Sullustans were a species of small humanoids from Sullust. Sullustans, also known as Bomewrights, were common sights for spacers. The Sullustans played an important role in the Galactic Civil War and were charter members of the New Republic.
Physiology and Culture
Diminutive, Sullustans ranged from 1 to 1.5 meters in height and bore round, tapered skulls. Sullustans were distinguishable for their almond-shaped black eyes, facial jowls, called dewflaps and large, round ears.. Mentally, Sullustans possessed exceptional intuition, with many able to navigate a path after seeing a map only once. This ability extended to sublight and hyperspace navigation, as well as patrol work, so much so that Sullustans that joined the Rebel Alliance were put to use foiling Imperial covert operations.
Sullustans organized themselves into familial units known as Warren-clans. Each clan consisted of one polygamous female, several husbands and their young. Unmated females, known as "Fems", were active members of their communities until they reached the status of "Ready" which marked their breeding years. At the outset of Ready, "Fems" chose their mates and founded their own Warren-clans.
Burial rites were given particular focus in Sullustan culture, with vast crypts and vaults maintained by crypt masters. Death, known as "Eternal Sleep", was viewed with great reverence. The most important of these rites as the Tomb-walling Ceremony, an elaborate funeral procedure. from across the galaxy.

Sullustans tend to be pragmatic, pleasant and fond of practical jokes.
Few Sullustans left their homeworld, but those that did often found employment as pilots, merchants or ships engineers. Sullustan spacers put their skills as navigators to use and were prized crewers across the galaxy.
Sullustans can speak Galactic Basic. Their native language is so well known among smugglers and pilots that speaking basic is often unnecessary.
