The Baragwin people were a species of bipedal reptilians. Though their population numbered only in the millions, they were widespread throughout the galaxy, having been part of galactic society for millennia. Their original home world was lost to legend. Instead, like Humans, they identified themselves with the planet they were raised on.
Physiology and Culture
Physically, Baragwins were noted for their thick skin which could resist most physical attacks, and their shuffling gait. This made them powerful, but slow, warriors. They were easily recognized by their hunched backs, wrinkled skin, and large heads mounted on thick necks. Baragwins also had an acute sense of smell, sensitive enough to detect a person's mood. This led some of them into careers as big-game hunters, or even as bounty hunters.
Baragwins generally had little prejudice, treating all other beings equally regardless of species, culture, or planetary origins (though criminal Baragwins would exploit all beings equally instead). Baragwin settlements were generally small and anarchic, with short-term leaders selected by informal democratic processes.
Baragwins were also famous as skilled weaponsmiths. During the Jedi Civil War, Baragwin-made blasters and vibroblades were among the most powerful personal weapons in the galaxy. This tradition continued into the Galactic Civil War era, where Baragwins were found working for Imperial-backed corporations, criminals, and the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
Role in LotJ
Baragwin tend to be underestimated because of their ponderous bulk and slow gait. They are actually enormously intelligent and will actively manipulate any species prejudice against them. They are quick to defend themselves if attacked and usually do so quite capably.
Baragwin are the galaxy’s greatest weapon smiths though they are quite able in any technical career. They are also one of the few engineering oriented species that also often followed careers in the military.
Baragwin can speak Galactic Basic.
