The Langhesi were a race of red-skinned humanoids indigenous to the planet Langhesa, presumably in the Langhesa system. Like the Qella and the extragalactic Yuuzhan Vong, the Langhesi could mold and shape life into new forms. They spoke Langhesan.
In 129 BBY, their homeworld was conquered and the species was enslaved by the Tsinimals who saw their technology as a sin against their gods. Because of this, the Langhesi engaged in a mass migration across the galaxy. They specialized in producing unique pets for the rich of the Galactic Republic.
In 89 BBY, some Langhesi migrated to the living world of Zonama Sekot. These were responsible for shaping Sekotan technology and building the massive hyperdrive on Zonama Sekot. The Langhesi composed approximately 3% of the population of the planet.
