Human Species in Star Wars: Shards | World Anvil


Content on species is adapted from wookiepedia (for the description), ( for the d6 stats ) and modified for use here.
Humans are the galaxy’s most numerous and politically dominant sentient species with millions of major and minor colonies galaxy-wide Believed to have originated on the galactic capital of Coruscant, they can be found anywhere, engaged in many different pursuits: spacers, mercenaries, smugglers, merchants, soldiers, assassins, farmers, crime lords, laborers, slaves, slavers, and many others, including Jedi. Since Humans are the most common sentient species, they are often considered to be a standard or average to which the biology, psychology, and culture of other species are compared.

Basic Information


Like most of the galaxy’s sentient species, Humans have a torso, two legs, two arms, and one head. Other sentient species with a body type roughly similar to Humans were often referred to as humanoid, since Humans are the most common example. Their heads had two eyes, one nose for breathing and smelling, and a mouth for eating, breathing and communicating. Human arms have five-fingered hands for manipulation, mirrored by their legs’ five-toed feet. Also, like most species, they came in two sexes, male and female.

Biological Traits

Unlike other mammalian species (such as Wookiees or Ewoks), they have only a light covering of body hair, with males being hairier than females. Most of their body hair was concentrated on the head and (in the case of adult males) face. This hair was grown, cut, and styled for aesthetic or ritualistic reasons (as with the elaborate hairstyles of the Royal Naboo and the traditional braids of Human Jedi Padawans.) Older Human males often demonstrated loss of the hair on their head. The facial hair grown by adult males could be grown, styled, or shaved completely.
Despite overall physiological uniformity, baseline Humans varied greatly in appearance. Their hair color ranges from blond to dark, sometimes with hues of red or brown, changing to gray or white as years passed. Their hair could be straight, wavy, or curly. Their eyes come in shades of blue, green, gray, or brown.
Gradation of skin tone is also seen among baseline Humans, usually limited to various shades of brown, ranging from pale yellowish brown, to light brown, and dark brown.
