The Lortans were a violent and expansionist group of Humans native to Lorta.


The group believed that someday a Man-Hutt would sweep evil from the galaxy. Approximately ten years prior to the Battle of Yavin they sent a battle fleet into twelve systems and virtually wiped out every planet, including the Jiroch system, in a genocide known as the Reslian Purge. The Lortans were finally stopped by the Galactic Empire, in a series of battles in which Soontir Fel participated.
