Givins were a sentient species from the planet Yag'Dhul. They had the appearance of an animated skeleton, and were renowned for their mathematical genius. During the Galactic Civil War, the Givin cryptographer Drusil Bephorin was recruited into the Alliance to Restore the Republic.

Biology and appearanceEdit

The Ante, a Givin infochant

Givins were a species of white-skinned, hairless humanoids who, to human eyes, looked like animated skeletons.[1] Their facial features included sharp downward angles, large triangular eye sockets,[5] and sloped-up brows that met together in the middle, lending them an appearance of permanent anguish.[1] Because of the harsh environment of their homeworld, the Givin's organs were sealed away from the atmosphere. Thanks to that, they could survive for a short while in vacuum.[1]

Society and cultureEdit

Mathematics were central to the Givin culture. Because of that, many of them became experts in a number of scientific fields. It was polite to address a Givin with an equation for them to answer, a custom known as greeting maths. The Givin would respond with an equation of their own. When dealing with other, less mathematically minded, species Givins would ask an equation with an answer of three for convenience.[1]

Givins in the galaxyEdit

Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, a Givin was among the barflies attending the cantina of Mos Eisley the day Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker met Han Solo and Chewbacca.[6] Later, Skywalker went on a dangerous mission to free Drusil Bephorin, a renowned Givin cryptographer, so she could join the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[1]
