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.
