As we continue to try and provide new content every day I wanted to carry on with our Star Wars theme, so I present species traits for the Sluissi, a snake-like reptilian species of engineers from the Outer Rim. I stumbled onto an entry on them while reading through some of my Star Wars books and I thought it odd that we don’t seem them cropping up more. They certainly aren’t major agitators of the history books but they were early members of the Old Republic, a party to the Clone Wars, and at least one of them has served as Jedi. Plus they’re some of the best starship engineers in the galaxy. I used Saga Edition again for this because as I said before it is my favorite. I hope some of you find a used for this, or at least think it is interesting.
Reptilian humanoids native to the Outer Rim the Sluissi have been prominent members of the galactic community since. By the time Duros and Human scouts discovered their homeworld they were already exploring other systems with lightspeed technology. They eagerly joined the Old Republic and remained active within the organization, eventually they sided with the Separatists during The Clone Wars.
