Duros were a humanoid sentient species native to the planet Duro. They, along with Corellians and Tionese, were one of the first species to recreate and harness the hyperdrive developed by the Infinite Empire. They were considered a pioneering spacefaring species because of their hyperdrive work and their extensive efforts to colonize the galaxy. Their colonies included Neimoidia, Cato Neimoidia, Deko Neimoidia and Koru Neimoidia. They had blue skin, with red eyes and hairless scalps. Duros preferred the honorific "Traveler" when being addressed.
