- ―Bounty hunter Ro-San Borokki on gohai
Gohai were a non-sentient quadruped species that could be found throughout the Expansion Region. With a well-muscled body comparable in size to large predators like the gundark or nexu, they had a long, thick tail. Their faces had two eyes, a flat nose, pointed ears, and a single wide mouth filled with sharp pointed teeth. The jaw also had a distinctly triangular-shaped pair of mandibles with their narrowest point jutting toward the creature's anterior. Gohai had a narrow waist, digitigrade limbs and the robust torso came to a peak between the shoulder blades.
The Bounty Hunters Guild Handbook recommended that if they charged at a being, the target should drop to the ground. The bounty hunter Ro-San Borokki mentioned gohai when she wrote "The Hunt," a chapter of the Bounty Hunters' Guild Handbook.
Behind the scenes
The gohai were first seen in The Bounty Hunter Code: From the Files of Boba Fett, which was released in October 2013 and written by Daniel Wallace, Ryder Windham, and Jason Fry. The text briefly mentions it twice, and the creature is visually depicted.
