Abinyshi were a sentient species native to the planet of Inysh. They were bipedal, slender beings with long, supple limbs, flat faces, and forked tails. They developed space travel about the same time as the Corellians and Duros, but their technology was not as advanced. Their colonizations were limited to planets near Inysh. The Galactic Empire strip-mined Inysh for kalonterium, resulting in toxic pollution that so devastated the Abinyshi they were believed to be extinct. Small numbers did survive in hiding, and some Abinyshi joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
