Biology and appearanceEdit
The Sylphes were a botanical, humanoid species. Their skin was green, and they had flowers in place of hair. These flowers changed with their emotions, wilting with a bad mood. Their metabolism needed high quantities of water, and an extended exposition to an arid climate could be lethal.
The Sylphes were able to interbreed with Humans, despite having a internal structure closer to vegetation than human. A Human/Sylphe hybrid could be detected by an abnormal blood composition, and had a lifetime superior to a human, similar to that of a Sylphe.
Society and cultureEdit
Living in homes made from vegetation, the Sylphes were a sophisticated and instructed species. They would often cultivate refined arts, and their martial arts were no exception. They developed the Sholân Kha, a lethal "war dance." They favored the mental over the technological, and their technological development was quite low.
At the time of their discovery, the Sylphes were organized in clans, where the solidarity was extreme.
The Sylphes were discovered by the Galactic Republic bewteen 1189 BBY and 1140 BBY., before the Golden Age of the Old Republic An exploration team, led by Andrew Woolfson, was sent in the Sylenia V system to search suitable planets for colonization, and they found four of them. On Sylvia IV, they encountered the Sylphes, and quickly a good cooperation was set up.
The Galactic Republic was authorized to install three bases on the planet, and the Sylphes entered into the federation of the Republic planets, providing a brigade for its military effort. The Azul brigade was composed of Sylphe and Human soldiers and was known for being one of the elite units of the Republic.
During the Galactic Civil War, Sylphes were present on Sainte-Evanëflore and governed by Jonciane, Lord of the Foliage. His daughter was eager to fight the Galactic Empire and did not support the passive, pacifist way of her species.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Sylphes later appeared again in another ambiguously canon roleplaying game help which appeared in June 1996, the French magazine Casus Belli 95, which was written by Patrick Bousquet and Christophe Debien. The species was illustrated by Thierry Ségur in the later source.
Although the authors and publications are different, the data isn't mutually exclusive. For this reason, this article assumes that it is the same species.

The given dates for this "Golden Age" are 2487-2621 from an unknown calendar, and the discovery of the Sylphe happened between 2298 and 2347. Since there is an official "Golden Age era" which started in 1000 BBY, this article assumes that "2487" corresponds to 1000 BBY.
