- Not to be confused with the similarly-named Yuzzum
The Yuzzem were a race of fur-covered humanoids native to the planet Ragna III. They were feline in stature, with long snouts and tremendous strength. They are tall aliens with a temperamental disposition. Their massive arms reach all the way to the ground, even when standing, and ended in huge hands. They were reported to have the strength and stamina of three men, and also suffered from long, intense hangovers when they get drunk. They were enslaved by the Empire and used in labor camps. Luke and Leia team up with two Yuzzem after escaping from Grammel's prison on Mimban.
