Ithorians were a species of intelligent herbivores from the planet Ithor, a lush world with sprawling rain forests. They were commonly called "Hammerheads" because of their long, curving neck and T-shaped head though they find this nickname offensive.
Physiology and Culture
Ithorians had two mouths and glossy, brown flesh. They are somewhat larger and more muscular than Humans. Their long necks curved forward and end in dome-shaped heads.
Ithorians were devoted environmentalists, staunch herbivores, and complete pacifists. Many became galactic traders who peacefully travelled the stars in giant herd ships. They would only resort to violence if threatened. Because of their mild demeanor, most Ithorians avoided the Galactic Civil War, although a few joined the Rebel Alliance.
Ithorians integrated well with the galactic community, traveling the Galaxy in giant Herdships. Each Ithorian herd was presided over by a Force-sensitive Herdmaster who served as both a priest and healer.
Ithorian Jedi could also create devastating shock waves with their four throats. They blew out air with extreme power, enough to destroy walls and shatter iron. This technique was used twice by Jedi Master Roron Corobb, to stop General Grievous abducting Chancellor Palpatine.
Role in LotJ
Ithorians are calm, peaceful and tranquil. While very capable of combat, they rarely strike out in anger. They are the greatest botanist and ecologists in the Galaxy, helping rehabilitate countless planets devastated from war.
Ithorians concentrate on peaceful professions. They are extremely social, enjoying contact with many new species. They love exploring which sometimes leads to an unfortunate path toward seamier professions.
Ithorian can speak Galactic Basic though with a strange, musical accent.
