- "A small gift from Count Dooku. A delicacy. Take heart: the Yanthans who remove the venom sacs rarely make a mistake. And even if they do—it is said to be a good death."
- ―Asajj Ventress
The Yanthans were beings from the Yantha system who excised venom-sacs from windsnakes, creatures native to the planet of Ploo II. The Yanthans were experts at this task and rarely erred, although doing so resulted in what they termed dying well. In 21 BBY, Separatist Commander Asajj Ventress presented the X'Ting criminal Trillot with two windsnakes that had had their venom-sacs removed by Yanthans.

Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Yantha appears to be one such case. "I wouldn't get your hopes up re alien homeworlds, beyond simple stuff like the Planetnamian species getting a Planetnamia on the map or things Dan and I can account for with a relatively quick reference."
