Taun We was a Kaminoan who specialized in cloning. She was among the Kaminoans who created the Grand Army of the Republic from the bounty hunter Jango Fett, who was recruited by Darth Tyranus (or commonly known as Count Dooku).
Taun We was a Kaminoan female administrative aide who served Prime Minister Lama Su during the last years of the Galactic Republic. Prior to the Clone Wars, the planetary government of Kamino was commissioned by Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas to create an army of clone troopers for the Republic. Taun We worked alongside the clone army's genetic donor, a human bounty hunter called Jango Fett, overseeing the clone troopers' development in Tipoca City. Although Fett lacked pride in the army that was modeled on his template, Taun We was satisfied with the clones' progress, noting that every unit met with her people's expectations. Ultimately, she believed that the clones would grow into the finest soldiers ever produced on Kamino.
During the last days of the Separatist Crisis, Taun We greeted Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi upon his arrival in Tipoca City. Unaware of Kenobi's mission to find the mercenary who tried to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala, Taun We presumed that he was sent by the Jedi Order's High Council to inspect the clone units. Kenobi used Taun We's naïveté to infiltrate the cloning facility which, in turn, led to his discovery of Jango and Boba Fett. After the Clone Wars, Taun We continued to serve as Lama Su's aide during the early days of the Galactic Empire until her death at the hands of the bounty hunter Fennec Shand.
