CS Guide: Species

From Wikipedia of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood, an online Star Wars Club
Real World Perspective.

"In our efforts, we have learned that life is not rare. Rather, given a chance, life will occur. It is tenacious, aggressive—it seems to crave existence."
Tem Eliss, sentientologist

Species in Star Wars are a big deal. Their existence is something that separates the Lore from other Science Fiction, where even if a culture is only mentioned once, people will flock to try and create characters from it. Each Species has something unique about them, from being able to regenerate limbs, to being able to breathe underwater! It’s fascinating, really, but also creates a struggle for us to incorporate into a balanced system. And on top of that, we don’t use dice rolls or algorithms for our system and game. So, “balancing” becomes subjective to the ones in charge of organizing and maintaining the system.

Wookiees: An Example

Let's take Wookiees for example. As you can see below in their entry, Wookiees are extremely powerful. However, it never really made sense to say that ALL Wookiees got a “+1” to Might. +1 to Might becomes relative to...what exactly? Average Human strength? How do we even? (On a scale of 1-11, you can’t even). Instead, you see that the language focuses more on “feats” (oohh, that’s why they call them that??) of strength like holding open a blast door.

With that strength and size, of course, comes the sour fact that you can’t really fit a Wookiee in your secret compartment in the cargo hold. They are also kind of hard to get to blend in with even a crowd of mixed humanoids. This is made apparent with the second species feat, and provides a balance to the merit. You will see this present in every Species.

Policies

To view the formal policy used for adding Species to the Character Sheet System, please see the Species Approval Policy.

Grandfather Clause

Per Grand Master Pravus, select Species that are currently in the system have been flagged with a dark red Grandfathered tag. These tags indicate Species that are being honored for use in Character Sheets 2.0 for existing characters that existed prior to the launch of Character Sheet 2.0 (2015-08-09). This means that while members who had previously been playing a race like Miraluka can continue to do so, they will not be available to new characters being created.

Going forward, only races that appear in Star Wars Canon will be incorporated or added. Each new race must go through the Voice Staff and be approved before being added in.

Hybrids

Hybrid species are not very common, but have been known to appear in Canon content. For example, Humans and Twi'leks have born hybrid children in the Clone Wars animated series. Currently, we have very specific requirements for the treatment of Hybrid combinations in our system. The most notable requirement is for the desired races to be of similar origin, that means Reptilian Humanoids cannot mate with Mammalian Humanoids.

The way we handle this is that a Hybrid member picks a dominant Species as their selected Species on the Character Creation Tool. Then, in their Physical Description Field, they can elaborate on the cosmetic differences their character is afforded based on the notable traits of their secondary Species.

You can see an example of a half-Human, half-Chiss NPC Harry West's character sheet.

Phsysicaldescriptionharry.PNG


For more specific details for incorporating a Hybrid selection for your character, refer to the Species section of the Character Sheet Approval Guidelines.

In short:

  • A hybrid Species will only get Feats from their Primary Species. They do not get Feats of the Secondary.
  • A hybrid Species can have cosmetic elements of their Secondary Species worked into their Physical Description.
  • Reptiles can't mate with Mammals

Species

Aleena

Aleena

Notable Traits:

  • Small stature
  • Naturally curious
  • Love adventure
  • Wide mouth
  • Large eyes
  • Fast metabolism

Description:

Aleena were short, reptilian bipeds with large eyes and wide mouths full of small, sharp teeth. Aleena's bodies were long compared to their short arms and stubby legs. They possessed exceptional reflexes as well as a fast metabolism which allowed them to convert food into energy very rapidly in order to escape predators on their harsh home planet.

Character sheet aleena.png

Average Height:

0.8 meters

Languages:

  • Aleena
  • Basic

Unique Species Feat: Bite Size

Due to {{gender:his,her}} small form, {{member}} is able to fit or stow away into smaller areas and confined spaces. While this makes {{gender:him,her}} better suited towards scouting and moving about unseen, {{gender:his,her}} body mass makes {{gender:him,her}} subject to the harsh realities of physics when utilizing their Might against non-small form species, or utilizing their Endurance to cover the same distances or carry out tasks that require physical stamina.

Unique Species Feat: Nine Lives

Aleena are known to be easily excitable, and will often rush into danger before truly knowing the full scope of it. Fortunately, they have evolved to possess heightened-reflexes in their spry physiology. {{member}} is often able to avoid impending physical harm thanks to {{gender:his,her}} elevated reaction time, even if it is {{gender:his,her}} own fault for being in danger in the first place.

