"It's the Ishi Tib!"
―An Imperial officer, to Davin Bryce[7]

Ishi Tib were a species of sentient, humanoid amphibians from the planet Tibrin. They had green skin, large eyes that extended from angular stalks on either side of their skull, and a beak-like mouth. Some were seen working for Jabba the Hutt, while others fought for the Alliance to Restore the Republic.

Biology and appearance[]

Two Ishi Tib on Tibrin

Ishi Tib were sentient humanoid amphibians[1] hailing from the planet Tibrin.[4] They were distinguished by their green skin, the two large gold eyes extending from angular stalks on either side of their skull, and their beak-like mouths.[1] Among the Ishi Tib, opening ones beak without a sound was the equivalent of a human frown.[8] They had a very acute sense of smell, and were able to use it on land and underwater,[9] although the species was most comfortable underwater.[5]
