|Kallidahin (Polis Massan)|
|Height of average adult||
- "Medically, she is completely healthy. For reasons we can't explain, we are losing her."
- ―A Kallidahin-owned GH-7 medical droid makes a spoken report.
The Kallidahin, also known as Polis Massans, were a race of sentient cetaceans native to the world of Kallidah, having obtained their misleading name due to their extensive century-spanning digs on their adopted home in Polis Massa. The Kallidahin lacked facial features and were commonly mute, resorting to signs and telepathy to communicate. Though they had little contact with other species and were considered hermetic, Kallidahin were known for their extraordinary medical, archaeological and xenobiological skills, and were regarded as compassionate beings who understand the value of life. They were also known for their massive database about xenobiology.
The Kallidahin were mainly concerned with their excavation in Polis Massa, where they were secretly trying to find proof of any relationship between their own species and the original inhabitants of Polis Massa, the extinct Eellayin. Although they did little to contact the wider galaxy beyond their business with the similarly secretive Kaminoans, they tried to be kind to any visitors. The Kallidahin helped Jedi Masters Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi several times, including trying to save the life of their ally Padmé Amidala and taking care of the last stages of her pregnancy. In later years, the Alliance to Restore the Republic built an outpost in Polis Massa that was eventually raided by the Galactic Empire, but the Kallidahin were unmolested during this time.
Biology and appearance
- "I was just on my way to summon Osh Scal. He's our Polis Massan supply officer—the Inquisitor wants to question him since he's one of the few Polis Massans able to speak."
- ―Maneeli Tuun, of the minority Kallidahin with voice.
The average Kallidahin was a short, thin being unable to walk as fast a Human would or, on average, to compare to a Human's strength. They had skinny, sinewy bodies surrounded by growth rings. During the Old Republic era, xenobiologists could not identify the evolutionary reason that led the species to develop this tree-like trait. Their bodies were covered by soft gray skin that, being thick, smooth and partially insulating, pointed to their aquatic, cetacean ancestors.
A Kallidahin had a flat, pale face, covered by an osmotic membrane that left them featureless. The only facial feature was a pair of black eyes. Those deep-focus visual organs were useful for work deep underground and for research in the field of medicine, but they lacked any expressiveness. The head was connected with the body through a long, thin neck. Kallidahins had thin arms ending in nimble gray hands, each with four long, dexterous fingers including an opposable thumb.
Most Kallidahin were mute due to a natural lack of vocal cords. Their language, known as Massan, combined sign language, computers, and the use of their mildly telepathic brains. Their telepathy was not related to the thought-transmission used by adepts of the Force, although it worked similarly when broadcasting thoughts and simple feelings to willing receivers in a fifteen-meter area. The Massan language has been described falling beyond the Human auditive spectrum when used in its purest form. Some Kallidahin had a natural difference allowing them to speak audible languages such as Galactic Basic Standard.
Society and culture
- "There are certain tests we do on newborns. Of course we erased all the records and the memory of the droids, but we didn't erase all supply records. When our stocks are low, we do refill orders."
- ―Maneeli Tuun, meticulous professional.
The Kallidahin had galactic-wide fame because of their compassion and kindness, while their also characteristic discretion was not as widely known. They held a great value to freedom and life in any form and had such a peaceful nature and respect towards life that only rarely they would follow a soldier's career. They were not aggresive and rejected direct confrontations even when the greater goals of the species were at risk, but they were nevertheless able to protect themselves and their culture should the need arose.
An analytical species, the Kallidahin felt an overwhelming desire to gain data about alien species. This information fascinated them, particularly when related to the origins of their own species. The Kallidahin were gifted xenobiologists but, not being the greatest experts in diplomacy, preferred study from afar instead of mixing directly with the object of interest.
Many of the Kallidahin were miners or speleologists, and wore form-fitting bodysuits fitted with all manner of signaling devices, medical equipment and utility pouches. The majority of Kallidahin miners were seasoned spelunkers, and dug deep into the core of the asteroid field of Polis Massa to locate prize artifacts. The Kallidahin were committed and enthusiastic workers who commonly enjoyed a full day of work in the core of an asteroid field.
- "Oobah, oobah."
- ―Recorded utterance in Kallidahin-designed midwife droid.
Although most of the galaxy believed the Kallidahin to be the original inhabitants of the planetoid Polis Massa, the species had actually evolved on a different world known as Kallidah, in the Subterrel sector.
