The Anomid were a race of mammalian humanoids native to the Outer Rim planet Yablari. The Anomid were born without vocal cords. This requires that the immature Anomid wear complex masks which synthesize the sounds necessary for communication with others. These masks were very large, covering all but the Anomid's eyes and forehead. Most Anomids have pale, translucent skin and wide eyes, and their ears were large and leaf-like in shape. Anomids have six toes on each foot. Their technology was fairly sophisticated, and the Anomid have become very wealthy selling it in the galaxy. A peaceful race, they supported the Old Republic for 15,000 years before the onset of the New Order. Their own political system was divided in its support during the Galactic Civil War, but they sided with the Empire in an effort to meet their homeworlds' needs.
