Description: Ithorians were a species of intelligent herbivores from the planet Ithor. They were commonly called "Hammerheads" because of their long, curving neck and T-shaped head. They find this nickname offensive.
Ithorians had two mouths and glossy, brown flesh. In general, they 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 were natives of the planet Ithor, a lush world with sprawling rain forests. The Ithorians worshipped Mother Jungle, and long ago vowed never to desecrate their planet. Once they discovered repulsorlift technology, the Ithorians built expansive "herdships" floating in the skies above their homeworld. The species migrated to these platforms, ensuring that Ithor would remain pristine forever. These herdships eventually were given the ability to travel across interstellar distances.
Abroad, Ithorians integrated well with the galactic community. Their own language was incredibly beautiful, yet difficult to learn, as the Ithorians had twin mouths on opposite sides of their necks. Fortunately, they could speak Basic, albeit with a strange accent. Each Ithorian herd was presided over by a Force-sensitive individual who served as both a priest and healer.
