"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. 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.[2] 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.[3] 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.[4]

Though it was ultimately decided that he would be a human, a preliminary design of Agent Kallus, one of the primary antagonist of the animated television series Star Wars Rebels, depicted him as a Chiss.[5]
