The nobargan (kloonorbargan plural) are the apelike hairy men of Amtor.


With extremely close-set eyes and baboonlike faces, nobargan walk upright on two legs and have rough hair covering their entire body. Their smell is described as horrible and suffocating and their flat feet and hands have heavy pointed talon-like nails on them.


Nobargan are without a doubt the most primitive race on Amtor,and their language has only one hundred words. They live in poorly constructed huts and eat the flesh of the local Gan population with little care. The men and women have few differences and are equal in their culture. They do appoint a jong (king) in their tribes. Their weapons are crude bows and slings.