The planet Polis Massa, in the more isolated limits of the Outer Rim Territories, was instead the original home of a subterranean civilization known as the Eellayin Many centuries before the battle of Yavin, Polis Massa exploded due to a natural disaster whose cause would remain unknown in further years. The native Eellayin mysteriously vanished afterwards and the Kallidahin and the Republic subsequently considered the Eeyallin to be extinct. The planet became an asteroid field, with the biggest asteroid being renamed Polis Massa.
Given Kallidahin reticence, few details were known of their past before the sixth century BBY. At some point in the past, the Kallidahin made a deal with another species, the secretive clone-masters known as Kaminoans. In exchange for certain xenobiological data in the Kallidahin archives, the Kaminoans agreed to teach the Kallidahin their cloning techniques. Although the Kallidahin were neither as elaborate or advanced in cloning as their instructors, they nevertheless learnt to use cloning for medical purposes and employed the technology in attempts to re-build biological matter they had found in archaeological digs. The Kallidahin believed themselves to be descendants of the ancient Eellayin species once native to Polis Massa, although they kept this conviction in secret. In the sixth century BBY, the Archaeological Research Council decided to establish a Research Base on the largest of the asteroid remnants of the Polis Massa system, by-then known as Polis Massa, to unearth evidence of this evolutionary link.
Circa 519 BBY, the entire population of Kallidah left their homeworld to mine at Polis Massa. They travelled to the biggest asteroids in the system to start looking for clues. The main objective of the species in successive years would be discovering their real connection with the Eellayin. The Kallidahin organized their new life in Polis Massa, centered around an archaeological dig that would be surrounded by a mining colony. As the asteroids lacked a natural atmosphere and the Kallidahin were oxygen-breathers, they resorted to airtight buildings. They built their new capital, Polis Massa Base, and organized imports of food, water and machinery, even if the system had no real exports. They also built, in one of the closed habitats, a high-quality medical center mostly equipped for the physiological needs of Kallidahin patients. Although their civilization officially covered the whole asteroid field, only the biggest asteroids had a settled population.
In later centuries, the Kallidahin found many artifacts and remains of the Eellayin, although real proofs of the relation, commonly coming from the depths of the Polis Massa asteroid, were scarce. The species had trouble with treasure hunters wanting to plunder their digs, and with the raising piracy in the Outer Rim Territories. The Kallidahin were quiet in their work to avoid attracting any undesired attention and refused to get involved with the rest of the galaxy, but nevertheless they kept their politeness when dealing with aliens.
When their initial research began to take dozens of decades, the Kallidahin chose to remain in Polis Massa and continue their task for as long as needed; soon, they had been away from Kallidah for so long that the species had no living memories of their own origin. At that point, aliens in the galaxy began calling the Kallidahin with the name of Polis Massans because they had been living in Polis Massa for centuries. The Kallidahin humbly accepted their new name, feeling honored and with no objection.
At some point during their research, the Kallidahin found the remains of Wiyentaah, an Eellayin city, and built an excavation, The Local Dig, over it, to carefully unbury the metropolis little by little. As many of the newly found artifacts were fragile, they were kept in sterile, well-kept rooms.
Other cultures began to speculate about the real connection between the Kallidahin and the Eellayin, but the Kallidahin were silent in that respect. As the Kallidahin were always anxious to learn about xenobiology, many other species believed that this traditional Kallidahin drive was the real motivation of the Kallidahin. The Kallidahin said they wanted to preserve the memory of the lost Eellayin, but certain outsiders believed they really wanted to resurrect their ancestors using their cloning technology. The Kallidahin had previously cloned extinct lifeforms in other places. Following this theory, the Kallidahin had not succeeded in that because they had not found adequate genetic material.
The Kallidahin also began building droids through a company known as Polis Massa Pria Assemblage. They mostly manufactured machines for their own use instead of exporting them, mainly archaeological droids and miner droids; but they also needed help in skills beyond xenobiology, like obstetrics. Apparently to that end, they built the Chroon-Tan B-Machine, which had a Kallidahin-inspired face.
Another alien who had had contact with the Kallidahin was Yoda, a renowned Jedi master. Yoda had dealt with the Kallidahin Maneeli Tuun, operational head of the medical center and firm supporter of the Galactic Republic.
- "Into exile, I must go. Failed, I have."
In 19 BBY, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine ordered to execute all the members of the Jedi Order. Yoda fought Palpatine in Coruscant and, unable to defeat him, escaped the Core Worlds with his ally Bail Organa. Yoda initially choose Polis Massa, partly because it was a remote place, adequate for a fugitive to hide and partly because he knew he could count on Tuun.
