"A warrior reportedly of a race known as the Chiss."
Parck, speaking of Thrawn[src]

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

During the Age of the Empire, the Chiss known as Thrawn became an officer of the Galactic Empire. Attaining the rank of Grand Admiral, he participated in the Imperial Military's 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]
