The Echani were a sentient species that lived in the galaxy. They shared their name with a form of martial art. During the High Republic Era, when the Nihil attacked Valo, an Echani man who had come to attend the Valo Republic Fair had a run-in with Supreme Chancellor Lina Soh's pet targons, nearly being mauled before Jedi Master Stellan Gios held the large cats off so the man could flee.