Meanwhile in the Outer Rim, Yoda's ally Obi-Wan Kenobi defeated, but not killed, Palpatine's apprentice Darth Vader; however, in the process Vader's pregnant wife, Padmé Amidala, was severely injured. Kenobi contacted Yoda and then piloted Amidala's Naboo star skiff to Polis Massa with the droids C-3PO and R2-D2.
For their own reasons, Kenobi and Yoda wanted to keep the birth of Amidala's child in secret. The remoteness of Polis Massa, combined with the traditional discretion of the Kallidahin, Yoda's trust in Tuun, and Amidala's critical condition (that made the birth unlikely) led the Jedi to request help from the Kallidahin for the delivery.
However, the available Kallidahin were mostly members of an archaelogical dig team, with only two of them being seasoned physicians; the others were exobiologists. The Kallidahin who treated her were Maneeli Tuun, operational head of the medical center, Dznori Xam and Selif Xam, with the added presence of supply officer Osh Scal. Amidala's condition was so severe that they had no time to look for more prepared doctors. The doctors even had to operate in their mining bodysuits, not having a minute to change clothes.
Recognizing their unfamiliarity with Human parturition, the Kallidahin consulted their databank and resorted to an advanced Chiewab Amalgamated GH-7 medical diagnosis droid, of which they had several units, to deal with Amidala's injuries; and a seldom-used Chroon-Tan B-Machine to help with the childbearing.
Although Amidala had twins, Luke and Leia, she had lost any will to live and slowly refused to recover. The Kallidahins and the droid did everything in her power to save her life, but failed. R2-D2 secretly recorded all the events with his holocam.
Still wanting to keep the birth a secret, the Jedi decided to simulate that Amidala was still pregnant when she had died. The discrete Kallidahin agreed to keep the secret, even if they probably did not understand the galaxy-wide importance of it. Kenobi and Yoda asked the Kallidahin to erase any record of the birth, including a memory wipe of the used medical droids. However, the Kallidahin doctors had performed safety tests to the newborns, consuming several supplies, and the supply record was forgotten during the deletion. The Jedi and Organa left soon afterwards, heading to Naboo to bury Amidala.
The Imperial Inquisition
- "Now I must ask you something else. I'm afraid that Malorum is looking into Polis Massa. It's best if you don't know why. I managed to deflect the inquiry for a time, but I don't know what Malorum knows or what he's planning to do next. The answers to those questions can endanger every Jedi — and the fledgling resistance."
- ―Obi-Wan Kenobi, to Ferus Olin.
Soon afterwards, the by-then Emperor Palpatine set up a group of special Intelligence agents known as the Inquisitorius, which included former Intelligence agent Malorum, who had been put in charge of the planet Bellassa. A source informed Malorum about the burial of Amidala, telling him that a Jedi had taken the corpse from Polis Massa to Naboo. Malorum thought that he could use this information as a lever against his rival Darth Vader if he could discover more details.
Malorum hired Boba Fett, a teenaged bounty hunter, to examine the medical records of the Polis Massa clinic and also Naboo. Never giving his own name, Fett visited Polis Massa as an Imperial investigator, copied all the files and took them to Malorum. Thanks to the precautions taken after the birth, those documents were useless to Malorum.
Meanwhile, Obi-Wan Kenobi had exiled himself to the planet Tatooine. Kenobi discovered that Ferus Olin, a former Padawan learner he thought would have been killed during the Order 66, was alive and active on Bellassa. Kenobi decided to go to Bellassa and find Olin, knowing that the Force would guide him to an important connection with Kenobi's own mission. Indeed, Kenobi met with Olin and both of them sneaked into Malorum's office, where Olin discovered that Malorum was interested in Polis Massa. Kenobi needed to go back to Tatooine, but he could not allow Malorum to discover what had really happened in Polis Massa. Kenobi and Olin eventually left Bellassa while pursued by Malorum's agents, and so Kenobi could not return to Tatooine immediately.
Having reprimanded Fett for his failure on Polis Massa, Malorum dispatched a new agent, an Inquisitor by the name of Sancor, who was an expert in record security. The personal interest of the Inquisitorious might have led the Kallidahin to suspect that the birth was more important than they had previously thought. Sancor dealt with Tuun and searched the memory banks of all the medical droids, including the droids that were not in the medical center during that moment. Sancor later asked Tuun for the supply records and the presence of supply officer Osh Scal, another of the Kallidahin who had assisted in the childbirth. As Schal was among the few Kallidahin with audible voice, Sancor could question him personally.