Bothan

Bothan

Notable Traits:

  • Mood-sensitive fur
  • Craves intrigue and subterfuge
  • Tapered pointed ears

Description:

Bothans were furry mammalian anthropoids, about 1.5 meters tall. Hailing from Bothawui and several colonies, Bothans differed in facial appearance and body structure with canine, feline, and equine features. They were known for being master politicians and spies, craving intrigue and subterfuge.

Character sheet bothan.png

Average Height:

1.4 to 1.5 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Sabaac Face

Bothan culture has evolved around the species’ penchant for politics and social manipulation. Having been born into that culture, {{member}} is able to use {{gender:his,her}} Subterfuge to appear and remain unrattled during potentially sensitive situations that involve deception or manipulation.

Unique Species Feat: Bad Reputation

The same traits that make Bothans excellent diplomats and spies also result in a rather untrustworthy image for members of the species. Placing their personal interests above all others, Bothans are known for adhering to the “Bothan Way” to the point of backstabbing and beguiling anyone to get what they desire. Despite {{member}}’s best intentions, {{gender:he,she}} is often accused of sharing this generalization and can be labeled as untrustworthy.

Chiss

Chiss

Notable Traits:

  • Blue skin
  • Glowing red eyes
  • Above-average night vision
  • Rapid maturity

Description:

The Chiss were a tall, blue-skinned Near-Human civilization from the planet Csilla in the Unknown Regions.

Character sheet chiss.png

Average Height:

1.6 to 2.1 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Sore Thumbs

As the Chiss are fairly isolationist in nature, the sighting of one is a fairly rare occurrence. {{member}}’s telltale blue skin and red eyes are seen as exotic qualities to most other species. Thus, {{member}} finds increased difficulty with blending into crowds.

Unique Species Feat: Wise Beyond Years

Members of the Chiss species mature at a faster rate in their society. Disciplined under a well-structured upbringing, {{member}} recognizes the value of propriety and self-control better than most species. As a result of intense schooling, {{member}} has a habit of simply knowing things about the galaxy and its occupants that others might have overlooked, and can adapt to new concepts outside of the norm at a quicker rate.

(Back to Top)


Clawdite

Clawdite

Notable Traits:

  • Shape shifting ability
  • Green to yellow skin hues
  • Yellow slitted eyes

Description:

Clawdites were a humanoid sentient species native to the planet of Zolan. They were one of the few shape-shifting species in the galaxy, and were sometimes referred to as Changelings.

Character sheet clawdite.png

Average Height:

1.6 to 1.8 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Genetic Manipulation

Genetic manipulation has gifted the Clawdite species with the extremely rare ability to change their appearance. Mimicking the appearance of similarly-shaped species, {{member}} can change the color and texture of {{gender:his,her}} skin and eyes to appear nearly indistinguishable from the target species. However, the Clawdite’s shifting abilities cause great discomfort and, as a result, intense concentration is required to maintain the disguise.

Unique Species Feat: Pragmatic

Clawdites are a solitary species who prefer isolation and shun the company of others unless it is to their benefit. {{member}} holds pragmatic views of the galaxy, and is often mistrustful of others and suspicious of their motives. The stigma is not mutually exclusive, though: other species are untrusting of the shapeshifters.

Devaronian

Devaronian

Notable Traits:

  • Red, brown, green or white skin
  • Long pointed ears
  • Two horns (male)
  • Bald (male)
  • Hair (female)
  • Two dark circles on forehead (female)

Description:

Devaronians are a sentient species from the planet Devaron. They exhibit great sexual dimorphism, with the males being bald and sporting horns, and the hornless females displaying a full head of hair.

Character sheet devaronian.png

Average Height:

1.9 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Pick Your Poison

Devaronians possess silver-based blood type with two livers filtering out most toxins. This makes {{member}} more resistant to toxins and poisons that are inflicted through the bloodstream, and allows {{gender:him,her}} to consume foodstuffs that are otherwise potent to other species.

Unique Species Feat: The Face You Can't Hide

Devaronians are recognizable as a dimorphic species within the galaxy, the differences between their genders more distinct than simple genetics. The horned, bald males stand out in a crowd, while the females still have vestigial bumps that give them away. As a result, it is difficult for {{member}} to disguise {{gender:himself,herself}} in terms of appearance and even more so when trying to pose as the opposite gender.

