- "Why are you looking at me like that? Huh? It's the salt habit, isn't it? Well FUCK YOU!"
- ―An Arcona Jedi to Han Solo
Arcona were big-eyed lizard aliens who were hopelessly addicted to salt, which had a powerful hallucinogenic effect on them. Going for a swim in the ocean caused them to O.D. Common table salt was addictive enough, but MSG was like crack cocaine to them. More adventurous Arcona used season salt and garlic salt.
After years of offworld dealers profiting off the Arcona's addiction, the Galactic Republic finally intervened. They tried using paprika and cloves to rehabilitate the species, but to no avail. Even those rare Arcona who learned how to use the Force were not immune to this condition. During the Yuuzhan Vong War, one rather surly Jedi Knight mouthed off to Han Solo for prejudicing him in this manner.
The main export of the Arconan homeworld was pepper.
