a humanoid race with deep familial traditions, the Askajians live on the desert world of Askaj. Their bodies have become extremely efficient at absorbing and storing water. An Askajian can survive for long periods in the open desert, returning in a thinned state. Upon consuming water, their bodies seem to inflate, hoarding the water for later use. The females have six breasts, which come in handy following the delivery of a litter of cubs. The cubs are not named until after their first birthday. Many Askajians raise tomuons for their milk, meat, and wool. The Askajians are known for their luxurious fabric, woven from tomuon wool. Weavers and dancers were revered in Askajian society. Weavers bring income to the Askajian people, as tomuon fabrics fetch a high price throughout the galaxy. Dancers were important to the religious and historical aspects of their society, maintaining the tribal histories and legends.
