The Navajaó are a species of saurian creatures native to the world of Scullulae, at the Core Worlds of the Cyrannus Galaxy. Relatively young for a Cyrannian race, they have become known for their philosophy of living your life as freely as possible, something which has come to clash heavily with the rise of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus. The race has been stereotyped across the galaxy as lazy and not inventive, preferring to flee from their responsibilities and live comfortably with what they know than to dare leave their comfort zones.
Natives to the lush world of Scullulae, the Navajaó were uplifted into space by the Libertus of the Federation of United Worlds, joining the galactic scene at around 480 BNE. Having a history of peace and understanding - having come to detest the spilling of unnecessary blood -, the Navajaó expanded across their neighbouring space spreading a message of peace to the rest of the Core Worlds, leading them to become popular across their space. Particularly strong were their ties with the Ermitant Empire of the Mid Rim, who found the Navajaó to be perfect trading partners in their dealings with the Core Worlds.
The Navajaó would eventually suffer at the hands of the Corthrinus at 250 BNE, where a rebel faction of their kind believed them to be a weak race ripe for conquest. The friendly Navajaó, having a military fit only to fight space pirates, were easy prey for the fearsome aliens of the Unknown Regions, though after three months of conflict, the Corthrinus were pushed back by reinforcements from the Federation of United Worlds. This act solidified the Navajaó's loyalty to the Federation, leading them to later be eager members of the United Republic of Cyrannus during its existence.
The Navajaó were largely against the formation of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus, but had no means to combat it in any meaningful manner, leading them to accept subjugation in order to protect their own safety. With the outbreak of the Second Great Cyrannus War, many Navajaó have tried fleeing to the New Cyrannian Republic in an attempt to return to the times of peace, quiet and freedom.
The Navajaó are a humanoid race of reptiles, typically sporting brown scales which cover their heads, limbs and backs, with a silvery white patch of scales covers their stomaches. They are distinct for the crests upon their heads, with them believing bigger crests are a symbol of personal valor. Navajaó females can be distinguished from the males by their body colouration, which is a lighter tone of brown. In terms of size, most Navajaó are a little over two meters tall, taller than humans but considerably shorter than races such as the Libertus.
Navajaó believe personal freedom to live one's life as they believe is right is the greatest virtue, leading them to develop amiable, laid back lifestyles. Because of this, they are reluctant to change, and few of them dedicate themselves to scientific or military roles of great importance. Due to their laid back demeanor, many races have called them outright lazy, a fact many them find humorous rather than insulting. Many Navajaó speak with verbal ticks, the most common being "ey?" at the end of their sentences.

“I shudder to think of the horrors the Empire must be inflicting on Scullulae. Make no mistake, the Republic will not rest until all the Core Worlds, and indeed all worlds in Cyrannus, are free from Tyrómairon's oppression.”
