Bothans were furry humanoids hailing from Bothawui and several colonies, The Bothans were members of the Old Republic at least from 4,000 BBY, but likely from a significantly earlier point. Though in numerous conflicts the Bothans remained officially neutral, their famed Spynet always played each side and commercial interests sought profits. The Bothans played a large role in the founding of the New Republic.

Physiology and Culture

Bothans stand about 1.5 meters tall and are covered with fur that ripples according to their emotional state. They have tapered pointed ears and typically sport beards. Bothans differ in facial structure from canine to feline to equine.

Bothan culture was guided by the philosophy and principles set forth in the ancient text The Way by Golm Fervsedra. In this "Bothan Way", the pursuit of power and influence was paramount. Thus, individual Bothans put their own political and economic success above all other concerns, and as a species, Bothans put their own advancement ahead of other intergalactic interests. The volume of backstabbing, subtle character assassination and political maneuvering in Bothan society was dizzying.

In times of crisis, the focus of Bothan society shifted to a survivalist state known as "Arkai". When engaged in Arkai, all fit Bothans volunteered to defend their species from impending annihilation. The last calling of Arkai was during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion after the death of Borsk Feylya and the practical defeat of the New Republic.

Role in LotJ

Bothans are manipulative, crafty and suspicious. However, some have interpreted these qualities to mean that Bothans were untrustworthy when in fact they were extremely loyal and brave.

Bothans engage in daring deeds, acting as spies, soldiers, pilots and ambassadors, often at the same time.

Bothans can speak Galactic Basic.
