this was one of the most successful criminal organizations found on Ralltiir, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. The Kalmec was founded by a group of dishomed Wookiees, who shaved the hair off their shoulders in an effort to prove to other beings that Wookiees had actual skin beneath their fur. In other words, Wookiees were not that different from other races. However, there was a darker side to The Kalmec. Below their social activism, the Kalmec were providing an information gathering system for many powerful organizations. It was rumored that The Kalmec was in league with the Separatists, using their informations to sow counter-intelligence that bred dissent on many planets. These rumors were based in fact, since shaven-shouldered Wookiees often appeared on planets where secessionist movements gathered large support.
