The Iktotchi are hairless beings with an incredibly resilient skin which protects them from the violent winds of Iktotch. Both males and females have curved horns, although the males' horns are generally a little larger. Average male height measures 1.80 meters with females measuring slightly less. The Iktotchi people use Iktotchese to communicate between themselves, but easily adapt to use Basic for commerce with the galaxy.
Iktotchi have native precognition which, while vivid and specific on their homeworld, becomes vague and more like "gut instinct" as they move away from the planet. In spite of their rather unfriendly appearance, Iktotchi are sensitive beings who mask their deeper emotions under an appearance of stoicism. Respectful of the other cultures, they can adapt to civilization, but bond only rarely with other species, and with great difficulty. Indeed, their gift of precognition generally frightens or antagonizes members of other species. Compounding the negative image is a history of using their gift for criminal endeavors, either through deceit or of their own volition.
