The Gobindi were an alien race native to the planet Gobindi, though they were extinct long before the Battle of Yavin. The Gobindi were master architects, and built huge ziggurats in the deep jungles of the planet. While many of the stepped pyramids had rooms and passageways, several were completely solid. It was these ziggurats which were built to contain the deadly viruses the Gobindi discovered in the jungles. They were wiped out by one such virus, known as the Gobindi virus, but not before they discovered a way to cure it. In their dying actions, they carved the formula for the antidote into the ziggurat's walls.
