This species was distinguished by their gray fur which coated their entire bodies except for their faces and underbellies, which was lighter in color. They also possessed long tails which had a fin-like shape at the end. They had long pointed ears and fingers tipped with with gray claws.
The known members of the species seen in the galaxy were not known to wear substantial clothing. However, they did wear elaborate jewelry, which included earrings and large headdresses which tied their hair into a sloping position which ran off the back of their heads. Additionally, they were seen wearing belts which ran around their wastes and were woven into the base of their tails. At least one member of the species wore a bikini top while in the service of the Hutts.
Presence in the galaxyEdit
Members of the species were seen working for the Hutts during the time of the Galactic Republic. They provided food for their masters and were seen fanning patrons of the Hutts' court. At least one member of the species was used as a slave girl and was part of Jabba Desilijic Tiure's harem.
After the fall of the Empire and the rise of the New Republic, one female member of the species represented her people as a diplomat on the planet Coruscant. She was seen with several other senators, including a Dug and a Twi'lek who all owned saw-toothed granks.
Behind the scenesEdit
This species has not been named canonically. It first appeared in The Art of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace in 1999 drawn by artist Terryl Whitlatch. Drawn as a concept for a potential species in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, they were designed as servants for the Hutts. However, the design was not approved for inclusion in the film, and the species did not appear in The Phantom Menace. The second appearance of the species was in The Wildlife of Star Wars: A Field Guide in 2001, also drawn by Terryl Whitlatch, appearing in a list of senators with their favorite pets, in addition to in a circus troope.
