The !'hew are a people who were often described as "primitive and violent," and are often hired as petty thugs. The live on an arid desert planet on Deneb IV, where they live as nomadic herders. At about two meters tall, the hulking, humanoid !'hew had long limbs and a single large eye that dominated their greenish-tan foreheads.
An !'hew could heal quickly and regenerate any body part, which some believe contributed to an especially violent racial culture. Their fast regeneration is believed to have been an adaptation to prevent fluid loss from bleeding. Because of their regenerative abilities, An !'hew could live up to 300 standard years. Elderly !'hew lost these regenerative abilities, and either voluntarily exiled themselves to die in the desert or were ritually killed by their tribe.
