The Tulgah were a sentient species of short beings with squat, humanoid frames and yellow skin. Their faces were elongated and snout-like, and their limbs ended in sharp claws. Tulgah were inherently magical. Different Tulgah put their abilities to different uses. For example, some became great healers, while others turned to evil pursuits.
130 BBY, the colony ship Free Enterprise left Eriadu carrying hundreds of Tulgah and Jinda colonists who planned to settle Kuna's Eye. However, the ship crashed on the forest moon of Endor. There both species established healthy populations. One of the colonists' descendants was the evil Tulgah witch Morag, who was an enemy of the Ewoks of Bright Tree Village during the Galactic Civil War. The Dulok shaman Umwak impersonated a Tulgah trader in order to steal the Hate potion from Ewoks.
