Ugnaughts: The Mandalorian season 3 characters explained

Ugnaughts are a porcine humanoid race of aliens who have made several appearances in the Star Wars franchise before with their most recent portrayal taking place in The Mandalorian.

Ugnaughts originally hail from the planet Gentes but many of them who were recruited to build the Cloud City of Bespin considered that their home. Their species was spread across the galaxy because of their well-renowned work ethic.

The Ugnaughts were considered one of the hardest-working species in the galaxy who had brilliant problem-solving skills and were particularly adept droid smiths as well.

When Din Djarin and Bo-Katan visit Plazir-15, they come across the Ugnaughts responsible for the droid maintenance in the domed settlement.

Diligent workers

When they arrive at the Ugnaught workshop, the mechanics are hard at work and pay no heed to Bo-Katan’s words. Din Djarin uses his experiences to get their attention, speaking to them in their distinct form of communication.

Bo tells them about the malfunctioning droids but they insist that it is not the case as that would mean their work is not up to the standards held. Djarin once again frames things in a way that is favorable to them and they agree to help.

The Ugnaughts agreed to sit down with Din Djarin and Bo-Katan

They provide him with the location of the next possible malfunction and later, he explains to Bo that her method of questioning read as an insult toward them.

A close friend

Most of Djarin’s knowledge of Ugnaughts came from his interactions with Kuiil, an Ugnaught he met during his travels trying to capture his bounty, Grogu.

Kuiil proved to be an incredibly useful ally and was also responsible for reprogramming IG-11, the one droid that Din Djarin trusted in his life.

Kuill stayed behind to keep Grogu safe while Djarin traveled to Nevarro but unfortunately lost his life while trying to escape after being warned about incoming stormtroopers.