(Back to Top)


Duros

Duros

Notable Traits:

  • Gifted explorers
  • Adventurous and socially gregarious
  • Blue-green skin
  • Red eyes
  • Long, thin and noseless faces

Character sheet duros.png

Average Height:

1.7 to 2.2 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Duro The Explorer

Like all Duros, {{member}} is a gifted space explorer. This makes it easier for {{gender:him,her}} to calculate hyperspace routes, though without special training {{gender:he,she}} would still need to rely on a droid or computer to make all the necessary calculations correctly.

Unique Species Feat: Adventure Time!

{{member}} is more likely to be adventurous and gregarious due to {{gender:his,her}} cultural heritage as a Duros. While this makes {{member}} a more exciting person to be around, it can sometimes get {{member}} and {{gender:his,her}} friends into trouble. That’s how you know it’s an adventure.

Ewok

Ewok

Notable Traits:

  • Furry
  • Short
  • Acute sense of smell

Description:

Ewoks are a diminutive, furry, bipedal species from the forest moon of Endor. Their fur ranges from shades of white and brown to black, and they have two fingers and an opposable thumb. They are omnivores with an acute sense of smell, and are more comfortable in primitive forest environments than modern locales. Although they can learn to understand other languages, like Galactic Basic, they are physically unable to speak them.

Character sheet ewok.png

Average Height:

1 meter

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Yub Nub!

Boasting a culture of arboreal warriors who prize courage and success, Ewoks are dauntless by nature. Through sheer force of will, {{member}} has a penchant for succeeding in situations that would overwhelm or terrify other beings.

Unique Species Feat: Pint Size

Due to {{gender:his,her}} small form, {{member}} is able to fit or stow away into smaller areas and confined spaces. However, this also means that body mass makes {{gender:him,her}} subject to the harsh realities of physics when utilizing {{gender:his,her}} Might against non-small form Species. This also holds true for utilizing {{gender:his,her}} Endurance to cover the same distances as a non-small Species, or when carrying out tasks that require physical stamina.

(Back to Top)


Falleen

Falleen

Notable Traits:

  • Cold-blooded (green)
  • Long lives - avg. 250 years

Unique Species Feat: Simply Irresistible

{{member}} can utilize their natural pheromones to make {{gender:him,her}} appear irresistible to any gender of any species. When coupled with {{gender:his,her}} exotic appearance, {{member}} can more easily ply Manipulation on those who are unprepared.

Unique Species Feat: Superior By Nature

The Falleen, as a culture, respect discipline and self-control above all else. When coupled with their own demeanor in comparison to that of more openly passionate races, {{member}} considers {{gender:himself,herself}} to be unquestionably superior to the other races of the galaxy. In turn, this demeanor will manifest itself as arrogance when interacting with most other species.

(Back to Top)


Gand

Gand

Notable Traits:

  • Two subspecies - Breathers or Lungless
  • Exoskeleton
  • Can see into the ultraviolet spectrum
  • Can regrow lost limbs

Character sheet gand.png

Average Height:

1.4 to 1.6 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: This One Gand

Gand, as a species, are humble and thus refer to themselves in the third person, earning the right to use first-person pronouns after several feats and accomplishments. As a result, {{member}} finds the first-person form of address to be arrogant, and often downplays {{gender:his,her}} personal achievements.

Unique Species Feat: Chitin Mail

{{member}} possesses a chitinous exoskeleton that will protect {{gender:him,her}} from significant harm. While the exoskeleton remains intact, it is resistant to blunt and bladed weaponry, but will crack under repeated blows.

  • Distinctive pronunciation of basic
  • Extendable tongues
  • Long ears
  • Short lives - avg. 65 years

Gungans were a species of amphibious humanoids that hailed from the oceans of Naboo. They came from a largely isolationist society that relied on ‘growing’ organic technology and working with animals.

Character sheet gungan.png

Average Height:

1.9 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: These Legs Were Made For Walkin’

As a Gungan, {{member}} has long legs with strong muscles, resulting in longer strides and greater propulsion underwater. Coupled with {{gender:his,her}} amphibious nature, this makes {{gender:him,her}} a natural runner and jumper, and a fast and agile swimmer. When exposed to dry or desert conditions for too long, however, {{gender:his,her}} health and mood will suffer.

