Forums > Senate Hall archive > SH Archive/Human Twilek Hybrids?

I am one of the biggest Star Wars freaks out there and the topic of Humans and Twileks mating and actually having viable offspring is not one I have ever seen in any Star Wars media. So does anybody know if its possible? There are obvious references to many different sentient Star Wars species being attracted to Twilek females. Without getting too crude, I see this is also a bit of a inquiry into the tab a fits slot b question. Of course, nothing like that would ever be discussed in the PG to PG-13 world of Star Wars, but I just wonder if I have overlooked anything in terms of a Hulek(?) or Twiman(?) running around somewhere and sometime in the Star Wars galaxy? If this issue has not been brought up anywhere in the media yet I think it is high time somebody answered this question (even as a short side plot) in some book or something. Inquiring minds want to know.

  • I don't remember whether it was explicitly stated, but I think it was at least implied that Nawara Ven and Rhysati Ynr (a Twi'lek and a Human who are married) couldn't have biological children. Twi'leks are humanoid (ie externally similar to humans), but they're not Near-Human. Red XIV 04:27, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
    • Nawara Ven's page mentions they got married "to start a family", but that might be an error on the part of the article's author - Kwenn 13:52, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
      • "Nawara Ven and his wife, Rhysati Ynr-who

Corran had seen only occasionally since she resigned from the squadron to start a family with Nawara" - Isard's Revenge. Doesn't preclude adoption, obviously, but... Yrfeloran 13:56, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Nothing like that could even be discussed? Please. It can be, and it is. There is a list of sexual references in SW on one user subpage. - Sikon [Talk] 16:24, 15 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Gavin Darklighter says he and Asyr Sei'lar biologically could not have children and were starting to look at adopting in X-Wing: Isard's Revenge. -Finlayson 02:46, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
    • I always found Stackpole's fascination with interspecies pairings to be quite . . . odd. I mean, Asyr Sei'lar looks like a baboon, for Pete's sake! — SavageBob 13:31, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
      • There are several contradictory depictions of what Bothans are supposed to look like. I think Stackpole prefers the most humanoid version. DarthLumiya 13:37, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
        • Well, Stackpole gave Corran a Selonian fetish, so I'm not so sure we should assume that. ;-) jSarek 08:15, 18 May 2006 (UTC)
          • I always assumed Stackpole did that to make a comparison between interracial dating in our universe and interspecies dating in our universe. Particularly since the people doing it were Rogue Squadron, who were in opposition to the discriminatory Empire. Stackpole's practice just didn't catch on with other EU authors. Also, if I'm not incorrect, for Stackpole and Zahn (two of the earliest SW novelists), weren't the Bothans more cat-like and less camel-like? He also created the hybrid character Zekka Thyne, which illustrates that in least some cases Stackpole believed humans and aliens could conceive children. - Breathesgelatin 09:52, 18 May 2006 (UTC)
            • Yeah, the West End Games Bothans were similar to the baboon-faced ones, but their snouts were flatter, more like a gorilla face. Think Planet of the Apes. Still, that is not a phenotype that the average human should be attracted to. I understand the themes Stackpole was exploring regarding discrimination and prejudice, but people having, er, relations with baboon-people and otter-people is just weird. Back on topic, Shug Ninx is also a hybrid of human/something else. As for Human/Twi'lek, it doesn't exist in the universe yet, so it's best we not comment on it one way or another in any articles. — SavageBob 12:31, 18 May 2006 (UTC)
