"This one is a harmless funny foreigner here to snark at you. That's-a-right, boss. Ohai, Jedi! Now this one will go smash the Jew and save Kazakhstan!"
―A Barabel, being all foreign

Barabels were warrior-like lizard people who excelled in hunting and tracking. Like the Trandoshans. Except with tails. And without all the slavery. Actually, the biggest difference between Barabels and Trandoshans was Barabels were good, and Trandoshans were evil, even though both were stereotypical primitive hunters with strong family ties. Barabels spoke in amusing butchered Basic, sort of like Yoda, saying "this one" instead of "I," whereas Trandoshans spoke in an intimidating hiss. Amusing ethnic speech patterns = good. Hissing = evil. The only times Barabels made terrifying hissing noises was when they found something incredibly hilarious... or incredibly sad. It was impossible to tell which emotion they were trying to express, which made for awkward moments during political rallies and stand-up comedy routines.

The most famous Barabel was Saba Sebatyne, a female Barabel Jedi who alternated being the grim warrior of few words and the comic relief.

Barabels didn't enslave Wookiees, but they did occasionally hunt Verpine and make them into gumbo.
