one of the two sentient races native to the planet Tahlboor, the Hobors were humanoid in stature. They had brownish-blue skin, unlike the Troobs, which tended toward deep blue skin. Both races are characterized by their wide faces, which are flanked by a several rings of spade-shaped flaps. Five sets of these flaps ring the upper part of the head, and hair is interspersed among the flaps. The flaps stand upright, away from the head. The rest of their faces are cat-like, with a long, flat nose and toothy mouths. Like their cousins the Troobs, most Hobors has a thick mane of hair covering the backs of their heads. Most of the Hobors are heavyset in build. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, the Troobs and Hobors appealed to Tion Hegemony to assist in reconciling a generations-old feud between them. Counselor Harthan was called in, but was manipulated out of position by his son, Jake, who hoped to get the two races to destroy each other so he could control Mount Yeroc. Eventually, with the help of R2-D2 and C-3PO, Jake's plans were thwarted and peace was restored.
