The Chikarri were a race of man-sized, squirrel-like creatures native to the planet Plagen. They were highly-intelligent, and were known to be extremely thrift. Jokes up and down the Enarc Run said that a Chikarri's wealth was described by the age and patching of their clothing. Chikarri were also known to be kleptomaniacs, and not very brave. It was the Chikarri who sold port rights to Plagen to the Klatooinan Trade Guild, bringing a galaxy's worth of trade to their world.
