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.
