Biology and appearanceEdit
The Jentari—"the makers of Sekot"—were huge cybernetic organisms that were bred by the Magisters of Zonama Sekot to be factories on the living planet. They were tree-like creatures that understood the needs of Sekot and channeled the world's energy into the constructs that were built within them. With "thick green and purple trunks, gleams of metal, glints of other artificial substances, supplements, add-ons," these giant organisms were involved with complex tasks involving the delicate, fluid shaping of Zonama Sekotan ships, which included Sekotan personal starships.
During the Yuuzhan Vong War, Zonama Sekot was forced to make a blind hyperspace jump in order to avoid the sabotage done to its hyperdrives by Nom Anor. As a result of this, the planet suffered a great deal of trauma on its surface forcing the Ferroans to flee underground to avoid the ecological damage while the Jentari themselves went into hiding.
Behind the scenesEdit
The reference of the Jentari as Shapers links them to the Yuuzhan Vong as part of their shared origin.
