The Toong were an anti-social species of big-headed aliens from the planet Toong'l. Toong'l was devastated by a collision with a comet shortly before 32 BBY, and the surviving Toong were forced to relocate to the neighboring planet of Tund.
Physiology and Culture
Toong spoke the language Toongese. The Toong had long gangly legs, no neck, and bulbous bodies. Their eyes were high on their pointed forehead, and their cheeks were jowled. Toong could store food in their cheeks, much like the rodents they were assumed to have evolved from.
When the Old Republic made first contact with the Toong in years unknown, the species was barely beginning the first steps to exploring their home system. A world war triggered, and this came as a shock to first contact specialists who had observed the species and documented them as being peace-loving and outgoing. It took weeks to reestablish contact with the Toong. It took the intervention of the Jedi and first contact specialists from Coruscant to stop the massive warfare that was threatening to doom the species.
After joining the Old Republic, the Toong took rapidly to advanced technology. Reluctantly leaving their own system, the Toong scattered colonies throughout the galaxy.
Role in LotJ
Toong exhibit severe nervousness and agoraphobia. Weak-willed and frightened of confrontation, Toong almost always gave in to an aggressor when threatened. Toong only truly felt safe when around immediate family. Toong however were not cowards; they simply dreaded interaction with other sentient creatures.
Toong make poor leaders and diplomats, though they excel at piloting. They are surprisingly competent fighters, particularly when cornered but are almost never soldiers voluntarily.
Toong can speak Galactic Basic.
