Biology and appearanceEdit
Whiphids were tall, bulky bipeds covered in long, coarse fur. The Whiphid face, which featured retractable eyes, bowed cheekbones and a prominent forehead, was mostly hairless. Two large, up-turned tusks sprouted from the lower jaw. Younglings were much less hairy than their elders.
Whiphids in the galaxyEdit
During the Galactic Civil War, the Whiphid crime lady Valarian operated on Tatooine, in the Outer Rim Territories. Her lover, a fellow Whiphid named J'Quille, infiltrated the palace of her rival, Jabba the Hutt.
