astromech droid, R2-D2 has served Padmé Amidala, Anakin Skywalker, and Luke Skywalker in turn, showing great bravery in rescuing his masters and their friends from many perils. A skilled starship mechanic and fighter pilot's assistant, he has an unlikely but enduring friendship with the fussy protocol droid C-3PO.
