Gotals were a species of tall, humanoid sentients native to the moon Antar IV. Their most distinctive features were the twin conical horns growing on the top of their heads, which acted as highly responsive electro-magnetic sensors and caused discomfort when exposed to complex electrical systems, like droids. Gotals were also covered with distinctive short fur, that shed rather easily.
Gotals were part of galactic society as far back as the early days of the Galactic Republic, and were represented in the Galactic Senate as well as the Jedi Order, however throughout the Secessionist Movement, their homeworld of Antar IV was held by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, leading to a diaspora that had many Gotals flee to the colony world of Atzerri. As a result, Gotals were often seen off-world on planets such as Coruscant, Tatooine, and Lothal. Many Gotal were sympathetic to the Empire.
