Background: The Khurtanans are a Sebaceanoid species, and inhabit the planet New Khurtanan in Tormented Space. The species is afraid of space madness and requires all visitors to undergo medical examination. Gender relations are tense on the planet; women are oppressed, but a resistance movement is planning a violent coup. The movement is already using non-native qatal mollusks for political assassinations. Some women disguise themselves as males to perform male-designated tasks.

Khurtanans are familiar with Scarrans and will not allow them on the planet. Their mechanics also know of Leviathans and can repair them.

A long time ago Khurtanan was settled by the Mandalorians and the Khurtanans where forced to relocate. As such they hold great animosity towards the Mandalorians but their fear of space madness keeps them from ever heading out into space to see vengeance or seek to regain control of their former homeworld.