Unique Species Feat: A Pet In Need

Gungan society, particularly their military, makes heavy use of animals as mounts and beasts of burden. As a result, {{member}} has a natural affinity for working with animals and {{gender:he,she}} finds it easier to employ suitable animals as mounts and beasts of burden.

Human

Human

Notable Traits:

  • Pale to dark brown skin tones
  • Wide spectrum of hair color
  • Wide spectrum of eye color

Description:

Humans, taxonomically referred to as Homo sapiens, were the galaxy's most numerous and politically dominant sentient species with millions of major and minor colonies galaxy-wide.

Character sheet human.png

Average Height:

1.8 meters

Languages:

  • Basic

Unique Species Feat: Just Another Face

Humans are the most common species in most of the known galaxy, and can thus blend into crowds of other Humans seamlessly. While their own distinctive individual qualities such as hair color and height can set them apart, {{member}} is otherwise just another mug in a sea of faces.

Unique Species Feat: Eye Of The Tiger

As a Human, {{member}} can conform to new environments with relative ease. Not possessing traits such as scales, gills or fur, {{member}} is nonetheless adaptable to either cold or warm climates with minimal preparation. This makes most members of the Human species best-suited for the life of a colonist or traveller.

Character sheet iktotchi.png

Average Height:

1.8 meters

Languages:

  • Basic
  • Iktotchese

Unique Species Feat: Only When I Dream

All Iktotchi, including {{member}}, may experience precognitive dreams while they sleep. This precognitive ability is clearer on the Iktotchi homeworld, but elsewhere in the galaxy they are often vague, sometimes difficult to interpret and occasionally unhelpful without proper training in the Force. In addition to gaining insights with {{gender:his,her}} Farsight power through meditation, {{member}} can also use {{gender:his,her}} Farsight power while asleep.

Unique Species Feat: No Trace Of A Sound

Iktotchi possess a natural affinity for Telepathy, allowing {{member}} to communicate telepathically with another being, however {{gender:he,she}} must maintain direct eye contact in order to do so unless {{gender:he,she}} has been properly trained in the ways of the Force.

{{member}}'s large stature and form bears the burden of slower reflexes and less coordination relative to {{gender:his,her}} Athletics skill.

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Warm Reception

Thanks to the thermal pits under {{gender:his,her}} eyes, {{member}} can sense the infrared spectrum, allowing {{gender:him,her}} to ‘see’ in the dark by observing and detecting changes in and the presence of heat.

Unique Species Feat: Rattlesnake

Due to their insular and war-like nature, Kaleesh often do not see eye to eye with the more peaceful species of the galaxy. This makes it more challenging for {{member}} to conduct diplomatic relations and can lead to difficulty in social settings.

  • Can survive in a vacuum
  • Black/silver eyes

1.4 to 2.0 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: I Will Survive

By utilizing {{gender:his,her}} unique physiology and antiox breathing mask, {{member}} is capable of surviving in the hazardous conditions of a complete vacuum for several minutes. However, evolution in a unique atmosphere comprised of Dorin gas and helium prevents members of the Kel Dor species from breathing unaided in oxygen-rich atmospheres.

Unique Species Feat: A World Of Absolutes

The Kel Dor society is one known for its hospitality, but also its simplistic approach to matters of justice. To {{member}}, there is no middle ground on any moral issue, causing {{gender:him,her}} to only see matters in black and white. Regardless of intent, only the resulting actions fall under the scope of judgement.

Kiffar

Kiffar

Notable Traits:

  • Varied skin hues

Languages:

  • Basic
  • Lasat

Unique Species Feat: The Child, The Warrior, The Fool

{{member}} has muscular digitigrade legs, large finger pads and prehensile toes. These genetic gifts make running, jumping and climbing easier for {{gender:him,her}} and also have the advantage of letting {{member}} move quietly when needed. When combined with a Lasat’s distinct odor and large stature, however, stealth is not always that easy. It can also make things difficult for {{member}} when trying to fit into compressed spaces or blend in with the other species of the galaxy.

Unique Species Feat: Few And The Proud

After being driven to the point of extinction by the Galactic Empire, Lasat tend to keep to themselves and avoid drawing the attention of the galaxy at large. As a result, {{member}} often has to contend with stereotypes of {{gender:his,her}} species being nothing more than primitive brutes—despite the importance that Lasat place on intellect, combat skills, and most importantly honor.

