The Herglics, alternatively known as Koodans, were a species native to the planet Giju. They were water-based mammals and developed hyperdrive and a trade-based empire in the Colonies Region before encountering the Duros. Herglics were pleasant and peaceful, but they had an addiction to gambling and games of chance. Herglics were a very large species and were sensitive about their size.
Herglics were large bipeds that appeared to have evolved from water-dwelling mammals. Most of the evidence of their water borne ancestry had been bred out so that, for example, fins and flukes were replaced with arms and legs. They did, however, still breathe through a blowhole on the top of their heads. The hauum sound of a Herglic clearing their blowhole was a common Herglese word throughout the Tapani sector where it was used with emphasis to preface a significant remark.
They were tall, extremely wide, and had smooth, hairless skin that ranged in color from pale blue to black although some, like Hamar-Chaktak, had pale pink skin. A few Herglics, such as the entrepreneur and gambler Narloch, displayed white stripes down the sides of their head and arms.
Herglics were generally quite sensitive about their large size. Since most other sentient species in the galaxy were smaller than they were and most facilities were designed to accommodate Human dimensions, Herglics tended to feel somewhat self-conscious and out of place when removed from their community or their ships. Their bulky size meant that typically a Herglic would take up two seats in a restaurant and the majority of doorways required some maneuvering. Despite this they were typically easygoing in nature and enjoyed meeting new people and visiting exotic locations.
