Home Planet: Cerea
Attribute Dice: 12D
Initiative Bonus: Cereans gain a +1D bonus to all initiative rolls.
Dual Hearts: Cereans can function with only one of these hearts, but the demands placed on their circulatory system by their binary brains are no laughing matter. A Cerean reduced to functioning on only one heart must sleep 2/3 of a given day to maintain his mental performance.
Size: up to 2.2 meters
Background: Cereans were a sophisticated and cultured humanoid mammalian species hailing from the planet Cerea in the Mid Rim. They were famed for their extraordinary thinking abilities, made possible by large binary brains housed in tall tapering heads, enabling them to focus on many things at the same time. Aside from this unique feature, Cereans were physically similar to Humans, although they each possessed two hearts, which supplied extra blood circulation to support their brains.
Cereans were often found among the ranks of the Jedi Knights, but due to the species’ low birth rates, Cerean Jedi were exempt from the Order’s vow of non-attachment. One such Jedi, Ki-Adi-Mundi, served on the Jedi High Council during and prior to the outbreak of the Clone Wars.
