The Laboi were a mammalian race native to the planet Laboi II. They were furred snakelike creatures which survive the planet's intense weather. They live in packs which roam the planet in search of Ovolyans, all the time making sure that they don't fall prey to the ovolyans themselves. The largest male was considered the pack leader, although true leadership comes from age. The laboi have cultivated unique, carefully-tended gardens of crystals, and they seem to have a limited form of telekinesis which allows them - especially the older females - to agitate the molten rock and crystal to form beautiful, subtly colored crystals. These crystals were highly desired on many Core Worlds.
