"The Chiss ladies will shoot whatever is closest . . ."
―Johhar Kessen[src]

The Chiss were a blue-skinned, humanoid sentient species that possessed red eyes and dark blue hair.[1]

One Chiss, Grand Admiral Thrawn, was part of the Imperial efforts to combat the early rebellion in the years prior to the Battle of Yavin.[2]

Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Senator Johhar Kessen acquired the services of several female Chiss mercenaries.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Chiss species first appeared, albeit unidentified, in Heir to the Empire, a 1991 Star Wars Legends novel written by Timothy Zahn as the first entry in The Thrawn Trilogy.[3] The species' name would later be revealed in Vision of the Future, a 1998 Legends novel also written by Zahn as the second and final entry in the The Hand of Thrawn Duology.[4] The Chiss became canon when they appeared in Secret Alliances, the sixth campaign featured in Star Wars: Commander, a mobile game published by Disney Interactive[1] that was released on August 21, 2014.[5]

Though it was ultimately decided that he would be a human, a preliminary design of Agent Kallus, one of the antagonists of the canon animated television series Star Wars Rebels, depicted him as a member of the Chiss species.[6] Eventually, the Chiss would appear in the series, in the form of Grand Admiral Thrawn.[2]
