Star Wars: The Fist of Oppression
Neimoidians were a species of humanoids that were distant genetic relatives of Duros. They were native to the planet of Neimoidia1 and also lived on colony worlds in the same sector like Cato Neimoidia, Deko Neimoidia, and Koru Neimoidia. They had a reputation for greed and cowardice. Neimoidians placed tremendous value on wealth and material possesions, and would go to great lengths to gain money and power; however, they were very easily intimidated, and hated combat. They were famous for running the Trade Federation, a massive corporate entity. Famous Neimoidians included Nute Gunray and Rune Haako, high ranking members of the Trade Federation who later joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems, a separatist movement which waged war on the Galactic Republic.
