The Zartans were a reptilian species native to the planet Zarta. They resembled multi-colored frilled lizards but were humanoid in size and body structure. When alarmed, they would raise the frills around their necks just like regular frilled lizards. Since Zartans were at least semi-carnivorous, they had sharp teeth and talon-like claws, which gave them an edge in close combat. There had been two Zartan Jedi: Grishnak and his granddaughter, Zeferi. Zartans usually lived to be about 250-300 years of age, but it was unknown how old Grishnak was when he died in 0 ABY. Zeferi was thought to be the last remaining Zartan, as the species' homeworld was destroyed by the Empire.
