a humanoid alien race which evolved into five distinct branches on the planet Kintan. They were an ancient species, being one of the three races signed into servitude to the Hutts during the battle against Xim the Despot. The Nikto were characterized by their leathery skin, reptilian eyes, and fierce temperments. The skin of a Nikto was made up up thousands of overlapping scales, which could be shifted to cover wounds to protect them from infection. All five races are genetically capable of interbreeding; 93% of the offspring from such unions resemble only one of the parents. There were a number of environmental and geological changes that greatly affected life on Kintan, causing the once-singular Nikto race to evolve its five unique races. Chief among these changes was the radiation expelled by the nearby star M'dweshuu. The Red Nikto, called Kajain'sa'Nikto, evolved in the deserts. They have ridged foreheads, eight small horns around the eyes, and two at the chin. They breath through a permeable membrane over their mouths and through four breather tubes on their necks. The Green Nikto, known as Kadas'sa'Nikto, evolved in the forests. They are visibly scaled, with obvious noses and small horns ringing their eyes. The Mountain Nikto are called Esral'sa'Nikto, and have smooth skin. Their ears are large and fin-shaped, designed to be extended or pulled flat to regulate body heat and enhance hearing. They also have a nasal membrane similar to the Red Nikto. The Pale Nikto, called Gluss'sa'Nikto, are found in the islands of the planet. They resemble the Green Nikto, with fin-like ears. The last race, called M'shento'su'Nikto or Southern Nikto, lack any horns but have a number of breather tubes at various points on their skulls. Their inner strength and fierce nature has been honed over millennia of survival against the predators of Kintan. This led to four intense civil wars which nearly destroyed Kintan some 30 years before the Nikto helped the Hutts defeat Xim. The Hutts then distributed the Nikto to various worlds as bodyguards and strongmen. The Nikto developed atomic-level technology on their own, and absorbed galactic technology from the Hutts. They have remained under Hutt control for over 25,000 years, for the most part remaining neutral throughout the various battles between the Empire and the Alliance. Because of this, many Nikto individuals who were sensitive to the Force remained undiscovered by the Jedi Knights, although a few Nikto escaped slavery to become Jedi.
