This is a race of near-humans, noted for the retractable antenepalps atop their heads. Native to a planet known as Balosar, they are generally regarded as shifty cheaters and scoundrels by other races. This is most likely derived from the fact that they produce and sell death sticks, addictive and eventually fatal drugs distilled from balo mushrooms. The drug's main black market competitor is the Ryloth drug ryll. As a people, the Balosar seems to be content to allow their homeworld to be overrun by offworld corporations and criminal syndicates, taking bribes and other payments in return for land grants or other rights. The lowest classes of Balosar are paid poorly for their work in sweatshops and factories.
