Star Wars: Unseen Forces
The dominant species in the Canicide System are the Izqathi. Cruel by most species' standards they are cold and calculating and run the mining operations in the system with little room for error. They prefer not to speak galactic basic, keeping to their own language which makes use of their unusual twin tongues to generate sounds difficult for those species without that feature to make. They see basic as far too simple to convey ideas properly and as a result tend to make a heavy use of protocol droids when dealing with outsiders.
While not militarily inclined per se, they do keep their bases fairly well secured, and their mining droids and vessels are quite capable of defending themselves and their owners.
The Izqathi operations within the Canicide System are extensive mining operations both on planets and in asteroids. The system is unusually rich in Trimantium, a metal sought after for the construction of starships and weapons. Outside of these deposits and the bases around them they extend no authority or ownership over the otherwise desolate landscapes of the planets.
