On the planet Tatooine, the Mos Eisley Cantina, also known as Chalmun's Cantina, is the hot spot for entertainment and intrigue. Many species intermingle there, spying and conducting shady business. Bounty hunters frequent the seedy joint, hoping to catch their prey in an unguarded moment. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker went to the cantina to find transportation off the planet, which led to their first meeting with Han Solo.
Momaw Nadon is an Ithorian, which are called "Hammerheads" throughout the galaxy. A peaceful gardener, he was exiled to Tatooine after he was forced to give agricultural secrets to the Empire. In the cantina, he learned Lt. Alima, his Imperial enemy, was seeking escaped droids. Using the information, Nadon finally got revenge against Alima for ruining his life.
