The Kon'me are a race of thick-bodied reptiloids native to the planet Bal'demnic. During the height of the Clone Wars, the Kon'me found themselves initially subjugated by the Separatists, who wanted to mine the planet's islands for cortosis ore. The Kon'me fought back, until they discovered that the Old Republic had dispatched a group of Jedi Knights and clone troopers to oust the Separatists. The Kon'me decided that they wanted no help in defending their homeworld, and opened fire on both sides of the conflict. They eventually repelled both the Separatists and the Grand Army of the Republic, although the Republic left a token protective force in orbit around Bal'demnic.
