The Dugs have leathery, grey skin and small, beady eyes. They can easily walk on their hind legs, their forelegs, or all fours. They used their four hands to help them move through the trees of their homeworld of Malastare. Much of their language is punctuated with knuckle rapping and foot stomping. Dugs became the sworn enemies of the Gran when the latter established a settlement on Malastare. They fought viciously for many years before the Old Republic intervened. Unfortunately for the Dugs, the Republic ruled in favour of the Gran, and the Dugs were pushed to the fringes of Malastare's economy.
Dug society became insular, and they turned into self-congratulatory braggarts. Well-known for being a disreputable lot, and could often be found in dingy cantinas or dark alleys with all four arms into something illegal. However, with a casual glance at their culture on Malastare, you could be forgiven for thinking such stories were mere rumours. The arboreal Dugs lived in primitive villages in the trees, seemingly in touch with nature, though their culture was actually filled with violence.
