The Palarians were a race of near-humans that looked identical to the Vultans. They were native to the Outer Rim planet Palari. They were often recruited to work on the Corporate Sector world of Duroon. Once there, however, the promised jobs turned out to be a position of near-slavery, and the Palarians were forced to mine the planet's vast resources alongside other indentured species. The Palarians did not take this turn of events laying down, and started a guerrilla war against the Corporate Sector Authority.
