The Ereesusians were a race indigenous to the planet Ereesus in the Kanz Sector. Members of the species were heavily involved in slave trading and Ereesus was the site of a profitable slave trade. In 4,200 BBY, the Ereesusian species engaged in slave raids throughout the sector. Their harassment of the Argazdans prompted the latter to join the Galactic Republic that year. In 3,970 BBY, Argazdan Redoubt forces devastated Ereesus; exterminating all life including the Ereesusian slavers in retaliation for the latter’s depredations.
