Balosar are a frail, near-human race native to the Core World Balosar. They're almost universally victimized and most commonly associated with the Galactic death stick trade.
Physiology and Culture
Balosar are a thin humanoid race with retractable antennae and bristly hair. The antennae can sense strong emotions and convey very limited precognition in dangerous situations.
Their home world of Balosar is almost uninhabitable, the atmosphere and oceans having been reduced to a festering mix of pollutants. Crime is endemic and the government hugely corrupt. Native Balosar despair of any respite from their grinding daily existence. The government freely sells pork-laden labor contracts to off-world corporations who construct endless sweatshop factories that carpet the planet surface.
Role in LotJ
Balosar are self-centered and weak-willed. Millennia of brutal hardships have skewed their moral compass and they frequently wander across the line of the law. Balosar drift into crime because there is nothing else to do on their home world.
Balosar are the main dealer of death sticks in the galaxy. This has led them into a fierce competition with Twi'lek spice dealers for the galactic narcotics trade. The enmity that has developed between Balosar and Twi'lek has made cooperation between the two races almost impossible.
Balosar can speak Galactic Basic.
