The Hamadryas were a near-human species[1] with green skin and slightly ape-like faces.[3] They seemed to not possess the need to blink, and the species lacked a true carotid artery.[4]

The holoperformer Cebann Veekan was a notable member of this species.[3] Senator Haydel Goravvus of Taris was a Human/Hamadryas hybrid.[1]

Behind the scenes

The name of this species was created by Bob Vitas as part of the What's the Story campaign on StarWars.com.[3]

The species was named after the Hamadryas baboon;[5] in turn, the name derives from Hamadryads, tree nymphs (a subcategory of dryads) from the Greek mythology.

As revealed in his Star Wars Blog, Bob Vitas intended that the Hamadryas species to be from a planet called "Papio".[5]
