The Aquar were a race of near-humans evolved on the planet Velusia. Descended from the original human explorers who found the planet millennia before the Battle of Yavin, the Aquar evolved to become more adapted to their aquatic environment. The skin of an Aquar was made up of millions of tiny scales, with colorations ranging from blue to green. The fingers and toes of an Aquar were webbed, and the hair of an Aquar was usually green. The nose of an Aquar was flattened, and instead of two nostrils there were three horizontal slits. An Aquar could breathe underwater just as well as on land, giving them the ability to exist in either realm.
