Trandoshans
Trandoshans are large, reptilian humanoids from the planet Trandosha (or Dosha). They have supersensitive eyes that can see into the infrared range and the ability to regenerate lost limbs when they are young. They also shed their skin. Trandoshans are a warlike species who allied early with the Empire, taking Wookies as slaves. They value hunting above all else and worship a female deity known as the Scorekeeper, who awards jagannath points to Trandoshans based on their success or failure in the hunt. They have a difficult time manipulating delicate objects with their relatively clumsy clawed hands. The bounty hunter Bossk, and his father Cradossk (one-time head of the Bounty Hunters Guild) were both Trandoshans.

Special Abilities:
Vision:

Trandoshans' vision includes the ability to see in the infrared spectrum. They can see in darkness with no penalty, provided there are heat sources.

Clumsy:
Trandoshans have poor manual dexterity. They have considerable difficulty performing actions that require precise finger movement and they suffer a penalty of -2D whenever they attempt an action of this kind. In addition, they also have some difficulty using weaponry that requires a substantially smaller finger such as blasters and blaster rifles; most weapons used by Trandoshans have had their finger guards removed or redesigned to allow for the Trandoshans use.

Regeneration:
Younger Trandoshans can regenerate lost limbs (fingers, arms, legs, and feet). This ability disappears as the Trandoshan ages. Once per day, the Trandoshan must make a Moderate Strength or stamina roll. Success means that the limb regenerates by ten percent. Failure indicates that the regeneration does not occur.

Story Factors:
Wookie Hate:

The long-standing feud between the Wookies of Kashyyyk and the Trandoshans is deeply ingrained in both species. When encountering Wookies or known Wookie associates, Trandoshans must make a Moderate willpower check to keep from attacking.

Hostility:
The Trandoshans are known as a belligerent species. They gain +1D to all intimidation rolls against non-Trandoshans.
