Background: The Noghri were a sentient species native to Honoghr. They had gray skin, a row of horns on their head, and ran on all fours. Noghri were known for their combat skills and keen sense of smell.

The Noghri were humanoid, with a torso, a single head, arms, and legs. Entirely hairless and wiry, they had gray skin and short horns atop their heads. Their hands and feet each possessed four long digits. Although they stood upright, walking with a simian gait, the Noghri ran on all fours and could leap great heights and jump long distances. They were also gifted with a keen sense of smell.

One Noghri was present on Wecacoe when Captain Cassian Andor traveled to extract Imperial security protocols. Because of their strong sense of smell and advanced combat skills, Noghri were often employed as trackers and assassins. Rukh was a male Noghri assassin who often worked for Imperial Grand Admiral Thrawn.
