From the journals of Krin Koda:

"We've finally made starfall off of Zeltros. We're four days behind schedule and low on supplies, but I don't regret a single minute of the delay. It's been a long time since I've had so much fun on shore leave.

"I have, of course, heard rumors about Zeltrons, but nothing could've prepared me for the actuality of meeting them. They're very similar to genetically pure humans except in one important respect. Their skin color runs the whole spectrum of reds from mauve to purple to lilac to pink. I must say, it does suit them. In general, Zeltrons seem to be slightly taller than average humans, but that might be because they're all incredibly fit. During my stay I consumed mass quantities of food and drink. While I put on a couple kilos, my guide, Feybyan, seemed unaffected by most of what we ate and drank including one rather potent concoction that he would describe only as 'green'. I would speculate that they have an advanced cardiovascular system and a hyperactive metabolism. In any case, they don't get hangovers either. Lucky bastards.

"Their biology has well adapted them to their most common pastime: having fun. To call Zeltrons hedonistic would be a gross understatement. They'll do anything or go anywhere as long as it seems like a good time. I don't wish to imply that they're completely frivolous. Just mostly frivolous. That said, many of the Zeltrons I encountered were bright, intelligent and curious about some of my advanced technologies and news of the outside galaxy.

"I did observe a bit of Zeltron culture that I had not heard about. Wrong a Zeltron and you've got an enemy for life. While brunching at the Pink Pfarfin Bar and Grill, I observed a young Zeltron attack a disreputable Corellian trader. The Zeltron was not much more than a child really, but the cold and brutal manner in which he dispatched the trader was quite chilling. Wisely, I chose not to get involved. Feybyan later explained that the trader had murdered the boy's father in a dispute over a card game many seasons back, and the boy had been waiting for the Corellian to return to Zeltros.

"The incident seems to highlight the core cultural trait of the Zeltrons I encountered. They don't do anything half way. Visitors like myself get to experience the best part of that, from partying on the azure duned shores of Lake Zeltara to base jumping from the misty peak of Mount Kifin. Zeltrons seem eager to wring the most out of every experience and emotion they have. They can be quite intense company, to say the least.

"However, I've found Zeltrons to be an affable and friendly people. I'm not sure I could manage their style of life on a permanent basis, but once I get rid of that damn medallion, I plan on returning."
