Definition Of:

Gand

Movies DictionaryStar Wars Dictionary
Gand is a primarily gaseous planet and home to the alien species also called Gand. Gand society is composed of pocket colonies separated by enshrouding mists, and the Gand government is a totalitarian monarchy established centuries ago. Locating fugitives in the thick gasses is the responsibility of Gand "findsmen," who worship the mists and use religious rituals to lead them to their targets. Names are a reflection of status on Gand-- those Gand who have achieved little are simply called "Gand." As an individual accomplishes more, he or she earns a surname, then a first name. Only those Gand whose fame is so great that they are known by all are allowed to refer to themselves with pronouns. All other Gand always refer to themselves in the third person, using their "lesser" names when they feel contrite or ashamed. Due to the world's unique atmosphere, most Gand must wear some type of breathing apparatus when off-planet. After Gand and its slave trade were taken over by the Empire, the Imperials' advanced technology made the arcane techniques of the findsmen largely obsolete. Some Gand findsmen have since found work as bounty hunters, including the notorious Zuckuss, though others such as Rogue Squadron pilot Ooryl Qrygg have chosen nobler professions. [MTS, XWRS]
