The Aramandi were a race of four-armed, four-eyed humanoids from the planet Aramand II. Because of living for generations in Aramand II's heavy gravity, their bodies were short and stout. Their skin coloration ranged from light red to light brown, and their eyes were solid black. As a people, the Aramandi were governed by the religious beliefs of the Eeronon, and divided themselves into four distinct castes or akia: the Orma, Cirra, Mila, and Lota. The Aramandi jealously controlled the Aramand Cluster, within Brak Sector, mainly because it was the area of their birth. As the Lant Mining Corporation exhausted its worlds, they began making overtures to the Aramandi, hoping to gain access to the Cluster. With the advent of the New Order, the Aramandi were also courted by the Empire, and given elaborate concessions to allow a simple garrison to be erected on Aramand II. In return, the Aramandi were basically left alone.
