|The Demarans are a race of humanoid creatures that have hard, chitinous exoskeletons that soften at the joints (to permit movement) and on the palms of the hands and feet (to enhance sensitivity). The Demaran head has deep-set eyes, slightly flanged ear holes and a toothless mouth with deeply serrated lips and a short, stubby tongue.
The Demarans were discovered only two years after Thrawn's campaign against the New Republic. Their homeworld, Demara, lies in the Outer Rim near the Elrood Sector. They were discovered when a New Republic ship needing repairs mistakenly dropped out of hyperspace in their star system and landed on their world seeking assistance. With the assistance of the Demarans, the ship was repaired but not before the natives quickly learned about the hyperdrive systems.
Until this time, the Demarans believed that they were the only intelligent life in the galaxy. Now that they have begun to interact with the galaxy at large, they believe themselves to be the only true intelligence in existence. Their society has adopted a new philosophy to begin "converting" the other races from being "animals" into fellow Demarans.
