Biology and appearanceEdit
The Lepi were tall, lanky bipeds that were characterized by two long ears that stood upright, prominent buck teeth, and thin whiskers that grew near their mouths. They were covered in fur that could be green. Their upper limbs ended in hands with five digits, one of which was an opposing thumb, and their lower limbs ended in large feet.
Lepi in the galaxyEdit
One known Lepi was the racer Thrar, who represented Coachelle Prime in the 48th Annual Dragonfire Air Rally. Another was the smuggler Jaxxon, who worked at least once for the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War. Years earlier, during the waning days of the Galactic Republic, the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker once encountered a disgruntled Lepi on the Wheel who informed them on the whereabouts of Grynask Sanberge.
Behind the scenesEdit
