Raiths were giant, black-furred rodents indigenous to the moon Yavin VIII. They had a pair of sharp teeth on the top and bottom of their head in a manner very similar to Earth-based rodents, and they are capable of biting with impressive force. THeir skin is green and can be seen along their bare tails, which are protected instead by armoring. They predate upon Melodies, and are in turn preyed upon by Avrils.
Notably, a number of these creatures were encountered by Jedi trainees Anakin Solo, Tahiri Veila and Lyric on their trip to Yavin VIII.
