Ruurians were a species of multi-limbed sentients with feathered antennae from the planet Ruuria. Slyyth, a Ruurian criminal, lived on Lothal around 3272 LY.

Biology and appearanceEdit

The Ruurian life cycle consisted of three biological stages. They started life as larva-like creatures with with sixteen limbs, large multifaceted eyes, feathered antennae, and stunted wings. At a certain advanced age, they entered the pupa stage, spinning a cocoon around themselves and undergoing internal changes by which larval structures were replaced by those typical of their latest form. At the end of the pupal stage, the Ruurian would emerge as a beautiful chroma-wing. During that final phase, the sole desires of a Ruurian were eating, mating, and fluttering along the riverbanks of their homeworld.[2]

Society and cultureEdit

For most Ruurians, their final chroma-wing incarnation was an enviable fate. Some of them, however, were terrified by the prospect of changing forever, regarding their metamorphosis as a fate worse than death. Those frightened larvae could get special treatments allowing them not to enter the final stage of their biology.[2]
