From Oola to Darth Talon, this article ranks the 10 sexiest Twi'leks in the Star Wars universe!

Throughout the Star Wars universe there exists a number of alien species that possess both charm and remarkable beauty. The most well-known of these species include the Twi’leks from the planet Ryloth. Renowned for their long head-tails known as “lekku,” this near-human species boasts an unparalleled number of sexy characters within both canon and legend sources. With this in mind, this article seeks to rank the 10 sexiest Twi’leks to have appeared in the Star Wars series. It is the author’s hope that a better understanding and appreciation of these beautiful characters will accompany readers following their completion of this work.

Selection Criteria

In order to rank the 10 sexiest Twi’lek characters, a number of basic criteria was necessary for this list. First and foremost, it is important to note that each of the following ladies were selected from all available Star Wars source materials. This included comic books, movies, cartoons, as well as books. After a basic set of Twi’leks were identified, the ladies were then ranked according to their overall beauty, appearance, sex appeal, and seductive nature. While this latter process involved a great deal of personal bias, the author believes that this criterion offered the best means for selecting (and ranking) the 10 sexiest Twi’lek characters.

Hera Syndulla.

Hera Syndulla.

10. Hera Syndulla

  • Height: 5’9”
  • Eye Color: Green
  • Skin Color: Green

Hera Syndulla was a Twi’lek fighter that played a vital role in the early Rebellion’s struggle against the Galactic Empire. Born to General Cham Syndulla and his wife (Eleni Syundulla) on the planet Ryloth, Hera witnessed some of the most devastating aspects of the Clone Wars firsthand, as her homeworld was caught in between the Republic and Confederate struggle for domination. Because of this, Syndulla was trained in a revolutionary fashion by her father, becoming an expert pilot, revolutionary leader, and master of hand-to-hand combat by adulthood. Following the cessation of the Clone Wars, these skills proved paramount to the success of early rebellion battles in their struggle against the Empire, as Syndulla quickly rose through the ranks to become one of the Rebel Alliance’s top military leaders.

Personality and Appearance

Hera Syndulla is a remarkable character with a two-dimensional side to her overall personality. Although she is often portrayed as a “no-nonsense” sort of individual, she is also quite compassionate and warm toward others (especially those who are downtrodden and have experienced great emotional upheaval). Hera is also extremely intelligent, tactful, and aware of her surroundings (a trait garnered by her childhood on a war-torn planet).

In regard to her appearance, Hera is an incredibly beautiful character renowned for her long lekku, soft green skin, and matching green eyes. She is relatively tall for a Twi’lek, and possesses a slim/athletic body that is well-proportioned. Although her attire is extremely modest (compared to others on this list), her gorgeous facial features, smile, and personality make her one of the sexiest Twi’lek women in the Star Wars universe, and a clear choice for our countdown.

Rianna Saren.

Rianna Saren.

9. Rianna Saren

  • Height: Unknown
  • Eye Color: Green
  • Skin Color: Orange

Rianna Saren was a Twi’lek slave who first appeared in Star Wars: Lethal Alliance. Sold into Imperial slavery at an early age, Saren faced incredible hardship by her captor (a Zabrak known as Zarien Kheev) before finally escaping Coruscant and pursuing a brief career in the criminal underworld. This quickly changed around 0 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin), however, as Saren became acquainted with the mercenary Kyle Katarn, who introduced her to the Rebel Alliance. Following her newfound friendship with Katarn, Saren became a key operative of the Rebels, using her criminal background to steal and thwart various operations within the Imperial military and Black Sun.

Although unknown to many Star Wars fans, Saren also played a key role in the destruction of the first Death Star, as her actions helped the Rebel Alliance acquire additional schematics of the station. Combined with the plans provided by Cassian Andor and Jyn Erson (Rogue One), the Rebels were able to develop an effective strategy against the Empire, giving Luke Skywalker the information he needed to destroy the Death Star with his well-placed shot.

