Reptilian, red neck frill
Marits were a species of sentient beings brought by Human colonists to the world of Gaftikar, a forested planet with vast grassy plains. They were meter-tall reptilian humanoids. The Marits had light beige scales that were slightly iridescent. They had sharp muzzles and small black eyes with red slit-like pupils. The dominant members had red neck frills. These dominant members were mostly female, as this was a matriarchal society. When Humans settled Gaftikar, the Marits were enlisted to build the cities of the planet, due to their reputation for being brilliant mathematicians. When the cities were finished, the Humans expelled the Marits from the new walled living places, effectively exiling the Marits in the wilderness.
The Marits were also natural engineers, and took to using and assembling the weapons given to them from the Republic, such as E-Web blasters, quite well with a natural ease.
Marits didn't like to waste things and had a custom where they would recycle the bodies of dead family members, by eating them. This led to Clone commando Darman Skirata of Omega Squad jokingly advising his squadmates to tell the Marits to not dig up and devour the bodies of two dead Covert Ops clone troopers that he had killed in self-defense.
