The Echani were a race of near-humans native to the Inner Rim planet Eshan. They were known for its military prowess, which was evident across the galaxy during the years leading up to the Great Sith War. The Echani were noted as skilled warriors, and many of their techniques became the basis for the Echani style of martial arts. The Echani were distinguished by their use of armor and weaponry that incorporated cortosis ore, allowing them to be effective combatants against the Sith as well as the Jedi Knights.
The average Echani was distinguished by their alabaster skin, silver eyes, and white hair, and their tall bodies were often well-muscled from years of training.
