"About five hundred years ago the humans on Rocantor were infected by a plague that jumped the species barrier from the Rocanar—the planet's original sentient inhabitants. There was massive loss of life. When the last of the funeral pyres stopped burning, the surviving Rocantor humans took over. Banned all sentient nonhumans from the planet."
―Padmé Amidala[src]

The Rocanar were a sentient species native to the planet Rocantor. When Human colonists arrived on the world around 500 BBY, they fell victim to a plague that was originally carried by the Rocanar. After the disease ran its course, killing scores of sentients, the Human Rocantori took control of the planet and banned all non-Humans from living there. The surviving Rocanar were sold into slavery off world.[1]
