The Yarkora were bipedal, anthropomorphic beings resembling cameloids. They hailed from an unknown desert world in the Outer Rim, and were rarely seen amongst the galactic populace.
A bipedal mammalian species descended from hoofed ungulates, the Yarkora have evolved into a tall species with immense three-fingered hands, a long snout with wide nostrils, smooth fur, and rough tufts of hair. Speaking a native language and capable of learning and speaking Basic, the Yarkora possessed two stomachs, one for digesting and the other for storing food, and multiple redundant organs that accounted for their longevity. Because of this redundancy, it is rare that a Yarkora would die of natural causes and makes internal injury extremely treatable and non-life threatening.
Having incredible eyesight and hearing abilities, some scientists believe they are also able to project empathetic abilities onto others, possibly identifying the species as highly Force-sensitive. Children were born live, and a mother could only carry one child every fifteen years which caused the species to have relatively few in number.
A very secretive society, the Yarkora that have been spotted in the galaxy have remained tight-lipped as to the location of their planet of origin, and attempts to locate it proved fruitless. When Yarkora were seen, they tended to be rather off-setting and unnerving and found among criminal types. Without representation in the Galactic Republic, the Yarkora remained separate and did not participate in any large part in galactic events.
During the Galactic Civil War, groups of Yarkora helped the Rebel Alliance with counter-espionage, while a few served the Galactic Empire as couriers; others worked as scouts and t'bac farmers. Their presence in the galaxy at large had increased after the formation of the New Republic.
