Technical Adeptness: The Chakarri have a natural skill with technical items and as such gain +2D for every 1D placed in Technical
skills during character creation.
The Chikarri were sapient rodents from Plagen. They were a sentient species with mammalian features. They had two arms and two legs with a
long tail which made them very agile on their feet.
Chikarri tended to be very inquisitive in nature. They had been known to disassemble pieces of technology quickly and rapidly discern its
function. They then adapted the new technology to their own. This knowledge of a wide range of technology made them valued as mechanics
Biology and Appearance:
Averaging between one to one and one half meters tall, Chikarri resembled a humanoid squirrel. They had short, squat bodies covered in
thick fur including their tail. They had two short arms ending in clawed hands, and two legs with large clawed feet. In addition, they had
a long tail that allowed them to balance well where others would have been precarious. Chikarri were exceptional climbers and extremely
stable on their feet. Having developed in the forest canopy of their world, they were known to be at home in high places.
Chikarri had a high metabolism, which required them to eat a large quantity of food daily. This metabolism also affected their speech and
movement as they spoke very quickly and their movement was fast and jerky.
The Chikarri evolved on the planet Plagen, a forested world with a large number of lakes and plateaus. They descended from tree-dwelling
rodents native to their world and continued to live in cities in the trees.
Society and Culture:
Early on in the history of their species, Chikarri quickly became fond of technology. Their evolution from fire and the wheel to nuclear
power and space flight spanned just over 1,000 years. Once they expanded out into the galaxy, they became fixated on the technology
available to them and quickly incorporated into their own. Despite their aggressive technological prowess, the Chikarri embraced the
concept of eco-friendly. They well understand the connection between the planet and themselves. As such, their technology was typically
advanced toward making no impact on the biology of their homeworld. This advancement had led to their standing as makers of low radiation
Chikarri in the Galaxy:
The Chikarri, though fascinated with alien technology, were very centered around their homeworld and had yet to venture far into the
galaxy. A few however had taken it upon themselves to explore further into the galaxy and as such were sometimes seen on a variety of
worlds far from their home.
Hoarders: Chikarri are hyperactive and hard working, but are driven to hoard valuables, goods, or money, especially in the form of shiny
metal or gems.

Plagen was a planet in the Expansion Region, on the Enarc Run, with high plateaus covered in lakes and grasslands; its lowlands were dry
When the planet was discovered in 500 BBY, its port rights were sold to the Klatooinian Trade Guild. The planet was the headquarters of
Treeker Security Systems, Boyd's Be-There-In-A-Minute Delivery Service and Chirrit & Chirrit Locks, Vaults, and Safes.
During the Clone Wars, the planet was the site of the First Battle of Plagen. Prior to the battle, a tactical droid killed Kerkoiden
General Piar Nagelsa, due to issues most tactical droids had with serving under organic leaders, and then discarded the general's plans--
