Background: Nelvaanians were a sentient species native to the frozen Outer Rim world of Nelvaan. They practiced a perilous initiation ritual in which young males had to obtain a scale from the tail of a horax, giant blue-skinned reptiles with saber-sharp fangs and enormous horns, in order to join the ranks of their tribes’ greatest warriors. The scales would then be used to make an elixir capable of repelling horaxes for up to a year with its smell.
The Nelvaanians were a peaceful, low-tech race; however, during the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems-aligned Techno Union experimented on members of the species, turning them into cyborg monstrosities.
