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.
Leaving her homeworld at a young age Greeata joined a band on the cruiseliner Kari Princess their she met Sy Snootles the two became good friends and famous.
Although not much is known about Greeata during her years of study, when the Kuari Princess docked on Coruscant in 21 BBY. 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 and Snootles joined the Max Rebo Band.
When Jabba sent the band to preform for Bingo Mehndra Greeata was surprised to learn that it was really an assassination plot. After this the rodian learned that she could get extra credits by doing more work like that for the might Jabba.
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.
Reaction to Oola's ExecutionEdit
Greeata and the band were still singing and dancing when the hutt lord got into a fight with his pet the band could see Oola and Jabba tugging on the rope tied to her collar but they were clueless to what was going to happen. When the floor disappeared beneath the dancer feet heard the young Oola's screams they stopped playing Sy Snootles response was "Oops uh Oh" John Yowza put a hand up to his mouth and Greeata put her hands up to her face. As the crowd rushed forward to the gate Greeata followed. Greeata saw the Twi'lek slave roll out of the tunnel that leads to the rancor pit the Rodin backup singer worried she no idea what was going to happen to the poor girl. Seeing the helpless slave look up with tears in her eye she felt sorry for her but Greeata was thought whatever was going to happen was she was glad to be up in the throne room and not down in Oola's place. Unlike Jabba's favorite slave the Rodin girl knew her place and not resist the crime lord while wishing for the girl be ok also she wished that the girl would have been smarter. Oola's shapely protruding reminded Greeata who lucky she was have her bikini costume and Oola's netting costume. Greeata jumped when she heard the metal opening what fate waited behind the door for this poor young the Rodin dancer was speechless when she saw the rancor shook with fear Greeata felt like asking the hutt to spare but the band singer didn't want to upset him for speaking out of line was afraid she would suffer the same fate so Greeata didn't say a word. Greeata didn't want Oola to die like this but hearing all the laugher as the slave ran with fear and pleaded for life the Greeata knew that one was going to help the girl no one wanted to help they wanted was to see her grusome demise this almost made her cry. Watching Oola struggle with her long leash made Greeata glad she didn't have one. Greeata hung her head in sadness seeing the girl trying to escape with away out. Before the rancor gobbled her up the claws tore apart Oola's flimsy netting exposing her skin. Even though she felt pity for Oola when everyone was smiling at her nude body Greeata did agree that she was still beautiful. When the rancor started eyeing and dangling it's food Greeata knew Oola's was not going to be quick. The first bite Greeata felt sick seeing how bloody and messy it was Oola was also still a live which made it even worst. The second bite Oola did not survive even though her pain ended it was still gross seeing blood and the body hang limp and then watching the rancor finish the last pieces was discussting. The pet slave was dead losers lost the bets almost every was happy Greeata turned way in horror as she did she thought I have to obey him so I can live and get out of here I don't want to die in this place like Oola. She shivers at the thought of the former dancers fate but also thinks of how she still liked gorgeous while in her predicament.
Jabba's Demolition GamesEdit
After Leia show disguised as Boushh Jabba announced that the demolition games would being Greeata and Lyn Me were ordered by their master to serve his thugs and guests as waitresses. When Tia and Ghia were placed in the the deadly derby after being replaced by Oola Greeata was scared that the twins would die. She was supparied about Oola's demise but when the twi'lek was killed Greeata was relieved thinking Jabba would change his mind and they would become his favorite pets again. The rodian pryed for the twins when the hutt didn't change his mind after see Oola die Greeata didn't want to see anyone one else close to her like Tia and Ghia die. Just like with Oola Greeata was pleased it was the twins who were in Jabba's sick game and not her.
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. Greeata didn't whish to see another execution after watching Oola's but the band they signed a lifetime contract so Greeata knew they have to do what ever he tells them. On the barge Greeata, Rystall and Lyn Me had to entertain and pleasure Jabba and his minions.
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. Greeata, Rystall and a few others went to see what they could loot from Jabba's Palace upon arrival the criminals still there noticed the girls and tried to catch them they failed and the girls got away.
Years later, Rystall and Greeata would be reunited with John Yowza in a new band, The Palpatones, with Greeata becoming the band's lead singer.
Personality & TraitsEdit
Greeata is a great singer and dancer. Like Greeata was eager to leave her homeworld show when she was kicked out for not following the Rodin way it didn't bother her nothing was going to stop her from living her dream.
She enjoyed her glamorous life aboard the Kuari Princess and enjoyed the high class fancy Galaxies Opera House. During her time on the Kuari Sy taught how to find comfort with other males outside of her race. As much as Greeata and Snootles enjoyed their life of luxury on the ship they wanted more so they and eventually joined the Max Rebo Band.
The casinos, nightclubs bars and stripclubs that the band went to were nothing like the Kuari Princess but Greeata only enjoyed living for the art of dancing and music. Jabba's Palace was not a great place to preform but Greeata just shrugged it off anything was better then the ruff life of Rodia.
Greeata cared for Oola and the other slave girls but not as much as she cared for herself. She enjoyed her freedom and she didn't want to jeopardize it. Being a performer Greeata was not bothered by her outfit she wore enjoyed fashion as much as she enjoyed enteraining and in hear eyes that outfit was more fashionable then the ones worn by the other slaves.
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.
