Nalydians were a a species of small brown-skinned humanoids from the planet Nalyd. By 138 ABY, they had developed a civilization among the stony pinnacles and mesas of their homeworld, which was covered in a swirling orange fog. They also succeeded in taming a spider-like species. They were known to have public executions in public arenas for various crimes including murder, assault, and the sabotage of public transport. One known Nalydian was the criminal Dieben, who was extradited back to Nalyd following the Carreras Incident to face execution for various felonies.
