    A species of sentient life that has developed in the gases of the
planet Gand.  Two distinct subspecies of Gand are known to exist. One
subspecies evolved without  lungs, while the other retained their lungs.
Those Gand with lungs were able to  survive in the various gases of their
homeworld, but required special breathing  apparatus in order to survive
in oxygen-based atmospheres. The lungs of the Gand  are quite efficient,
able to utilize nearly 85 percent of the atmosphere they  breathe in with
each breath. It was later discovered that those Gands with lungs  could
not regenerate body parts like those of the other subspecies. It was
discovered,   after the Galactic Civil War, that the other subspecies of
Gand had regenerative  properties. These Gand are also lungless, and could
go for long periods of time  in toxic environments. The Gand have
developed a totalitarian monarchy, and various colonies of Gand live in
pockets of mist in the gas giant's atmosphere.  When renegade Gand are
sought, findsmen are sent out to locate them. When the  Empire overran the
planet, the findsmen were presented with advanced technology  with which
to hunt their targets. The better findsmen became bounty hunters. The
Gand hold their names in great reverence. A Gand who has accomplished
nothing in  his life is simply known as "Gand." When a Gand completes a
task, they are given  their family's surname. A further accomplishment
provides the Gand with a proper  name. Pronouns are almost never used, and
are reserved for those famous Gand who  have accomplished so much that
their deeds are known by all. If a Gand does s omething to be ashamed of,
or causes offense to another Gand, their name is reduced.
