The Khoan were a species who, though shorter than Humans, weighed twice the average Wookiee. They had yellow skin, a dorsal fin, and spikes on their faces. These spikes fanned around the face, forming a spiked collar around their faces. Khoan imagined themselves as the fairest of all intergalactic races

A Khoan played against Han Solo in fan-tan at the Fifteen Moons Casino on Ord Mantell, shortly after the Battle of Yavin.
