The Rseikharhls were a sentient species native to the Rseik system in the sector of the same name, located next to the Minos Cluster, Tarabba, Tamarin and Svivreni sectors. The Rseikharhls managed law enforcement across the entire sector, and, being technologically adept, designed and constructed droids to aid in this undertaking.
One such droid model was the bipedal LE-VO law enforcement droid. The model was remarkably successful, securing 22,000 arrests and no fatalities across a ten-year period. It was due to this remarkable record that the Galactic Empire permitted the Rseikharls to continue their policing of the sector despite the New Order's pro-Human policies.
The Rseikharhls' droids could be found on many frontier worlds in the Outer Rim Territories, such as Tatooine, acting as local constabularies. They were also available for sale through illegal sources such as Cynabar's Droid Datalog for 9,000.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Rseikharhls were created for the 1995 West End Games sourcebook Galladinium's Fantastic Technology, in an entry on the LE-VO law enforcement droid created by Mike Kogge for The Fantastic Technology Contest. The droid, and its connection to the Rseikharhls, was subsequently revisited in Cynabar's Fantastic Technology: Droids, published in 1997. The Essential Atlas, published in 2009, created a Rseik system, which author Jason Fry later confirmed is the Rseikharhl's homeworld.
