Mirialan Species in Star Wars: Shards | World Anvil


The original Mirialan species as seen here is the inspiration for this version of the Mirialan.
Mirialans are a species of near-Humans that are from the planet Mirial in the system of the same name in the Outer Rim.   The general rumor of the Mirialan culture is that they are tribal primitives. This is only a rumor, as the Mirialan people are no stranger to technology after generations of exposure to the galaxy from the time of the Jedi Civil War in the early years of the Old Republic.

Basic Information


Anatomically this species is nearly identical to humans. The only major difference being skin pigmentation and higher tolerance to radiation.

Biological Traits

Mirialan's natural flexibility gives them an edge in physical dexterity over many other races. Likewise, the cold, harsh condition of their thin magnetosphere world has given them a higher tolerance to low levels of radiation.

Additional Information

Facial characteristics

Mirialan facial features are identical to humans aside from skin and eye coloration. Their eye color s are blue, green, violet, gray, red or yellow. Hair color tends toward brown or black, but red or blonde is not uncommon.

Civilization and Culture

Common Customs, Traditions and Rituals

The most common tradition for Mirialans is their tattoos. Geometric designs, interlaced knotwork, and more can be found on many of the species.   Use of these tattoos come from their cultural belief in the "Cosmic Force" that unified all energy and life together in one universal web of life.   A person's deeds - both success and failure - collectively made up the whole of that person's energy within this living web of life. To the Mirialans it was the tapestry of who a person was.   Representing this, Mirialans would get complex tattoos that represented their achievements. Many have facial tattoos but many more have tattoos that spread across a Mirialan's torso. Each tattoo told the story of that person's deeds, their accomplishment in a skill, and so on.   For a Mirialan to refuse to get a tattoo is the highest insult among their culture.
