Lannik were short, bipedal humanoids known for their warrior-caste society.
Physiology and Culture
The Lannik were short humanoids with pink skin and droopy-ears. The Lannik were fearless and sometimes hotheaded and arrogant. Most often, Lannik kept clear heads in combat, and could deduce a solution to many dangerous situations. The Lannik were governed by the Lannik High Court.
The Lannik homeworld was first discovered by a group of human and Duros explorers, who brought high technology to Lannik. The natives' exposure to this technology split Lannik society into factions, each with its own thoughts on how to integrate that technology into their society. Conflicts raged on Lannik, forcing the intervention of several criminal groups, and finally, the Galactic Republic itself. The Republic restricted the amount of technology exported to the planet. However, this did not go as planned, serving only to increase the amount of technology on Lannik, and also entrenching crime syndicates. This led to the rise of the terrorist group known as the Red Iaro.
By the time of the Galactic Empire, the Lannik were all but forgotten and rarely seen in the galaxy.
Role in LotJ
Though hot-headed and tempermental, their fearless personas allow them to think clearly in even the most dangerous situations. Because they have few facial expressions, they come across as grim or angry. Lannik are known for their warrior code, simiar to the honor code of Mandalorians.
Lannik make excellent soldiers and scouts. Their limited exposure to the greater Galaxy has resulted in less Lannik in technical professions. However, a Lannik remains extremely loyal to whichever career they do choose.
