An ysalamir (plural ysalamiri) was a furry, lizard-like tree-dweller (about 50 cm in length) from Myrkr, most known for its ability to repel the Force by creating a Force-neutral bubble. This ability evolved in response to predation by the Force-sensitive vornskrs.
Adult ysalamiri grew up to 90 or 120 centimeters. Babies were one meter long and 5 centimeters high and hatched from bubble-like eggs.Ysalamiri sank their claws into the trees on which they lived and drew nutrients. It was very difficult to remove a ysalamir from its tree without killing it, although Talon Karrde's smugglers found a way, enabling Grand Admiral Thrawn to do it as well. Thrawn used ysalamiri for defense by attaching them to a back harness which allowed Grand Admiral Thrawn and his men to remain safely inside the ysalamiri's force repelling bubble. He used this trick to gain the attention of cloned Dark Jedi master Joruus C'baoth and accelerating the Spaarti cloning process without the usual side-effects (which occurred when similar Force imprints interfered with one another).
