The Chubbits were a race of reptiloids native to the deserts of Aridus. The Chubbits were drawn into the Alliance when Darth Vader planted an actor on Aridus. The actor was to portray Obi-Wan Kenobi, in an effort to trick Luke Skywalker to the planet. The actor became Vader's nemesis, though, when he began to believe in what Kenobi and the Alliance stood for. The Chubbits were taken by the false Kenobi's passion and valor, and assisted him in the destruction of Imperial troops. The average chubbit stands about a meter tall, and had mottled green skin.