Notable Traits:

  • Mirialan

Unique Species Feat: Karma

Mirialans religiously practice a primitive understanding of the Force.

This makes {{member}} far more perceptive in determining the immediate outcomes of {{gender:his,her}} actions through weighing the consequences.

Unique Species Feat: It’s All On My Face

Mirialans bear facial markings that show they have completed certain tests or tasks. Therefore, it is clear to the world what {{member}} has accomplished and thus {{gender:he,she}} will face great difficulty in passing {{gender:himself,herself}} off as an expert in something {{gender:he,she}} is not adept in or when attempting to feign ignorance.

1.3 to 1.8 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Fish Out Of Water

Like all Mon Calamari, {{member}} can breathe indefinitely underwater and submerge to significant depths without issue. This evolution in a deep sea environment makes {{member}} an adept swimmer, but prolonged exposure to hot and dry atmospheres is particularly uncomfortable and will cause {{gender:his,her}} skin to shrivel.

Unique Species Feat: It’s a Trap!

Mon Calamari possess a near-legendary quality of being both determined and dedicated. Once {{member}} decides on a course of action, {{gender:he,she}} cannot be easily swayed from {{gender:his,her}} decision. Because of this determination, {{member}} is fixated on causes that seem hopeless from the start, making {{gender:him,her}} more likely to find themselves in perilous circumstances.

Hailing from the mineral-rich world of Muunilinst, their mathematical acumen made them prized bankers and statisticians throughout the galaxy.

Character sheet muun.png

Average Height:

1.9 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Heartwarming

Muun were known for their ternary vascular system, which included two additional hearts whose functions are under their conscious control.

Unique Species Feat: Space Snakes & Foxes

Muun are notorious for always keeping their word - but not always in the way expected. Though contracts and laws are considered sacred by {{gender:his,her}} society, {{member}} will not hesitate to exploit technicalities to {{gender:his,her}} advantage. {{member}} has a knack for finding loopholes in contracts, which while useful in negotiation and diplomacy can make others wary of trusting a deal made with {{gender:him,her}}.

Unique Species Feat: Unblinking

One of the more distinct features of Nautolans are their lidless eyes. Because of {{gender:his,her}} lack of eyelids, {{member}} can have difficulty seeing and can be irritated in areas where there is particulate matter or fog in the air. This does give {{gender:him,her}} nearly perfect vision underwater, however.

1.90 meters

Languages:

  • Basic
  • Utapese

Unique Species Feat: I Heard That

Like all Pau'an, {{member}} possesses hypersensitive hearing that affects all members of {{gender:his,her}} race. Without {{gender:his,her}} protective ear-disks, {{gender:he,she}} will be subjected to discomfort, pain and disorientation around loud noises. However, this does give {{member}} a unique ability to track sounds to their specific locations, giving them an almost preternatural sense of direction and tracking with conventional-level noises.

Unique Species Feat: Born To Lead

Pau'an society is centered around leadership and management. As a result of their integration with the labour cultures of Utapau, they are often exposed to leadership at a young age. {{member}} naturally gravitates towards leadership roles, and often has difficulty following the lead of those {{gender:he,she}} finds less experienced.

Unique Species Feat: Just Keep Swimming

Quarren can descend to great oceanic depths without apparatus, allowing them to adapt to extreme changes in pressure by decompressing {{gender:his,her}} body. {{member}} can also breathe indefinitely while underwater.

Quarren are a self-centered and proud species. Naturally, this makes {{member}} isolationist in behaviour and makes interaction with other species difficult. Because of this, {{gender:he,she}} will appear xenophobic and crude while interacting with members of another species.

Because of the natural drive present in all Khil, {{member}} is afraid of failure. {{gender:He,She}} is likely to be overwhelmed in situations where {{gender:he,she}} might risk failure.

Character sheet miraluka.png

Average Height:

1.8 meters

Languages:

  • Basic
  • Miralukese

Unique Species Feat: Behind Blue Eyes

Like all Miraluka, {{member}} was born without eyes that leave {{gender:him,her}} with a pair of hollowed sockets. Over time, however, the species has evolved to possess a unique way of 'seeing' through the Force. {{member}} can perceive the world around them in a blue-white spectrum by way of shapes, outlines and auras. This allows {{gender:him,her}} to live and exist seamlessly with the other sentient beings of the galaxy. {{member}} is still blind in the conventional sense and cannot read written text or discern intricate details like patterns or symbols. {{gender:He,She}} is still affected by ocular and mental Force Powers the same way any other sentient being is.

