from what i read on the first page(i normally only read the 1st) it sounds like your just talking about them as they are programed in the game. If they were real they would be just like the females in general but with a sexy job they would still think and feel like a human. And let me ask u, do u really think EVERY dancer would go for a "one night stand" or be a "toy"? Because I sure don't.

Agreed, me and my mates went to a strip joint for a Stag night, and although they act interested do you really think a hot young women/Twilek finds a sweaty drunk who has to pay for pretend sexual attention attractive? I doubt it lol,

I think some people were covering some actual lore from the SW books or at least the SW Wiki.

But, this brings me to an interesting point, if the Twi'Leks sell their own people into slavery, and it's apparently a great business, wouldn't there also be a great market for breeders? I mean, those hot babes gotta come from somebody.

The "Mission Conundrum" people seem to be brining up I think is in large part due to her living a majority of her life on Taris, and, of course, having a wookie as a personal body guard.

The info pointed out earlier about many Twi'lek women being raised to be spoiled brats comes directly from Clone Wars Volume 4 Light and Dark. Not to say that all twi'lek girls are scatter brains (that goes without saying!) examples include, Yuthura Ban, Nolaa Tarkona, Darth Talon, Xiaan Amersu, Deeshra'cor and the like. I think part of what makes Twi'lek gals act so debached (besides the steriotype and culture on Ryloth) is that they feel rather lonely. This asumption is based off of what Alema Rar says in Legacy of the Force 6 Sacrifice, about how she was so mad at leia becuase Leia spoiled her looks and destroyed the company that was her Killik nest. As a general thing I would not say that Twi'lek dancers aren't as incredibly stupid as the early posts on this thread said. Take for instance the dancer Revan can help get a job with that travelling entertainer group. Next may I point out that Hara's girlfriend and also Lena seemed to have quite enough sense to ditch the guys they were with and head out on thier own. May I also point out the young dancer who accompanied Oola Tarkona on her trip to Tatooine? She was younger and theoretically more nieve than Oola, but she had the sense to get while the getting was good when Luke tried to rescue them both from Jabba's agents. Oola refused to be rescued and became racor chow. (Tales From Jabba's Palace.) On the other lekku there are some Twi'lek dancers who are just as debuached as they often look. Take for example the one who offers to spend the night with Jango at the Twirling Twi'lek bar. (Either the comic book Jango Fett or Zam Wissel, can't remember.) I would say that Twi'leks are similar to humans, you get a mixed bag of the most varrying sort. (Wookiedpedia should have info on most of the above mentioned.)

Not possable. Cause Twi'leks themselves are also the slavers. IOW, Twi'leks accept slavery as part of their culture, and uses slaves and what not within their own social structure. And it also seems that there is no specific slave caste within the Twi'lek society, despite the relatively large population of slave export.

Shame. It should reach a point where they refuse to take it anymore.

A Twilek slave uprising? Fun can that be in KotOR 3? We could totaly destroy Slheyrons econemy if we instigated one of those. But that's just wishful thinking. PoiuyWired is very correct though, slavery is an integratel and accepted aspect of Twilek culture as a whole. The Rite of Passage stary arch mentions this in the prologue.

Damn. For those who know the Punisher I love the Slavers storyline, and would have loved the opportunity to send out a holocron of a Hutt that was torched as a warning against slavery.

You Wicked You!!!

Hutts should be deep fried, not torched. Torching a Hutt is severe fire hazard... grease fire.

Lol.
I think the mind-set in which all Twi'leks are dancers and slaves is comparable to certain stereotypes of today. All Canadians say "eh?", all French speak like Lumiere, all Americans are George W. Bush, all blondes are dumb, size 12 sneakers = huge dong,...the list continues. None of those statements are universal, of course. If you actually go and visit America, Canada, or France, you see how wrong the stereotypeing is. They should add Ryloth into Kotor 3 ^,^ BUT, I digress, back to my original opinon on this topic...Lol.

Except the blonde part...

Actually, male twi'leks usually don't do dancers... Granted, there are good looking males, and would probably make good dancers if someone would take the time to train ... But so far we don't see any Fontuna pole-dancing, or Orn Free Tae Belly Dancing. Slaves for export seems to be mostly females, or mayber some male crossdressers (as Ackbar have said "It's a Trap!")

Which I always wonder. It is quite possable that naturally there is more female twi'leks than males by genetics. I mean, else there won't be enough females to go around for everyone. Then again, there are also much more female 'twi'leks than males on screen. So far only 2 normal males, and Tae is a freak and mutant with 4 headworms(what do you call those anyways, a pair would be "lekku" or "tchun-tchin" but FOUR? "tchun-tchun-tchin-tchin"?).

Thing is, there can be slave uprising and such in Ryloth, but that won't end slavery. All that means if successful is that the former slaves would be free and become masters, and the former masters sold into slavery instead.

Perhaps there are certain "colors" of twilek, such as the blue and green ones that seem rather common that are more prone to multiple births or female children? I always wondered what the difference in color made. I mean, I know what it does for human genetics, it's based on light needed vs light received to generate Vitamin D.

PoiuyWired, were there a Twilek reading this he would be most irrate with you. Calling lekku headworms! As for your comment on Orn being a mutant, Twileks consider multitudes of lekku increadibly attractive. One reason why Aayla was atrracted to Kit Fisto no doubt. Just kidding about Kit and Aayla.

Actually, Rutian and Lethian (blue and red) Twileks are the rarest where skin pigment is concirned. Tan, green, off-white, and other drabber colors seem far more common, possibly thanks to the fact that the first two Twileks (Oola and Bib) were those colors mentioned first. George Lucas may have decided to start using more colorful Twileks for the prequel films. He seems to be growing more exenctric with age... in any case, I like the material in Expanded Universe a lot more than the films.

But, back on subject. It may well be that there are more female Twileks than males, or it could be we simply see more females than males.
Assuming the natives of Ryloth export their own people, it seems reasonable that they export a greater number of females than males.
Or another factor could be involved. Take for instance the fact that one rarely sees a Devaronian female off their homeworld, whereas one sees the males much more frequently due to the fact that the males are plagued by wander lust.

Hmm... Devaronian would be an interesting example... though for the common folks they would not even no the Female Devaronian as being one, due to their differences in their dimorphic looks. Plus, if I remember right the Devaronian population is not a 1 to 1 proportion either. Granted this would make sense since the wanderlust of the males would send them all over the galaxy, increasing their casualty rate by quite a bit.

But given that Twi'leks do enjoy working would the (shadowy) outside worlds all over the place I would think that male's intension to not travel would not be a problem. Though I would say that a female Twi'lek easily steals the spotlight compare to the males. Maybe its just thqat females off-world often works in places where they can be seen, while males prefers more of the background.

But yeah, I don't know about the multiple headworms backstory. Though I do think that Kit and Aayla would indeed make a lovely pair. In fact, I think they would be THE pair if not for thw whole war thing, and Aayla's heart being also attracted Vos. But hey, everyone likes the badboy type.
