History

The Kwa were an ancient civilization that were a dominant galactic power hundreds of thousands of years before the Galactic Republic. They used Infinity Gates as a weapon and as a means of interstellar travel.

Kwa were bipedal, three-meter tall, cobalt-blue-skinned saurians with telepathic abilities. They also had the ability to run at incredible speeds.

When their empire was at its height, about 100,000 BBY, they encountered the Gree Empire, leading to border disputes between them.

The species later began to lose their influence on galactic politics. They sealed the Infinity Gates and Star Temples, and they set guardians to protect the Temples—giant wuffa worms with thick hides and an impressive turn of speed. Though it is unknown what happened to the rest of the Kwa around the galaxy, the original settlers of Dathomir eventually evolved—or rather degenerated—into the Kwi.

Millennia later, many of the Kwa's descendants were slaughtered by the Nightsisters when the witches discovered the Gate. The surviving Kwi fled into the desert where they would form tribes, including the Blue Desert People and the Blue Mountain People.