Personality and Appearance

Due to her upbringing, Rianna Saren can be best-described as extremely self-reliant, hot-headed, and cynical. With numerous emotional scars from her years as a slave, Saren rarely trusts anyone, making it incredibly difficult for her to develop friendships and lasting connections (with the exception of her droid companion, Zeeo). For these reasons, Saren almost always worked alone. Despite these shortcomings, however, Saren was an incredible fighter who was both athletic and agile. Combined with her anger and proficiency in mixed martial arts, Saren was an incredibly dangerous individual capable of subduing nearly any opponent with ease.

In regard to her appearance, Rianna Saren is an extremely beautiful woman and is renowned for her orangish skin, beautiful green eyes, and long lekku. Sporting a pair of tight-fitting pants and a half tank-top, a great deal of her body is constantly on display for others, revealing her beautiful curves and large bust. Taken together, it is not difficult to see why Saren is one of the sexiest Twi’lek women appearing on this list.

Alema Rar.

Alema Rar.

8. Alema Rar

  • Height: 5’3”
  • Eye Color: Green
  • Skin Color: Blue

Alema Rar was a female Rutian Twi’lek who served as a Jedi Knight under the New Jedi Order. Born into extreme poverty and slavery, Rar was eventually freed by Jedi Knight Daeshara’cor, who promptly took the young Twi’lek to Yavin 4 when it became apparent that she was Force Sensitive. Following her training in the Jedi arts, Rar became a vital component to the New Republic, participating in a number of battles and largescale conflicts with great success. Unfortunately, her time as a Jedi was cut short as she was later swayed to the Dark Side of the Force and allied herself alongside the resurgent Dark Lady of the Sith Lumiya. Her uncontrollable anger (stemming from her childhood) and eventual insanity all aided in this unfortunate transformation.

After engaging with a number of Jedi Knights, a Jedi strike team was organized to hunt Alema Rar down for the purpose of eliminating her. After being tracked to Lumiya’s secret retreat, she was eventually killed by Jagged Fel, ending the difficult and tumultuous life of the young Twi’lek.

Personality and Appearance

Alema Rar was a very complex character with a personality that reflected her difficult life. Although incredibly brave and courageous (especially in the heat of battle), Rar was also prone to aggression, extreme anger, and emotional outbursts. Such feelings eventually gave way to streaks of selfishness and narcissism, especially once a number of her closest friends and love interests were lost in the ensuing war. For these reasons, Rar became an easy target for her enemies, who preyed on these weaknesses in order to convert her to the Dark Side of the Force (with success).

Despite these character flaws, Alema Rar was renowned for her incredible beauty and sex appeal. Classified as both slender and extremely fit, Rar made her physical well-being a priority in her daily life. Possessing blue skin and almond-shaped eyes that changed colors (according to her mood), Rar was virtually unparalleled in her overall beauty within the Star Wars universe. Combined with her sensual side, large bust, and form-fitting attire (that leaves little to the imagination), it is not difficult to see why Alema Rar was included in this list as she is an exceptionally sexy character.

Suu Lawquane.

Suu Lawquane.

7. Suu Lawquane

  • Height: 6’1”
  • Eye Color: Blue
  • Skin Color: Pink

The beautiful Suu Lawquane was a Twi’lek that lived on the planet Saleucami with her two children, Shaeeah and Jek. During the Clone Wars, she was introduced to a clone deserter known as Cut Lawquane, whom she fell in love with and married shortly after (as seen in the Clone Wars television series). The pair remained on Saleucami, where they maintained a small homestead. After several run-ins with the Republic and Galactic Empire, however, both Suu and Cut eventually decided to leave the planet with the aid of Clone Force 99, living in relative peace for the remainder of their time together.

Aside from these basic facts, very little is currently known about Suu Lawquane and her life. Nevertheless, it is believed that she was likely a widow before becoming acquainted with Cut. Some have speculated that her refugee status on the planet Saleucami may have also resulted from the onset of the Clone Wars, which led to widespread devastation on her home planet of Ryloth. Whether this is true or not, however, remains to be seen and will depend largely on details provided by Disney in the years that lie ahead.

