These humanoids were bipedal herbivores who possessed fine thick white fur as well as large green-blue eyes. The tallest of their kind were scarcely waist-high to a Human. The soles of their feet were thick, calloused pads. The species were adept at the disciplines of bioengineering and genetics, creating many animals including the Asgnat and Grebnar.
The selling of Lurrian slaves was noted to had been worth between four to six thousand a piece on the Invisible Market.
The Lurrians were noted to had developed the art of bioengineering entirely on their own and had bred numerous genetically engineered organisms on their world. Despite their talent, they preferred to remain on their homeworld and many did not take part in contracts for genetic research with outsiders. After the Clone Wars had ended, they were one of a number of species that were enslaved by the Galactic Empire. Once this was done, the Empire placed a number of rigid restrictions on cloning and genetic research though not everyone was happy with these imposed laws.
The employers of Zlarb and Magg both desired to make use of the Lurrians talents though the species refused to take part in any contract of employment. This led to the two slavers in abducting fifty Lurrians in order to sell them offworld and had hired Han Solo early in his smuggling career. The Corellian was, however, completely unaware of the transportation of slaves and after discovering this; he freed the enslaved Lurrians from the slave traders.
