The Hapans were a race of near-humans native to the planet Hapes. They differ from normal humans in two ways. First, they were considered quite handsome and beautiful as a race. Second, they were unable to see well in the dark because of the fact that the planet Hapes was continually bathed in light, either from its sun or from the seven moons that orbit the planet. As a people, Hapans had a deep-seated hatred of the Jedi, which sprang from the destruction of the Lorell Raiders. When the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, the Hapans were among the first beings to support the work of the Peace Brigade, as their anti-Jedi sentiments came to the fore.
