Sy Snootles was a female Pa'lowick singer, and was also the lead vocalist for the Max Rebo Band during the time of the Galactic Civil War. Snootles and her associated acts were favorites of the Hutt crime families; during the Clone Wars, in her solo career days, Snootles also acted as a part-time bounty hunter, being responsible for the assassination of Ziro the Hutt, her former lover, on Teth after being hired by Jabba.
She was a very close friend with dancer Greeata Jendowanian, and did not sign to sing for Max until Greeata's position was secured as well. Snootles also had a great relationship with fellow band member Droopy McCool. One of Snootles' most famous songs was "Lapti Nek," also a favorite of Jabba.
In her younger years Sy Snootles served the Hutt crime; family as a singer but also a part-time bounty hunter and assassin. Somtime after Ziro's death she was the lead singer on the Kuari Princess where she would meet Greeata the two became friends and eventually left the luxury ship to start a duo career. While touring the galaxy Sy and Greeata meet male Letaki named Evar Orbus at the Green planet nightclub on Tothis he asked them to join his band the two girls accepted deal and joined his band. However Evar would later be killed by a rival band after their preformance at Mos Eisley on Tatooine Sy decided to have Rebo became the leader of the band which would to the band's life long contract deal with Jabba.
Unknown to the band Sy Snootles started working for the crim lord as a spy for extra credits and to try and change Jabba's mind about the deal.
When the band was sent to preform for Bingo Mehndra Sy knew they were really sent kill him however the female Pa'lowick didn't know about the explosives in the speakers that would have not only killed the target but the band to thanks to Droopy McCool who discovered the termite they setup a hologram of one of their shows which saved their lives. Jabba replaced all their instruments and Snootles was payed secretly pay for the Baltis assassination.
While the Pa'lowick didn't like being in Jabba's Palace she did enjoy the party the Hutt hosted. When the band was not playing Snootles took breaks and mingled with the guests at the party. When the started playing again Snootles went back the stage to sing.
She also watched Oola a fellow friend with Sy and the other band members she thought about how great she was at dancing and how beautiful she was Sy could understand why she was the hutt's favorite pet. When Oola was sent screaming into the rancor pit Sy's response was oops uh oh.
Reactions to Oola's ExecutionEdit
Sy Snootles knew what would happen to the Twi'lek woman when fell into the pit below she had seen it before but even though she had she still followed the crowd to the mild of the room. She made bets that the girl was going to die. Sy watched Oola shake from the cold and fear Sy thought poor girl well at least she is finally going to escape the palace normally Oola didn't care if she was going to die just as long as she got the palace she called hell but to was a day that she didn't to die she wanted to escape with her life and Snootles knew that was not going. Oola didn't want to die not while her freedom was so colse no this shouldn't happen she thought Luke is coming please please master let me live.
When the metal door slowly opened Snootles wondered what monster was the Hutt going to use to kill her with he had many deadly creatures as the giant beast stepped out of the darkness she finally got the answer he was using the rancor. Oola tried many things to stay alive something Snootles had seen before. After the animal finally caught it's meal it dangled Oola and eyed her for a while Oola knew that she by the way the thing looked at her it wanted to not only eat her but remember the beautiful girl this scared her even more.
After two bites Oola was dead and Sy won the bet she was right the girl died. When Oola was in the rancor's grasp Snootles thought that she might loss the bet she had seen that look in the rancor's eyes before the look of lust it didn't just want to eat her it wanted to use her for the same purpose her master did lucky the giant beast didn't have a good meal for a while or Oola would have become a plaything for the giant monster. She had seen it before but it was something that rarely happened Snootles was glad that it was more hungry then lustful she still had the memories of the last girl the rancor decided not eat.
As she turned to walk back to the stage she looked at Lyn Me who was smiling about Oola's sickening demise and didn't notice Jabba's and the men in the palace looking at her. Sy Snootles warned but Lyn Me agnored the clues just like Oola agnored the shouts from Snootles and Yowza to not resist Jabba right before she was cast down into the pit. Well if Lyn Me didn't listen to the band about attracting to much attention its her own fault when she ends up being chained right beside Jabba something that Snootles knew that Lyn Me always tried to avoid. When Leia was brought before Jabba Sy Snootles knew that the human becoming a slave kept Lyn Me safe from the mighty Hutt.
Jabba's Demolition GamesEdit
When Jabba hosted his deadly demolition game Sy Snootles performed with the band as Greeata Jendowanian and Lyn Me served as hostess give the guests food and drinks. During the deadly demolition sport Sy Snootles, Rystall and Greeata noticed Lyn Me was just a few steps away from being chained to Jabba's throne she was asked to dance like Oola and model for the race. Sy could believe that Lyn Me hadn't noticed Sy knew that by the time she finally noticed a chain and collar would already be around her neck. During the Demolition Games Sy Snootles made bets just like everyone else on who would live, die or win.
Leia is DiscoveredEdit
Sy Snootles was awakened after Leia was captured when she tried to free Han Solo the guards ordered her to came to the harem and the court room with the rest of the female singers. After being in service for a long time Sy know to obey what ever the Hutt lord wanted but the guards also knew not to cross the female Pa'lowick her long loyal service to their master put in a very high rank.
Sy Snootles and the other girls in the palace trained princess Leia in the harem and the throne room. Snootles all the slaves felt pity the girl but also felt something that she didn't tell anyone relief for Lyn Me who was was lucky that the princess came to the palace Sy Snootles grew very close to the members of her band though she knew not to stick her neck out for anyone Sy would have hated to lose a member of the band. Snootles hated seeing anyone with collar on and treated as slave not just her fellow band members.
Even though she was a singer in a band Sy Snootles also acted as spy for the Hutt and guardian to slaves because her old ties to his family. In the short time as Jabba slave Sy asked to be a guardian for the princess the Hutt agreed because Jabba knew he could trust her. Sy Snootles formed a sisterly bond with Leia just like she did with all the slaves and her oldest friend Greeata. Like all girls in the palace Sy gave the princess helpful tips to understand about the slave girls new master and everything in the palace Snootles was impressed with how quickly the human learned to obey Jabba. Because of her obedience and her feisty attitude Sy noticed that the master loved princess Leia more than any other slave he had owned she watched him love a few but not as much as Leia the princess was girl he never wanted to release no matter what happened.
Even when she refused him the Hutt just laughed and loved it Jabba didn't want to break her like the others he didn't want another willing slave girl. Unlike Oola and other girls he didn't want to kill her for resisting him he enjoyed her company more than an other slaves. Leia was Jabba's new favorite and Sy Snootles knew what that meant the girls in the harem were free to everyone else in the palace she shuttered at the thought of that.
When Luke Skywalker arrived at the palace Sy Snootles thought that the jedi's plan would fail and couldn't rescue his friends or anyone else who we're prisoners to the mighty Jabba the Hutt. When Luke fell into the dark pit below Sy knew that would happen however she didn't know that Jubnuk would also fall. Like everyone one else she was glad to be rid of Gammorean guard and placed a bet only on the pig that he would die. Jubnuk's death wasn't as satisfying to the thugs and guests in the palace but Snootles could tell they enjoyed she didn't get excited like everyone did but Sy Snootles didn't like the Gammorean like she pretended to care her career as spy, assassin and bounty hunter helped to give her the abilities to kill him if anyone payed her to kill the fat pig. After the Gamorrean's remains were swallowed after the third bite Snootles won another bet. When Luke killed the rancor Sy Snootles wasn't impressed she was scared of the Hutt's wrath and that the rebels plan would succeed and the might perish the their Hutt master.
