Lannik are small humanoid beings, around 1.25 metres tall, and weigh between thirty and fourty five kilograms. Males and females are equally tall, although the latter have a considerably less strong complexity. Their race is, however, much more vigorous and resistent than what its size could suggest.
Lannik usually have pale skin, though some Lannik have skin which ranges from dark red to orange, and from dark blue to purple tones. A Lannik's skin tends to be of colours similar to his or her eyes and hair.
The race has evolved long pointy ears which are very sensible and allows them to hear better than human ears. Due to this, the Lannik language is spoken softly, and it is considered insulting to shout. Nowadays, Lanniks speak Basic too, but have the noisy habit to use a volume much more inferior that usual.
The Lannik culture is apparently war loving, and Lanniks feel a great respect for warroirs. At the same time, though, they follow a strict centuries-old code of honour. Lannik soldiers have the custom of tying all their hair in a single topknot over their head.
Their race is one of fierce warriors, whose abilities have developed fighting against terrible predators and other Lanniks in a long history of wars. Although many regard the Lannik as hotheaded and temperamental, they are quite fearless and clear-headed even in combat, giving them the ability to think their way out of a dangerous situation.
The Lannik do not show their thoughts through their facial expressions, and seem always angry to other races. They are also very stubborn, and are not likely to change career once they chose it. Most males - and many females - serve in the planetary militia, celebrating the species' past as a warrior race. Some take on off-world mercenary work.

Lannik is found along the border between the Mid Rim and the Expansion Region. It is a habitable planet with enormous untrespassed jungles and many unexploted natural resources. Among the native fauna the flejj beast is noted. Apart from this predator, Lannik has breeded other species, including sentient humanoid creatures called Lannik. The planet, and its sentient inhabitants, was discovered not too long ago by Duro colonists, which brought developed tecnology to the Lannik. The discussions between the Lannik authorities on what to trade in exchange for this technology opened the planet to pirates, and finally caused the Old Republic to restrict the amount of technology exported to the planet. This only made criminal groups stronger, and caused the planet to suffer several decades of turmoil when a group of terrorists known as the Red Iaro tried to overthrow the existing monarch and his government. The conflict ended decades ago, leaving the planet in a state of uneasiness and isolation for years, which continues until now.
