Greeata was a Rodian born on Rodia a few years prior to the rise of the Galatic Empire. Instead of participating in the Rodian's love for death and violence, Greeata chose to focus on her love for dance and music. Although her interests made her an outcast from Rodian society, many of her species aknowledged her as "Greeata," which was a common name for female Rodians that meant "talented." Greeata decided to keep the name, and left Rodia to pursue her love for the arts.
Although not much is known about Greeata during her years of study, she did attend the Squid Lake performance at the Galaxies Opera House on Coruscant the night that Chancellor Palpatine told Anakin Skywalker of "The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise." Some time after the performance, Greeata joined the Max Rebo Band.
After years of touring the galaxy with her band mates, the Max Rebo Band drew the attention of Jabba the Hutt. Jabba was so impressed by the band's performance that he offered them a lifetime contract. Although they wouldn't get paid, they would get all the food they wanted, and have comfortable living conditions. The contract Jabba had offered them turned out to be a trick, and Greeata and the rest of the band were never allowed to leave Jabba's Palace. During their time under Jabba's "contract," Greeata used her impressive dancing abilities to be one of the band's backup dancers during "Jedi Rocks," which became one of the band's biggest hits. Since she hadn't been employed to Jabba for very long, Greeata and the rest of the band were shocked when Oola suddenly fell through the floor, screaming as she momentarily disappeared from view. Totally oblivious to the struggle between the Hutt and the miserable Twi'lek during their performance, Greeata followed the crowd to the large grate in the floor as a huge gate in the pit below screeched open. The rancor's growl echoed up into the throne room above, and Oola let out one last scream of sheer terror before the carnivorous beast bit down on the screaming girl. As everyone cheered at this change in entertainment, Greeata turned away in terror at the senseless cruelty.
Journey to the Pit of CarkoonEdit
Greeata and the rest of the Max Rebo Band would later accompany Jabba and his courtiers on Jabba's sail barge as they traveled to the Great Pit of Carkoon to watch Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Chewbacca be fed to the sarlacc that resided there. In the chaos that followed, Jabba was killed, the sail barge was destroyed, and Luke and his friends escaped. With Jabba dead, the band's eternal contract came to an end, and the band members managed to escape the sail barge moments before it exploded. With the end of their contract, the Max Rebo Band disbanded, and everyone went their separate ways.
Years later, Rystall and Greeata would be reunited in a new band, The Palpatones, with Greeata becoming the band's lead singer.
Like other members of her species, Greeata had large, pupil-less black eyes, a slender snout, and two saucer-like antennae atop her head, and a ridge of spines atop her skull. She had scaly green skin, and like other Rodians, her skin had a rough, pebbly texture. She had small breasts, and five dexterous fingers that ended with suction cups at her finger tips. Unlike most Rodians, Greeata was able to grow shoulder-length hair, stylizing it by dying it yellow and trimming it in the shape of a Mohawk.
Greeata Jendowanian's CostumeEdit
Like most of the women in Jabba's Palace, Greeata was forced to strip into an elaborate bikini. Fortunately for Greeata, her bikini wasn't nearly as scandalous as Lyn Me's or Oola's, and was actually one of the more modest bikinis that Jabba had in the palace. Greeata's bikini consisted of a long, orange skirt, and an orange, hard-shelled bra that was too big for her small breasts, held together by orange strips of cloth. Decorating the rest of her body were large, golden earrings, jewel-encrusted bracelets, golden anklets, and a golden necklace.