Unique Species Feat: Sharing Is Caring

Due to {{gender:his,her}} dependence on seeing through the Force, {{member}} is more attuned to the emotional state of {{gender:him,her}}self and of those around {{gender:him,her}}. {{member}} is more emotionally calm and deliberative. When surrounded by allies that are rallying or in a positive mood, {{gender:he,she}} will feel more positive; conversely, if {{gender:he,she}} is surrounded by pain or suffering, {{gender:he,she}} will share their anguish.

Neti

Neti

Notable Traits:

  • Bark-like skin
  • Shapeshifting
  • Photosynthesis
  • Sentient plants

Description:

The Neti were a species of shapeshifting sentient plants first encountered on the planet of Ryyk. Some called them Ryyk because of the planet's name.

Character sheet neti.png

Average Height:

3.5 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Natural Endurance

As a Neti, {{member}} does not sleep, eat or consume large amounts of water. {{gender:He,She}} has no biological need to rest and can thus push {{gender:him,her}}self through long working hours without signs of fatigue. However, this trait is directly related to the conditions and environment that {{gender:he,she}} is in. The more broad spectrum light that {{gender:he,she}} is exposed to, the longer {{gender:he,she}} can operate without meditation in tree-form. Without access to sunlight, the opposite is also true, as {{member}} will become exhausted and weak if deprived of sunlight for extremely long periods of time.

Unique Species Feat: Photosynthesis

Covered in bark-like skin, {{member}} is a sentient plant with the same needs as other species of flora. This not only makes {{member}} highly flammable, but also makes {{gender:him,her}} dependant on the environment and conditions that {{gender:he,she}} is in.

Noghri

Noghri

Notable Traits:

  • Steel gray skin
  • Black eyes
  • Hairless
  • Advanced olfactory abilities
  • Claws

Description:

Noghri were a primitive humanoid species. They had steely gray or blue skin, and were extremely skilled assassins due to their abilities in stealth and hand-to-hand combat. Despite their small size, they were efficient killing machines, with claws, fangs, and a sense of smell so acute that they could smell one's bloodline.

Character sheet noghri.png

Average Height:

1.4 to 1.7 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: The Blood Runs Deep

Noghri possess a sense of smell so attuned that members of this species can distinguish a person’s bloodline through scent alone. As a Noghri, {{member}} shares this talent with {{gender:his,her}} species and is able to tell a person’s bloodline through their olfactory senses.

Unique Species Feat: Nothing Goes Over My Head

As a clan-based society, humor is a foreign concept to the Noghri species. Even in {{gender:his,her}} most relaxed state, the meaning of most jokes are lost on {{member}}. Therefore, {{gender:he,she}} will often misinterpret jokes as serious insults, commands or just plain nonsense.

  • Blue skin
  • Bird-like appearance
  • Lithe
  • Fragile bodies
  • Heads covered in feathery threads

Description:

The Omwati were lithe Near-Humans with blue skin and a bird-like appearance. They were native to the planet Omwat and were known for their intellect and natural talent for science, engineering, and music. Omwati children had incredibly pliant minds that, with the proper training, could retain data and be educated beyond the threshold of most other sentient species.

Character sheet omwati.png

Average Height:

1.6 to 2.1 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Riddle Me This

{{member}} has an inherent penchant for solving puzzles and riddles. {{member}} can use {{gender:his,her}} Intellect skill at one skill level higher when presented with a problem that requires logic alone to figure out.

Unique Species Feat: Songbird

Sharing much of their physiology in common with birds, Omwati are lithe in appearance and unusually fragile. As a result, {{member}} possesses bones that are far more delicate than most species, making them less resiliant to trauma from weapons or impact.

Rattataki

Rattataki

Notable Traits:

  • White skin
  • Bald heads
  • Gladiatorial culture

Description:

The Rattataki were a Near-Human species characterized by their chalk-white skin and bald heads. Virtually isolated from the rest of the galaxy, the Rattataki developed a violent society on their home planet of Rattatak, which involved extensive gladiatorial combat.

