Mirialans were a species of near-Humans[5] native to the planet Mirial. Their appearance varied from yellow-green skin to paler skin very similar to many Humans. Mirialans were very flexible and agile, making them fast and formidable foes.[6]

BiologyEdit

A near-Human species, Mirialans were nearly physiologically identical to Humans. The greatest difference in their biology was their green skin and their flexibility. The latter trait gave them the upper hand over Humans in terms of agility and the martial arts.[1]

Society and cultureEdit

The Mirialan people were deeply religious and practiced a primitive understanding of the Force. They believed each individual's actions contributed to their destiny, building upon past successes and failures to drive them towards their fates. A Mirialan would place a unique, often geometrically repeated tattoo on their face and hands to signify that they had completed a certain test or task, or achieved sufficient aptitude for a certain skill. The number of tattoos would thus often act as a good indicator of how mature and/or skilled a Mirialan was.[1]

Because the more markings brought about a form of status, Mirialan society was stratified and allowed the heavily marked citizens to access greater opportunities. Despite its importance, most Mirialans did not known the entirety of the tattoo lexicon due to its complexity. The interaction between placement and positioning of the shapes was incredibly subtle and changed the meaning greatly.[1] Because the Force was understood through the notion of the Cosmic Force on a basic level, the cultural significance of the energy was defined as fate. Those who were not sensitive to its call still had faith in fate, and felt that it guided their lives. Mirialans always had a presence within the ranks of the Jedi Order.[1]

HistoryEdit

At some point before the Invasion of Naboo, Mirial fought in a war against a nearby planet. The notorious pirate Arwen Cohl helped lead the Mirialans to victory.[7]

Mirialans in the galaxyEdit

Hylo Visz was a Mirialan smuggler during the days of the Old Republic who led a coalition of smugglers to break a Mandalorian blockade and deliver raw goods to Coruscant.[8]

Arwen Cohl was active as a Mirialan freedom fighter decades before the Clone Wars.[7] Luminara Unduli and her Padawan learner Barriss Offee were Mirialan Jedi who fought in the Clone Wars.[9] Teela Kaarz was a political prisoner who worked as a minor architect on the first Death Star.[10]

Behind the scenesEdit

Mirialans are a playable species in the Star Wars MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic for the Jedi Knight class[11], the Jedi Consular class[12], the Smuggler class[13], and the Trooper class.[14] Completing any of these storylines with a Mirialan character will unlock the race as an option for all other character classes; alternatively, the race can be unlocked through purchase in the Cartel Market.
