Biology and appearanceEdit
Talz were large bipeds covered in thick, shaggy white fur with sharp talons capping their five-fingered hands. They possessed four black eyes (the small ones were used for day vision, and the larger ones for night vision) and a small proboscis for feeding and communicating.
Society and cultureEdit
The Talz were a primitive civilization that used few tools and lived a simple life in a harsh environment. They organized themselves in tribes led by chieftains, and used the native narglatches as mounts and protection. They had a language of their own, called Talzzi, but were unable to speak Galactic Basic.
The Talz hailed from Orto Plutonia, a frigid planet located in the Pantora system. During the Clone Wars, both the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems attempted to establish outposts on Orto Plutonia, only to be wiped out by the natives. Eventually, Chieftain Thi-Sen of a Talz tribe encountered the Pantoran Senator Riyo Chuchi, and the two negotiated a peace treaty between Orto Plutonia and Pantora.
Talz in the galaxyEdit
By the time of the Clone Wars, the Talz were not advanced enough to master space travel. During the Galactic Civil War, however, some Talz could be found on planets such as Tatooine, Espirion, and Son-tuul. At least one Talz was present at Chalmun's Cantina when Obi-Wan Kenobi saved Luke Skywalker from Cornelius Evazan and Ponda Baba by cutting off the latter’s arm.
