The Leresai (adj. Leresen) of the Mid Rim were a species which sided against the Bothans during the Caamas Document crisis in 19 ABY. When two Leresai were killed in a riot on Bothawui, the Leresen law (summarized as "Claw for claw, horn for horn, life for life") demanded vengeance. According to the Leresai, if they could not have the deaths of two guilty Bothans, they were entitled to kill twenty of their "tribe". They accomplished this by destroying a zero-gravity crystal factory in Bothawui orbit. General Wedge Antilles and Rogue Squadron attempted to stop the Leresai warships, but the weapons systems on their X-wings had been sabotaged by Leresai on Di'tai'ni. The Leresai openly admitted this sabotage - in their view, it was an honorable action that prevented neutral New Republic forces from harm.
The Leresai were also noted for surprisingly melodious voices.
