Gamorreans were porcine humanoids from the planet Gamorr. They were extremely strong and generally considered less intelligent than the norm.
Physiology and Culture
Green skinned with pig-like snouts, their impressive strength made them among the Galaxy's best laborors and mercenaries. They also have impressive stamina, allowing them to withstand large assaults and physical trauma.
On Gamorr, Gamorreans existed in a sort of tribal political system dominated by the females, sows. The Gamorreans' entire year was centered around war with other tribes. Males would train in the spring, fight to the death all through the summer, and heal their wounds in the fall and winter, only to start again the next season. One of their favorite weapons was a giant ritualized axe, the arg'garok.
Gamorreans play four major roles in their clans. The first, the warlord, is the most powerful boar of a clan, married to the clan matrons. The greatest warlord of a clan acts as a general to all war affairs. Clan boars are the married boars, respected due to their wife's income. Household boars, or tuskers, are unmarried boars that are hired into a clan. Finally, veterans are retired Gamorreans -- usually sedentary due to some maiming injury or similar. Veterans typically act as advisors to warlords.
When Gamorr was discovered, the populace was enslaved. Those who escaped this fate quickly traveled offworld to sell their services to outsiders as guards and mercenaries.
Gamorr is also home to a parasitic species of bloodsuckers called morrts. Gamorreans have great affection for these creatures, finding them cute and cuddly. The number of morrts feeding on a Gamorrean is a symbol of status among males with a Clan warlord having 20 or more.
Role in LotJ
Gamorreans are brutish and proud. They respect physical prowess and will only work for someone who can best them in physical combat. They have a powerful sense of duty and fealty to their clan. Some leave Gamorr because they were enslaved and others buy out their contracts. Gamorreans are often at war, its simply a matter of finding out who the enemy is.
Despite their thuggish nature, a few Gamorreans have become civilized enough to operate within the Republic. Soldiers have risen as high as the rank of Sargeant but are hindered by their limited intelligence.
Gamorreans can understand Galactic Basic but cannot speak the language due to vocal cord limitations.
