Description: Quermians were a gaunt, long-necked humanoid sentient species native to the planet Quermia. They had two brains, one located inside their head and the other within their chest cavity, and two pairs of arms. During the Trade Federation's Invasion of Naboo, four Quermians were enrolled in the Jedi Order, one of whom was Jedi Master Yarael Poof, a member of the Jedi High Council.
Biology and appearance
Quermians were a willowy humanoid garden sentient species that had pasty white skin and red eyes, which were located in a bulbous head with a small mouth that was located on top of a craning neck. They had two brains, one located in their head and the other inside their chest cavity. Possessing no spines, Quermians were notable for their towering stature, with an average member of the species standing over three feet taller than most other humanoids. Quermians had two sets of thin arms with hands that terminated in several slender digits, and a pair of legs that ended in large toed feet. The second pair of arms was often hidden and was supported by the braina located in the chest cavity. Lacking noses, Quermians instead smelled using olfactory glands in their hands. Quermians could live up to 200 years of age, possibly more. Due to the Quermian's many physical and genetic similarities to the Xexto, xenobiologists believed them to share a common ancestor.
Society and culture
Some Quermians, such as Jedi Master Yarael Poof, preferred to conceal their second set of arms beneath clothing, and traditionally wore cannom collars.
