Biology and appearanceEdit
Peaceful by nature, they are distinguishable by two distinctly different varieties. Some Riorians, such as Loje Nella, have two large, ridged flaps of skin that extend from either side of the head. They also have tufts of green hair on their scalps. A second variety has gills and a large cranial sac. They have eyes with red scleras with black pupils. With their non-protruding mouths closed, they have the appearance of not having one. They also have non-protruding noses.
At some time in their ancient past, Riorians descended from the cliffborer worms of Tatooine. One of the haired Riorian variety, Loje Nella, came under the employ of Jabba the Hutt as his accountant.
