The Equani were a race known as much for its impressive size as for its empathetic skills. The Equani were distinguished by their large eyes and pale fur, and the color of the eye pigment always matched that of the fur. The Equani race was also known for its resistance to the Force. At the height of their civilization, there were nearly a billion Equani living in the galaxy, most of them on their homeworld of Nharl I. By the time of the Clone Wars, there were very few Equani left in the galaxy, after Equanus was razed by an intense solar flare. As a result, only the hundreds of Equani who were offworld survived the devastation. It was believed that the Equani had the capability to understand and psychoanalyze every other sentient race known in the galaxy.
