Background: The Yam’rii, also known as the Huk, were an insectoid sentient species from the Wild Space planet Huk, that were characterized by a triangular-shaped head poised on a long neck, large forward-facing eyes, and prominent upper limbs that were bent and held together at an angle.

The ravaging Yam’rii brutally overran numerous worlds in their sector, plundering their resources and enslaving their populations. When their interest was the planet Kalee, the results were horrifying; they conquered the Kaleesh.

The merciless struggle between the Yam’rii and the Kaleesh devolved into an ongoing war, and in time, the Kaleesh warlord, Qymaen jai Sheelal, later known as Grievous, led his forces. The Yam’rii were pushed back from their enemies’ homes and onto their world. The Kaleesh invaded their world, and eventually, the insect unexpectedly sought the Galactic Republic for assistance. Then, the Republic and the Jedi Order intervened in the disastrous conflict, supporting the Yam’rii against the invader. The Kaleesh were condemned, embargoes and fines were imposed, and hundreds of thousands of them died of starvation, causing Grievous to pursue personal vengeance against them.

Sylar Saris was a Yam’rii bounty hunter active around 18 BBY. He was known as “The Slayer of Ordo Eris” and had become highly wanted after performing several bounties on behalf of the Haxion Brood crime syndicate. Fellow bounty hunter Fennec Shand eventually claimed the bounty on Saris. One Yam’rii was present in Chalmun’s cantina in Mos Eisley, Tatooine, on the day Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi met Han Solo and Chewbacca.
