FATHIER (STAR WARS)
Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi
Fathiers, also known as “space horses,” were a species of non-sentient quadrupeds that resided in the galaxy. They were often used as mounts, and wealthy inhabitants of Kergans and Cantonica rode them in competition.
Biology and appearance
A non-sentient quadruped species, fathiers were distinguished by their long legs, brown fur, and large ears. Fathiers were capable of running at great speeds across various terrains, including beaches, fields, and cliff faces. Their speed made them sought after by wealthy residents of the galaxy, and the creatures were viewed as graceful and majestic. People that saw fathiers in person for the first time were often shocked by their size. When cooped up, fathiers required endurance exercises, so fathier transports were equipped with double-gravity chambers.
Fathiers were able to be domesticated, and they were used as mounts in competition. The inhabitants of the planet Cantonica exploited them in highly popular races on the Canto Bight racetracks, in which the animals suffered abuse.
