Gholam are a diabolical creation, created by the same dark masters who created Myrddraal, Trollocs, Grey Men, and the like.
Gholam were created for one purpose, and one purpose only, to kill jedi. They were created by the unknown dark masters as
perfect assasins for use against the jedi, not to replace the Grey Men. It is believed that not many Gholam were created
because of how powerful they are, and that they might pose a danger even to their creators. Gholam appear to be whatever
they are created to appear as, any race at all, on the outside. However internaly, Gholam have no skeletal or nervous
structure and do not bleed. Stun weapons have no effect on them, and it seems that they take many blows without effect due
to their strength and lack of pain or blood to spill. Also because of the lack of a skeleton they can compress themselves
to fit through narrow spaces, even sliding themselves under doors to get at their victims. They can also change the
dimensions of their body as well as change the features of their skin making them effectively shapeshifters. They are
totaly unnafected by the force, the force seems to melt into them leaving them unscathed anythime it is sued against them.
Not only that but they can sense anyone using the force within 10 kilometers and get an exact lcoation within 5
kilometers. They can also sense the ability to use the force within people, seen as an aura that is brighter with the
degree of training they have. During the time of the old Republic and the War of Shadows, when the Myrddraal and Trollocs
and all their ilk ,were at their pinnalce outwardly atatcking the entire galaxy, these Gholam were sent out to strike down
every jedi they could find. They hunted down the jedi as best they could, but the untied jedi and the Republic managed to
repel the Shadowspawn, as the collective group of evil creatures were refered to, and end the war. It is rumored that
Vader and Palpatine used two Gholam during the Great Purge.

and how much training they have)
