From the Expanded UniverseA Rodisar from the battlefields of Rodis, Nilo was once a general in the winter wars of that primitive world. He and his command staff were kidnapped in a Zygerrian slaver run, and most of his followers were killed trying to protect their general. The slavers sold Nilo to Rattataki war barons, impressing them with tales of Nilo's military exploits. Though strong and a capable brawler, in truth, Nilo was a lackluster military leader. He had climbed the corrupt military ranks of Rodis by bribing politicians. Most of the military experience came from his staff. General Nilo only experienced one fight in the Cauldron gladiator pit, and did not emerge alive.
Behind the ScenesNilo was based on an unused Gamorrean Guard concept sketches by concept artist Nilo Rodis-Jamero during the production of Return of the Jedi.