Fortunately for Tuun, Obi-Wan Kenobi visited Polis Massa just at that moment; Kenobi was following his instincts by going there while Olin and his friend Trever Flume were on a different quest in Ilum. Kenobi intercepted Tuun before the Inquisitor could find Schal and the Jedi asked Schal to forge the records Sancor was analyzing, giving him a more important, although fictional, fugitive to track. Kenobi also disguised himself as a Kallidahin and met with Sancor, pretending to be Scal; during the questioning, Kenobi tried to misdirect the Inquisitor.
However, Sancor saw a graphic depiction of the real Scal in the records and noticed that Kenobi did not look like him. Sancor attacked Kenobi and Tuun, but Kenobi scared him by activating his lightsaber. Sancor tried to escape from the system to report to Malorum. Kenobi and him struggled, and Sancor was killed. In order to cover Kenobi's tracks, Tuun then sent a message to Malorum, describing the "accidental" death of his envoy who fell from an observation platform and landed on sharp chirurgical tools.
Kenobi had to leave the asteroid soon afterwards. He met with Olin and asked the former Padawan to take care of Malorum. Kenobi did not tell Olin about the birth of the Skywalker twins, but specifically asked Olin to not allow Malorum to discover whatever had happened in Polis Massa.
Malorum met with Darth Vader soon afterwards and mentioned that he was researching events in the planetoid Polis Massa. Darth Vader forcefully requested Malorum to forget any work in that direction. Olin, who was secretly eavesdropping on the conversation, was sure that Malorum would continue probing Polis Massa. At that point, Malorum secretly knew that Vader had been Anakin Skywalker and the husband of Padmé Amidala; he also suspected that Amidala had been operated in Polis Massa, even if he could find no proof of it.
Malorum personally visited Polis Massa soon after this event; however, even he was unable to find anything there. He then tried his luck on Naboo, and discovered that Amidala had not been pregnant when she was buried. However, before Malorum could do anything with this information, he found and dueled Olin. Malorum died in that battle; the truth about the birth in Polis Massa remaining a secret.
Galactic Civil War
- "By the time of the raid in Polis Massa, the men of the 501st were starting to get sick of the so-called Rebellion. These Rebels were different. They were organized, they were growing and they were everywhere."
- ―Diary of the 501st.
During the first days of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, a movement that started in 2 BBY, the Rebel command mounted a secret base on Polis Massa. The base was crewed by beings of different species, including Human troopers, Wookiee archers and Bothan spies; and they were equipped with FX-series medical assistant droids and AAC-1 hovertanks. The Alliance launched many operations from their Polis Massan base, although the Rebel Alliance did their best not to disturb the nearby Kallidahin excavations. The Empire raided this base repeatedly but the base survived these attacks.
In 0 BBY, the Polis Massan Rebel base received an important transmission from other Rebels: the plans of the Empire's new armored battle station. Knowing that the transmission had been made, Darth Vader ordered his agents of the 501st Legion to recover the plans and destroy the Rebel outpost. The Bothan spies, knowing that the Empire would have tracked the transmission, secretly forwarded the plans to another Rebel outpost, the Tantive IV starship, and prepared a forgery to trick the Imperial forces as much as they could. The Empire discovered the deception during the attack, but was slow in issuing new orders to the 501st. Eventually, the 501st obliterated the Rebel presence on Polis Massa and found a new trail to follow. During all these conflicts, the digs of the Kallidahin were untouched.
During the Yuuzhan Vong War (25-29 ABY), the Yuuzhan Vong invaders found no reason to raid Polis Massa: it was too remote and held no strategic value or important resources that they could use. The later Dark Nest Crisis of 36 ABY was similarly clement with the Kallidahin. During this campaign, however, R2-D2 showed his holorecording of Polis Massa to by-then adult Luke Skywalker, his wife Mara Jade Skywalker and his nephew Jacen Solo, along with other files of Padmé Amidala's later days. By then, Jade was suspected to have murdered her husband's mother, and the droid's files served to clear her name.
Kallidahin in the galaxy
- "Well, whattaya know... I ain't seen one of these since I was prospecting on Subterrel beyond the Outer Rim!"
- ―Dexter Jettster referring to his encounter with the Kallidahin.
Perceived by others as silent and weird, Kallidahin were considered among the most mysterious species in the galaxy. The mute, faceless Kallidahin were not social creatures in the way Humans could be. The Kallidahin themselves limited their contact with other species as a way to protect their work. The Kallidahin had a massive database with xenobiological information about many alien species, but nevertheless the Kallidahin themselves had little contact with other cultures. Probably the most exhaustive contact the Kallidahin had with another species was with the Eellayin, an extinct people whose memory they tried to preserve in their digs.