Character sheet rattataki.png

Average Height:

Languages:

  • Basic
  • Rattataki

Unique Species Feat: Gladiator

Rattataki culture is one dominated by gladiatorial combat, displaying remarkable initiative and continually creating new ways for members of the species to kill each other. Because of this, {{member}} possesses an inherent drive to fight more fiercely and fearlessly when being observed by an audience.

Unique Species Feat: Blunt Instrument

Because Rattataki culture is focused around the need for violence and harsh conditions, {{member}} is ambitious and drawn towards dangerous undertakings, but has a tendency to bite off more than {{gender:he,she}} can chew. Nonetheless, {{gender:he,she}} is often unable to comprehend the level of danger that {{gender:he,she}} finds {{gender:him,her}}self in, which can lead to even greater peril.

  • Strong constitution
  • Dark hair
  • Dark eyes

Description:

Shaevalians are a humanoid subspecies that evolved from the Echani race.

Character sheet shaevalian.png

Average Height:

1.9-2.1 meters

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Tough Mudders’

Possessing a denser bone structure, Shaevalians are more resistant to physical pain than most species. Even with near-fatal injuries, {{member}} can ignore the worst of the pain to the point that {{gender:his,her}} physiology prevents {{gender:him,her}} from passing out during combat or intense interrogation. However, {{member}} will still feel the effects of fatigue from bodily harm as normal.

Unique Species Feat: Not Our Problem

Shaevalians don't tend to get involved in matters that don't pertain or advance their own goals as a superior species. As such, {{member}} has a hard time falling in line or subscribing to any motivational propaganda involving non-Shaevalian affairs such as war or conflict. This independence makes {{gender:his,her}} difficult for leaders to control, making {{member}} somewhat of a wildcard.

  • Faint pulses of light to signify sentient thought
  • Immobile without droid body
  • Patient and knowledgeable

Languages:

Unique Species Feat: Dances With Droids

Based on {{gender:his,her}} reliance on a droid body to serve as a host, {{member}} possesses intricate understanding of the inner workings and nuances of machinery, allowing {{gender:him,her}} the ability to communicate using the Binary language and use {{gender:his,her}} Mechanic skill at one skill point higher when modifying a piece of machinery.

Unique Species Feat: A Shard In Droid's Clothing

{{member}} is a sentient Shard that is immobile without some kind of droid body to serve as a host. The droid body is a bipedal humanoid, and functions just like an average organic being. Mobility and strength are direct reflections of {{member}}’s respective point level in each Skill. Strength in the Force is a direct reflection of {{members}}’s respective level in Force Powers. The droid bodies do not feature any special modifications beyond regular sight, hearing, or armament.

  • Long lives - avg. 500 years

Languages:

  • Basic
  • Shi’idese

Unique Species Feat: Humanoid Blend

When present among humanoids, {{member}} can blend to match the outer racial characteristics of that species, such as skin color, eye color, and hair color. Extreme changes such as increases in height or extra appendages can be created out of {{gender:his,her}} own body mass as well. These transformations require full concentration and significant time to occur. {{member}} needs to have a subject to mimic for the duration of the transformation.

Unique Species Feat: Who Am I?

Shi’ido, like most shapeshifters, are not trusted throughout the Galaxy. {{member}} often has a difficult time assimilating with other species of the Galaxy when in {{gender:his,her}} natural form. The reliance on assuming other sentient identities often leaves {{member}} to question {{gender:his,her}} own.

Zelosian

Zelosian

Notable Traits:

  • Chlorophyll instead of blood
  • Emerald green eyes
  • Blind in darkness

Description:

Zelosians were Near-Humans outwardly identical to Humans, but all had emerald green eyes and a type of chlorophyll sap instead of blood. Although well-known galaxy-wide as skilled horticulturists, few realized the Zelosians were not Humans.

Character sheet zelosian.png

Average Height:

Languages:

  • Basic
  • Zelosian

Unique Species Feat: Horticulturalist

Sharing some of their physiology with plant life, Zelosians have adapted a preference to sunlight. While these shared traits make {{member}} inherently skilled as a horticulturalist, {{gender:he,she}} is not accustomed to darkness. Thus, {{gender:he,she}} will remain blinded for the duration that {{gender:he,she}} lacks for sufficient lighting.

Unique Species Feat: Pour Some Sugar On Me

As a Zelosian, {{member}} bleeds chlorophyll sap instead of blood. As a result, {{gender:he,she}} will be unaffected through the consumption of alcohol. Instead, sugar carries a similar effect that alcohol has on Humans.
