Playable Species of SW:TOR Miraluka

The Miraluka were a Near-Human,Force-Sensetive species. Their language was Miralukese, although some, like Visas Marr, preferred Basic. They differed from Humans in that they lacked pupils or irises, instead bearing only vestigial white orbs (or in some cases, such as Visas Marr, empty sockets), and perceived the environment around them through the Force instead of regular vision. This vision was so strong that if a Miralukan looked upon a Jedi or Sith they could “see” the Force radiation off them. For moral reasons, Miraluka hid the appearance of their eyes by wearing a headband, a mask, or similar concealing headwear. As a Force-using species, Miraluka were often quite shocked if shown life not connected to the Force.

The Miraluka that lived on Katarr were strong enough that even they felt the Battle of Malachor, though it is possible that they felt not only that battle.


History
Their adopted homeworld was Alpheridies, a planet the Miraluka migrated to when their original homeworld became uninhabitable. A colony world of the Miraluka named Katarr was stripped of all life by Sith Lord Darth Nihilus in approximately 3,952 BBY, during a Jedi convocation.

Society and culture
Miraluka were a thoughtful, cautious, and deliberative species. They had little interest in personal gain or glory. For social reasons, Miraluka hid their appearance by wearing a headband, a mask, or similar concealing headwear. As a Force-using species, Miraluka were often quite shocked if shown life not connected to the Force. The Miraluka that lived on Katarr were strong enough that even they felt the Battle of Malachor, though it is possible that they felt not only that battle.

Miraluka in the galaxy
Because of their connection to the Force, many Miraluka have been drawn to the Jedi Order. Miraluka Jedi fought in the Sith War, and helped shape the Jedi Order for centuries to come. In the waning days of the Old Republic, there were not only many Miraluka Jedi, but many Miraluka, unsuited to becoming full-fledged Jedi, who served the Order as teachers and administrators. Miraluka Sith were seemingly rare, as the species’ own outlooks on life and the Force are largely incompatible with Sith teachings. However, as with all who feel the Force, a fall to darkness is possible with the Miraluka just as it is with any other.
