this alien race, native to the planet Galantos, called the Koornacht Cluster "The Multitude." They were a small, placid race whose communication included wild hand and arm gestures. After the Yuuzhan Vong captured Coruscant, the Fia began negotiating with the alien invaders, hoping to survive the invasion. They provided information on the strengths of the Yevetha, in return for resources and the Yuuzhan Vong's assurance that the Yevetha would be destroyed. The Fia also allowed the communications network to the Republic to be shut down, mainly to avoid reprials from the Republic itself. Little did the Fia know that the Yuuzhan Vong had no plans to spare either the Yevetha or the Fia. Only the timely intervention of Leia Organa Solo and her husband, Han Solo, on a mission to restore communications with Galantos, helped the Fia avoid the fate of the Yevetha.
