this race of heavy-set beings was distinguished by their pinkish skin, and had two pairs of eyes on their fleshy face. An Oblee also had three arms, the two on the left side and one on the right. The Oblee were rare in most parts of the galaxy, and unseen in the rest, after they were nearly wiped out by a Sith warrior using the Darkstaff more than 1,000 years before the Clone Wars. Those that were killed instantly were drained of any Force energy they might have had, and their bodies were discarded. Many who survived were maintained in a form of stasis, as a source of Force energy for the Darkstaff. A few others were "seeded" throughout the galaxy, for later use by the Darkstaff. When the Darkstaff was discovered to have been the artifact behind the disappearance of the Cularin System, its hold on the few surviving Oblee was broken, and they returned to the galaxy near Cularin. The skin color of an Oblee varied from individual to individual, but all Oblee tended to turn gray as they aged. It was Nirama who discovered the newly-returned Oblee, and learned that their original homeworld of Oblis had been destroyed by the power of the darkstaff. Its debris eventually formed the Cularin System's asteroid belt.
