Peli Motto is a Star Wars Minifigure released in 2022.

Background

Peli Motto was a human female who managed Hangar 3-5 at Mos Eisley spaceport on the planet Tatooine. Motto was a skilled engineer and made her living repairing and refueling starships. Though scrappy and brutally honest, she was a compassionate and hardworking proprietor.

Years after the fall of the Galactic Empire, the bounty hunter Din Djarin – known simply by the alias, the Mandalorian—landed at Peli Motto’s hangar in desperate need of repairs. When he left to find work to cover Motto’s bill, the mechanic discovered an infant being, Grogu, alone aboard his gunship. Hoping to charge Djarin, Motto began caring for the child. Unknown to Motto, however, was that both Djarin and Grogu had a bounty on their heads, and rookie bounty hunter Toro Calican took Motto and Grogu hostage in a bid to collect on the prize. After a standoff with Djarin that left Calican dead, he paid Motto for the repairs and left with Grogu.

A short time after his first visit, Djarin returned to Tatooine and met with Motto for aid in his search for fellow Mandalorians. Motto sent him to the town Mos Pelgo, which was run by a marshal donning Mandalorian armor. When Djarin returned, having found that the sheriff was not a Mandalorian himself, Motto helped him once more by arranging a job that would lead him to a group of Mandalorians on Trask.

Some time after the rescue of Grogu from Moff Gideon, Djarin had informed Motto that he required a replacement for his former vessel, the Razor Crest, which had been destroyed during the mission to Tython. Upon receiving a message that she had found one, Djarin traveled to Tatooine, appearing at Hangar 3-5 just in time to save Motto from the grip of a womp rat which had snatched up a BD-unit droid she owned.

Peli removed a covering to reveal a decrepit N-1 starfighter that she had acquired. The Din Djarin agreed to help her with the modifications.

As Djarin conducted repairs on the ship, Motto enthusiastically returned with a vital modification component – a turbonic venturi assimilator. Djarin inquired as to where Motto attained this part; the mechanic stated that it came from Jawas, to Djarin’s relative surprise. Motto explained to a perplexed Djarin that she simply provided the Jawas with a list of items – in exchange for them finding and delivering the objects, she authorized them to raid her dumpsters. Djarin asked if he could meet them, to which Motto instructed R5-D4 to ascertain if they were present out back and to send for them. Motto then claimed that she had dated a Jawa for period of time.

When Grogu arrived via a R2-D2 piloted X-Wing she set out to deliver him to Din Djarin in Mos Espa. She arrived in the middle of the Pyke Syndicate attack on Boba Fett and aided in the defense.
