The Cors were a race of small felines native to the jungles of the planet Gargolyn IV. They guarded their villages against invasion, and were aided in their defense by a huge creature that had been captured by an ancient Cor shaman. The beast once roamed the jungle and ravaged Cor settlements until the shaman bound the creature to the land itself. In reality, the Cor shaman was adept in the use of the light side of the Force, and future generations of Cor had enough sensitivity with the Force to keep the shaman's work vital. The beast was contained as long as the Cor didn't move from their villages, but when Karflo Corporation sought to move them out in order to build a new manufacturing plant, the beast was unleashed. It destroyed everything Karflo tried to do, until Karflo relented and allowed the Cors to return to their villages.
