- "Ortolan secretions are quite distinctive."
- ―Inspector Thanoth
Biology and appearanceEdit
Ortolans were a sentient species of squat, blue-skinned bipeds with trunk-like noses and two beady black eyes. They also possessed small mouths filled with blunted teeth behind their noses and a pair of large, floppy ears, which were sensitive to sound and used to store fat. Lacking arms, Ortolans instead manipulated objects using their feet, whose articulated toes were able to absorb food and drink. According to Inspector Thanoth, their secretions were "quite distinctive." Ortolans were capable of speaking Galactic Basic and their average lifespan was 71+ years.
