The Karrans are a race of large, fur-covered creatures evolved on the planet Karra. Their bodies are roughly cone-shaped, with their long snouts at the apex and their round hindquarters at the base. By the era of the New Order, they had developed the use of tools, but their long fingers and the lack of an opposable thumb limited their dexterity. The Karrans subsist on the various insect species on the planet, and have a primitive culture. They have recently developed a form of hive mind, and seem to be able to control certain species of insects. The primary evidence of this control was the destruction of two failed varmigio mines on Karra, which were destroyed by huge swarms of insects which were seemingly operating at the will of the Karrans.
