this people was one of the two major factions which inhabited the planet of Melida/Daan. Throughout the history of their planet, the Melida had seen the Daan as feral beasts, and used a legacy of perceived wrong-doings to continue their civil war. The older members of both societies fought to avenge losses sustained centuries before, using their children as laborers in munitions factories while they killed each other in battle. They had been involved in a war with the Melida for thirty years before Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn traveled to their planet to rescue Tahl.
