- "Possessed of tough skin, infrared vision and the ability to regenerate lost limbs, the saurian Trandoshans are highly evolved hunters often found working as mercenaries and enforcers. Their culture revolves around combat and belief in an all-knowing goddess called the Scorekeeper who grants “Jagannath points” for honorable kills. These points denote an individual’s status in Trandoshan society and purportedly determine a Trandoshan’s eventual fate in the afterlife; consequently, even outside of physical combat, Trandoshan society is extremely competitive. Trandoshans share their native star system with the Wookiee homeworld Kashyyyk, and the two species have a long and vicious history together. Trandoshans see the wildlife of Kashyyyk–including the Wookiees themselves–as choice prey, and the Wookiees readily and violently defend their beloved home from raids by Trandoshan hunters and slavers."
- ―In-game Codex (Species)
Trandoshans (T'doshok in their language) are large, bipedal reptilian humanoids from the planet Trandosha (or Dosha). They have super-sensitive eyes that could see into the infrared range and the ability to regenerate lost limbs, although very slowly. Trandoshans are anatomically built heavier and stronger than most humanoids, including Humans. They also periodically shed their skin. Unlike some other reptilian humanoids such as the Barabels and the Ssi-ruuk, Trandoshans have no tails.
As a species, they are renowned across the galaxy for great strength. This is evidenced by several members of other species boasting physical prowess and power by having defeated a Trandoshan, either in battle or in a contest of strength. The racial tensions between Trandoshans and Wookiees will be found in SWTOR storylines.Qyzen Fess is a Trandoshan companion for the Jedi Consular
