The Shard were a silicon-based species native to the planet of Orax. They were immobile in their crystalline state, but many were installed in to special droid bodies. They were considered to be inorganic, a sentient crystal with no hair or eye color and had an average height of 0.3 meters and 0.4 meters. Shard's usually grew in large clusters, and reproduced asexually by other crystals forming off of the parent crystal. A famous Shard was Adegan (Jedi); although Shards were inorganic they could still be Force-sensitive.