Personality and Appearance

Suu Lawquane was an extremely loyal and dedicated individual who was both loving and protecting over her family. Although she desired peace and separation from galactic affairs (hence her decision to become a homesteader), Lawquane was also extremely aggressive when it came to protecting her children and husband from harm. And while this made her quite skittish towards outsiders, Lawquane was also incredibly compassionate towards those in need, and would do whatever was necessary to help those who were suffering.

In regard to her appearance, Suu Lawquane was an incredibly sexy Twi’lek with a slender/athletic build and pinkish skin adorned by pale tattoos along her arms and lekku. Dressing in an extremely revealing top and form-fitting pants, Lawquane was never shy about showcasing her cleavage and large bust. Combined with her beautiful blue eyes and strong facial features, she is easily one of the sexiest Twi’lek women to have appeared in the Star Wars franchise.

Yuthura Ban.

Yuthura Ban.

6. Yuthura Ban

  • Height: Unknown
  • Eye Color: Violet
  • Skin Color: Violet

Yuthura Ban was a Force Sensitive Twi’lek who was born on the planet Sleheyron just before the Jedi Civil War. Enslaved at a young age by the notorious Omeesh the Hutt, Yuthura experienced great turmoil during her childhood that would affect her for the remainder of her life. Although she later escaped Omeesh and was rescued by the Jedi Order (who promptly began training the young Twi’lek after recognizing her potential), her time with the Jedi was short-lived. After attaining the rank of Padawan, Ban’s lingering hatred and anger led her to join the Sith Academy on Korriban, where she eventually became an apprentice to the Headmaster, Uthar Wynn.

During her time at the Sith Academy, Ban played an active role in the training of Sith. Making her first appearance in the hit video game, Knights of the Old Republic, Ban also served as a minor character alongside Revan as he progressed through the Academy’s ranks (helping him in his quest to gain greater prestige with Wynn). Ban would later turn on Revan, only to be quickly defeated in combat. After sparing her life, Revan later convinced Yuthura to return to the Jedi Order and to leave the Sith forever.

Personality and Appearance

Yuthura Ban can be best-described as a self-starting, intelligent, and cunning warrior. She is a fierce opponent to nearly any adversary, using her anger and aggression to achieve victory no matter the cost. Such characteristics came at a heavy price, however, as she often allowed her anger to cloud her judgment; resulting in Ban making hasty decisions without thought of the long-term scheme of things. If not for Revan’s kindness and compassion, such feelings could have potentially cost Yathura her life.

In regard to appearance, Yuthura Ban is an incredibly sexy Twi’lek who possesses a long pair of lekku, violet-colored eyes, and purplish skin that gives her greater sex appeal. Although she dresses extremely modest (donning a Sith Officer uniform), the tight-fitting nature of her outfit reveals a lovely set of curves, including a large bust and wide hips. Combined with her tattoos and snarky personality, she is an incredibly sexy character worthy of our list.

Koyi Mateil.

Koyi Mateil.

5. Koyi Mateil

  • Height: Unknown
  • Eye Color: Brown
  • Skin Color: Orange

Koyi Mateil was an extremely wealthy Twi’lek duchess who first appeared in the hit movie, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Appearing for a brief moment outside the Galaxies Opera House on Coruscant, she is seen walking alongside Duke Teta as Anakin Skywalker promptly runs past the pair on his way to meet with the Supreme Chancellor. Rumored to be Teta’s wife, current information on Mateil indicates that her marriage was likely a farce, as she desired only his money and not his love/admiration. Unfortunately, little else is currently known about this lovely character, as her performance was extremely minor in the Star Wars universe (as of 2022).

Personality and Appearance

While absolutely nothing is currently known about Koyi Mateil’s personality (other than the fact that she loved both money and power), one thing is certainly clear: Mateil was an exceptionally sexy figure in Revenge of the Sith, and worthy of inclusion within our list. Characterized as tall and curvaceous, Mateil leaves nothing to the imagination with her bejewelled white dress that reveals tremendous cleavage and her large bust. Combined with her seductive orange skin, almond-shaped brown eyes, and silver headpiece that highlights her long lekku nicely, Koyi Mateil is an absolutely gorgeous Twi’lek that Star Wars fans would love to see more of in the future!

