Home Planet: Theelin
Attribute Dice: 12D
Genetic Mutation: The Theelin Species is dying out due to a genetic mutation. The species was expected to go extinct around 10 ABY (1010 GC)
Dying People: Theelin population was dying out rapidly and few will remain after 10 ABY (1010 GC)
Size: 1.7 meters tall
Background: A rare sentient species, Theelin had three horns on either side of their face, hooved feet, brightly colored hair, and spotted, mottled skin. They were able to interbreed with humans to create a hybrid.
Theelin often had artistic personalities, and many chose to become artists or performers, while a “Miss Theelin” beauty pageant was available for entry by female members of the species. A colonial species, they had migrated and adapted to dominate many worlds.
Unfortunately for the Theelin, a series of mutations arose among their species during the last years of the Galactic Republic. These mutations led to genetic incompatibilities within their species, making it impossible to produce offspring. Even attempts to continue their species by cross-breeding with Humans and other Near-Humans could not stop the Theelin slide towards extinction, due to the high infant mortality rates such couplings suffered from. They inevitably dwindled in number—only a few million Theelin and part-Theelin remained by the time the Republic fell, and pure Theelin were presumed extinct by 10 ABY. Some of their greatest works were produced in these years, however, as an epitaph for a dying people.
