The Vendarans were a species of near-Humans that resulted from an ancient colonization attempt. The Vendarans developed legends wherein giant forms of a native predator, the skeeg, were hunted for meat.

Biology and appearanceEdit

The Vendarans were a sentient species of near-Humans[1]—a classification for species very similar to base-line Humans, but which had evolved unique adaptations to their environment.[2]


The Vendarans inhabited the planet Vendara as the descendants of an ancient colonization attempt. The planet,[1] which was located in the northeastern portion of the Outer Rim Territories and part of the Kwymar sector,[3] included many rainforests and swamps. Therein dwelt the skeeg, a predatory mollusk known for its use in the manufacture of natural perfumes. The Vendaran culture contained legends of a time when giant sea-dwelling skeegs were hunted for meat and the creation of poisons; however, by the time of the New Republic, the modern skeeg was much smaller. The Vendarans had contact with the wider galaxy, including poachers that traveled to Vendara to capture skeegs.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Chuck Truett created the Vendarans for the West End Games sourcebook Creatures of the Galaxy, a 1994 supplement to Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.
