The Noolans were a sentient mammalian species native to the Outer Rim planet Noola in the Noola system. Their homeworld became part of the Relgim sector, an area of space explored between 3,000–25 BBY.
During the Galactic Civil War, the Noolan Otolia Ratiuv, a technician, found her body occupied by the essence of Nana, a Rebel-affiliated member of the Homanan species, following an explosion near a Jedi Force crystal. Nana gained telepathy from the transfer and continued serving in the Alliance to Restore the Republic in her new body. Throughout the Galactic Civil War, the territory surrounding the Noola system remained under Imperial control until 17 ABY, and, following spells under the administration of the New Republic and the Yuuzhan Vong Empire, it returned to Imperial control by 40 ABY.
Biology and appearanceEdit
The Noolans were humanoid in stature, They have reddish-orange skin and flowing red hair. Their bulbous, black eyes rarely ever blink.
The Noolans evolved on the planet Noola, in the Noola system. Their home system was part of the sparsely-populated Relgim sector, an area of the Outer Rim Territories that was explored between 3,000–25 BBY. During the Clone Wars, the territory around their home system was part of Separatist space. Following the conclusion of this war, the Noola system remained in Imperial territory until 17 ABY. It was reincorporated into Imperial territory in 40 ABY, following periods of control by the New Republic and the Yuuzhan Vong Empire. By 137 ABY, the Noola system had became part of a large portion of the New Territories that supported Roan Fel, the deposed former Emperor who had been betrayed at the conclusion of the Sith–Imperial War by his Sith allies.
Noolans in the galaxyEdit
During the Galactic Civil War, Otolia Ratiuv, a female Noolan technician, was near an explosion that killed the body of a nearby Homanan. Due to the coincidental proximity of a Jedi Force crystal, the Homanan, Nana, was able to transfer her essence into Ratiuv. During this process Nana lost the shape-shifting ability of the Homanans, but she instead developed telepathy. In her new Noolan body, Nana continued agitating for a change in galactic governance through the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
