The Drall were a species with eyes that were especially vulnerable to light. The non-lethal weapon known as the flashstick was particularly effective against Drall and was used almost exclusively by the Drall constabulary, with most users wearing polarized goggles to prevent the weapon blinding them as well as the target.
Behind the scenes
In the new Star Wars canon the Drall were first mentioned in the 2019 Fantasy Flight Games roleplaying supplement Gadgets and Gear. The species originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where it was first mentioned in the 1980 novel Han Solo and the Lost Legacy, which was written by Brian Daley.
