Tipoca City is the capital of the planet of Kamino. It is the home of Lama Su, the prime minister of Kamino, Jango Fett, Taun We, and Boba Fett. Tipoca City is also known as the largest cloning facility on Kamino. This architecture is built to withstand the high winds and constant storms on Kamino. It is also built on stilts to protect it from the powerful waves of the ocean below.

The Kaminoans are aliens that come from the stormy planet of Kamino. They are white-skinned and have long necks. Experts at cloning, they produced the clone army used by the Republic. Their entire society is genetically engineered. This occurred in response to rising sea levels on their home planet. The males have crests on their heads; this is a remnant of the Kaminoans evolving from the sea.

The Rebellion

After the rise of Darth Sidious and the Galactic Empire the Kaminoans, like all other alien species, were oppressed due to the Emperor Palpatine’s bias against non-humans, and possibly enslaved to the Empire. When word got out to the Kaminoans that an uprising rebellion known as the “Alliance to Restore the Republic”, was forming, Kaminoans saw a chance at freedom, and a few rogue Kaminoan clonemasters secretly banded together and started the cloning of a new clone army of Republic Clone Troopers to aid and help the Rebel Alliance. A full 7 years after the end of the Clone Wars, Darth Vader uncovered the plot. The rogue Kaminoans prepared to fight the 501st legion, who were on their way to Kamino, to do battle with the rogue “Anti Imperial Rogue Clone Troopers”, thus starting the rebellion of Kamino. Vader sent Boba Fett, because of his knowledge and expertise of the planet he was born on. This conflict caused the Anti-Imperial troops to turn against their brothers, the Imperial Stormtroopers. Boba Fett and the 501st legion attacked and stormed Kamino, seizing and securing the planet’s cloning technology for the Empire, and eliminating all the rogue Kaminoan clonemasters and their anti-clone troops.

Those Kaminoans who remained alive were oppressed and enslaved by the Empire. They were forced to help Imperial Specialists create more clones from a variety of different clone templates to serve as Stormtroopers for the Galactic Empire. It is believed that several dozen Kaminoans accompanied the Death Star into the Uncharter Territories.