Lyn Me.

Lyn Me.

4. Lyn Me

  • Height: 5’3”
  • Eye Color: Brown
  • Skin Color: Light Blue

Lyn Me was a Twi’lek dancer that made her first appearance in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Born on the planet Ryloth, Lyn Me suffered tremendous hardships during her childhood as her village became a favorite target of slavers. Such attacks against her home were eventually quelled, however, with the aid of Boba Fett, who was hired by Me’s village elders to exterminate the slavers. From that moment on, the young Twi’lek developed an intense obsession over the famed bounty hunter, following his every move on the HoloNet with enthusiasm.

As Lyn Me grew older, her passion for dancing and entertainment also grew more pronounced, leading her to find work off-world once she reached adulthood. Her lucky break came when she was introduced to the famous Max Rebo, who persuaded Me to join his band as a dancer and backup singer. The group performed all over the galaxy, and were eventually invited to perform for Jabba the Hutt inside his palace. There, Lyn Me was thrilled to discover that her hero, Boba Fett, was in attendance and asked to meet up with the famous bounty hunter again in the near future. Such things were not to be, however, as the destruction of Jabba’s sail barge and the presumed death of Boba Fett proved devastating to the young dancer. Little is currently known about what transpired next for Lyn Me. Nevertheless, it is believed that Me swore to avenge the supposed death of her hero (an act that thankfully never came to fruition).

Personality and Appearance

Very little is currently known or understood about Lyn Me’s personality. However, given her history, it is easy to state that Me possessed an obsessive personality that was well-pronounced. In spite of this flaw though, Me was also an extremely hard-working individual, with a likeable personality, and strong devotion to her friends and co-workers. She also appears to have possessed a remarkably friendly disposition, having befriended Sy Snootles, Rystall Sant, and Greeata Jendowanian with relative ease.

In regard to Lyn Me’s appearance, only a handful of Twi’leks have managed to match or exceed her overall beauty and sex appeal in the Star Wars universe. Although she is relatively short (at only 5’3”), Me possesses an incredibly well-proportioned body that is both curvy and aesthetically pleasing to viewers. She is also one of the most scantly-clad ladies appearing on our list, wearing only a black leather-tape costume that reveals a great deal of cleavage, skin, and thigh. Combined with her brown eyes and seductive charm, Lyn Me is an exceptionally sexy character, and a clear choice for the 10 sexiest Twi’leks.

Aayla Secura.

Aayla Secura.

3. Aayla Secura

  • Height: 5’6”
  • Eye Color: Hazel
  • Skin Color: Blue

Aayla Secura served as both a Jedi Master and general, making her first appearance in the hit movie, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. As a former Padawan of Quinlan Vos, Secura quickly rose through the ranks of the Jedi, reaching the rank of Master just before the Clone Wars began. With war raging across the galaxy between the Confederacy and Republic, Aayla Secura was placed in command of the 327th Star Corps division alongside Clone Commander CC-5052 (known affectionately as “Commander Bly”). The pair proved themselves in countless battles for the Republic, securing countless victories over the droid armies (starwars.fandom.com).

As the war drew to an inevitable close, Secura and Bly were eventually tasked with leading a massive invasion of the planet Felucia. The move would be Secura’s last as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine’s issuing of “Order 66” would lead to her demise. Despite her attempt to draw her lightsaber in defense, Secura’s clones quickly gunned down the Jedi, making her one of the first victims of the great Jedi purge that ensued.

Personality and Appearance

Throughout the Clone Wars series, Aayla Secura is characterized as extremely intelligent, mischievous, compassionate, as well as incredibly gifted in the art of lightsaber combat. Combined with her natural agility, she was renowned for her ability to outwit and overwhelm opponents with relative ease. If Secura could have anticipated the betrayal of her clones a second earlier, it is probable that she could have escaped death.

