Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Force Unleashed Campaign Guide
Yakora are among the most mysterious Species in the galaxy. Though individual Yakora made their way into the vast, galactic underworld for many decades, the Species as a whole managed to escape formal notice until after the Battle of Yavin. During The Dark Times, the Yakora perform the activities they are known for: information brokering, petty theft, and the occasional con job.
Yakora are adept at gathering information, aided by their acute senses of sight and hearing. Most Yakora try to keep a low profile by acting alone. However, those who find a ship or gang useful have no trouble gathering the needed henchmen, thanks to their natural charisma.
