There is no story involved here, just a Rutian (aquablue skin) Twi'lek kneeling with her back turned.<hr>
The tentacles are called lekku, or brain-tails. Twi'leks possessed a fairly standard humanoid vocal structure and were capable of learning most alien languages; however, they usually preferred their native language of Twi'leki, which incorporated subtle movement of the lekku. Twi'lek females were often used as slaves or dancers because of their beauty. The natural grace and exotic beauty of the female Twi'leks made them a popular target among slave traders. Many Twi'leks actually encouraged the slave market on their own planet. Some saw it as a chance to make money by kidnapping or selling orphaned children, while others saw slavery as a way of saving children from growing up in Ryloth's harsh environment. A number of Twi'leks believed that slavery was an efficient way to proliferate their species and preserve their culture, as the Twi'leks lacked their own means of inter-planetary travel. Regardless of how it came about, many Twi'leks lived as slaves or entertainers and were considered status symbols, especially the females of rarer skin hues: the Rutian (aquablue) and Lethan (red) Twi'leks.<hr>
Twi'lek is from the Star Wars franchise and is the copright of Lucas Films and George Lucas