In regard to her appearance, Aayla Secura was an incredibly attractive Jedi Master, and possessed a number of aesthetically pleasing attributes, including: beautiful blue skin, hazel colored eyes, and long head-tails. Combined with her slim and athletic build, large bust, and revealing clothing (which revealed a great deal of her torso), Secura is easily one of the sexiest Twi’leks of the Star Wars universe; a feat that will likely remain for the foreseeable future.

Oola.

Oola.

2. Oola

  • Height: 5’2”
  • Eye Color: Black
  • Skin Color: Green

Oola was a Twi’lek slave who worked as a dancer for the vile gangster, Jabba the Hutt. Making her first appearance in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Oola is believed to have been born on the planet Ryloth to a clan chieftain. Although very little is currently known about her origins, some believe that Oola was extremely devoted to dancing, and pursued the career further (on Tatooine) once she was old enough to leave Ryloth.

Despite her best efforts, Oola’s successful dancing career was short-lived on Tatooine as she quickly fell out of favor and was sold into slavery. After being purchased for entertainment purposes by Jabba, it remains unclear how long Oola remained at Jabba’s palace. During a live performance by the Max Rebo Band, however, she quickly met her demise after refusing her master’s advances. To make an example of her, Jabba proceeded to feed Oola to his pet Rancor, ending her life (and career) in a quick and devastating manner.

Personality and Appearance

Oola is portrayed by the beautiful Femi Taylor who worked as both a professional dancer and actress during the 1980s. Characterized as a brazen, vain, and naïve sort, Oola is, nevertheless, remarkably principled and brave, struggling against her tormentor to the very end of her life. In regard to her overall appearance, few characters in the Star Wars universe are capable of matching Oola’s natural beauty and style. Sporting a skimpy fishnet garment, Oola was never shy about showcasing her beautiful green skin to outsiders. Coupled with her slim (yet curvaceous) body, black eyes, large bust, and long lekku, she is clearly one of the sexiest Star Wars characters (and Twi’leks) of all time.

Darth Talon.

Darth Talon.

1. Darth Talon

  • Height: Unknown
  • Eye Color: Yellow
  • Skin Color: Red with Black Tattoos

Darth Talon is a beautiful Twi’lek character that made her first appearance in the Legacy comic book series. Serving as a Sith under the control of Darth Krayt, Talon is considered both a beautiful and extremely deadly character. She is renowned in the Star Wars universe for her incredible loyalty as well as her devotion to the Dark Side of the Force. Characterized as a “third-generation Sith,” Darth Talon originally grew up at the Sith Academy on Korriban where she served as Darth Ruyn’s apprentice. Due to her natural Force abilities and skills, however, Talon quickly advanced through the ranks acquiring the respect and admiration of Darth Krayt (the “One Sith” founder). Eventually, Talon was given the task to kill her former master (Ruyn) as a test of loyalty to the Sith, which she executed swiftly without question. For her loyalty, Darth Krayt promoted Talon to the rank of “Hand,” designating her as one of his most faithful and trusted assassins (starwars.fandom.com).

Personality and Appearance

As is the case with the majority of Sith, Darth Talon is characterized as both cold and ruthless in her overall demeanor, while simultaneously possessing an unwavering devotion and loyalty to the Emperor. For these reasons, she is often considered fanatical by her opponents. In spite of this, however, Talon lacks basic leadership skills as well as the capacity for independent thinking (due to her early upbringing in Sith Academy). She more than makes up for these deficiencies though with her tremendous lightsaber skills and Force techniques (which include Force lightning, Force concealment, as well as Force push to name only a few).

In regard to her overall appearance, Darth Talon is an incredibly sexy character renowned for her dark red body and black tattoos that adorn her skin. Talon is also quite busty and leaves little to the imagination with her skimpy attire that reveals much of her body. This includes a high-cut bikini-style bottom, a black top, gloves, and boots (HobbyLark.com). In combination with her curvaceous figure and seductive nature, Darth Talon is clearly the sexiest Twi’lek in the Star Wars universe.