The Kallidahin, commonly restricted to the Polis Massa system, rarely encountered any other sentients beyond the pirates and treasure hunters who wanted to profit from the Kallidahin's hard work. The Kallidahin had dealt with the similarly reclusive Kaminoans in the past, obtaining important technology in exchange for their data on xenobiology, but the Kallidahin would rather be secretive about the results of their work.
Sometimes, the Kallidahin went beyond the borders of the Polis Massa system, commonly for exobiological reasons, but in that case they did not go too far. Soon before the Clone Wars, Kallidahin exobiologists were sent to a different planet in the Subterrel sector to perform research. The local fauna included fierce predators, but the Kallidahin managed to keep them at bay using Kamino saberdarts they had obtain in their deals with the Kaminoans. Another traveler to the planet, a Besalisk known as Dexter Jettster, witnessed the use of the saberdarts and was impressed with them.
Although their personality and telepathic abilities could have given them excellent careers in the Jedi Order, or in certain criminal activities, there were no known precedents of Kallidahin Jedi or rogues.
Some Kallidahin, including Maneeli Tuun, supported the Galactic Republic following their firm beliefs, but they remained mostly beyond the reach of the Republic's judicial arm. Jedi Master Yoda, and later Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, were known to have trusted this Kallidahin of firm ideals.
Behind the scenes
- "For a while, we weren't sure if the face design was supposed to be a mask, but George eventually made it clear that it was the face and that there were no markings or other features than the eyes. It would be skin."
- ―Robert E. Barnes, concept sculptor for the Prequel Trilogy.
The Polis Massans first appeared in the novelization of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005), and then in the movie and most of the adaptations (junior novel, illustrated screenplay, LEGO video game). They are notably absent in the comic-book adaptation, in which Padmé Amidala is operated only by droids. Opposed to this, in the video game LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga, Amidala is treated only by a Kallidahin, with no visible droids.
The first conceptual art for these beings was drawn by illustrator Doug Chiang for Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Following concept sculptor Robert E. Barnes's memories of the event, director George Lucas provided Chiang with a monochrome photograph of a mask without any facial features except circled eyes. This appearance was considered for the Kaminoan alien species, but finally the design was rejected in favor of another depiction that was considered more elegant.
Chiang's design went unused in Attack of the Clones; however, it was later recovered for the following movie. After other early sketches for the species had been drawn by Stian Dahlslett and Sang Jun Lee, an approximate idea for the species's outiline was reached. Michael Patrick Murnane perfected Chiang's original designs and then sculpted busts of the faceless aliens; when the statues received Lucas's approval, Murnane and Jun worked together in a full-body model. Murnane compared the result to creatures in Hayao Miyazaki's animated movie Princess Mononoke. For the skin, a dolphin-like texture was used. Finally, the movie featured computer-generated Polis Massans (the name "Kallidahin" had not been assigned yet) in a scene with a computer-generated medical droid.
The novel The Last of the Jedi: Dark Warning (2005), by Jude Watson, described Kallidahin Maneeli Tuun as a particularly expressive person for someone who lacked facial features as seen in the movie. In chapter 9, Tuun "looked thin and worried (...) a look of startled pleasure came over his face but then was replaced by the same frown." Later, his "troubled expression cleared," he "ran his hands along his cheeks and blew out a tired breath" and even he "gave a small smile." It is unclear how he can frown, blow out or smile without a brow or a mouth, as the descriptions are apparently not metaphorical.
The following section describes the appearance of Kallidahin in official, albeit non-canonical, stories. The non-canonicity of the story Old Wounds, published in Star Wars: Visionaries (2005), is discussed in its own article and Darth Maul's Behind the Scenes, as several other sources seem to reference it, but the whole story was confirmed as non-canon by Leland Chee soon after the publication.
The plot followed Darth Maul after having been defeated by Obi-Wan Kenobi on Naboo in 32 BBY. Through unexplained means, Maul had survived and became a cyborg, and in 15 BBY Maul was tracking Kenobi, driven by revenge. Maul followed Kenobi's trail from Mustafar to Polis Massa, where he killed at least two mute Kallidahin in what he deemed an unsatisfactory carnage. Later, Maul checked the Kallidahin's medlog and somehow learned that Kenobi was on Tatooine. Maul then left Polis Massa and continued with his chase.
Darth Maul also appears as a "hero character" in the Polis Massa level of Star Wars: Battlefront II, but not as a part of the story: The Sith only appears if the player uses a trick to activate an "Easter egg."
