The Geonosian race is a species of Alien that originated from the Star Wars film Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. They also appeared in the animated TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They are insect-like and have many distinguishing insect features such as wings, shells, bug eyes, and are born very much like insect larva from their queen Karina the Great.
They are native the planet Geonosis which sounds similar to their name, as it came from the name of the planet. Other than Karina the Great, the Geonosians are led by Poggle the Lesser who appeared in the original sequel while Karina only appeared in the TV series. They are allied with the Separatists in the war.
