Iskalonian was the general term for the different aquatic sentient species who lived in the oceans of the planet Iskalon. All seventeen of these species were relocated from their own homeworlds to Iskalon circa 5000 BBY.
Biology and appearance
Among the other species represented in the School was that of a female Iskalonian named Dania Francis. Dania Francis's species had a humanoid torso, a horse-like face, a fish-like lower body featuring a finless tail carried curled forward, wing-like fins attached to her shoulders, and additional fins running the length of her lower body. Francis also had purple skin, white hair, and white eyes.
Another Iskalonian of unidentified species had a fish-like appearance (distinct from that of a Frid), green skin, large white eyes with thick eyelids, and a fin on his or her head which formed a spiny crest. This Iskalonian had a face resembling a dog's muzzle.
Around five hundred years before the Battle of Naboo, a number of needy Iskalonian locals were approached by recruiters sent by Hugo Bartyn. Bartyn wanted amphibian fishermen to settle a new city in Lamaredd and tempted these poverty-stricken individuals with promises of untouched seas in a new frontier. Once they arrived, however, they became slave laborers. Most of the Iskalonians refused, and they were banished to an almost-sure death in the open seas.
Though they built the underwater city of Pavillion to interact with water-breathing visitors to Iskalon, it was destroyed in 3 ABY after an Imperial attack set off an enormous tidal wave. Afterwards, the Iskalonians withdrew from the galaxy's affairs. Kiro was an exception to this, as he briefly left his homeworld for several adventures alongside Luke Skywalker.
