"They claim to see on a higher plane than we do. You know, the whole Force thing? Makes me nervous."
Atton Rand

The Miraluka were a Near-Human, Force-sensitive species. Their language was Miralukese, although some, like Visas Marr and the Dark Jedi Jerec, preferred Basic.

Biology and appearance

They differed from Humans in that they lacked eyes, instead bearing only vestigial eye sockets, and perceived the environment around them through Force Sight instead of regular vision. This vision was so strong that if a Miraluka looked upon a Jedi or Sith they could "see" Force radiating off them. The strength of a Miraluka's connection to the Force varied by individual.

Miraluka, as Near-Humans, could interbreed with baseline humanity. Humans with Miraluka blood included Krynda and Lucien Draay.[2] It was said that such mating would result in unknown difficulties.[3]

History

Their adopted homeworld was Alpheridies, a planet the Miraluka migrated to when their original homeworld was rendered uninhabitable. A colony world of the Miraluka named Katarr was stripped of all life by Sith Lord Darth Nihilus in approximately 3,952 BBY, during a Jedi convocation.

Society and culture

Miraluka were a thoughtful, cautious, and deliberative species. They had little interest in personal gain or glory. For social reasons, Miraluka hid their appearance by wearing a headband, a mask, or similar concealing headwear. In addition all Miraluka were very united by race. They called themselves "brothers" and were considered as members of a great family. As a Force-using species, Miraluka were often quite shocked if 'shown' life not connected to the Force. The Miraluka that lived on Katarr were strong enough that even they felt the Battle of Malachor V.

Many Miraluka worshipped two gods, Ashla and Bogan, through the philosophy of The Greater Force. They did not believe in Good or Evil, but they are convinced to accept both life and death.

Miraluka in the galaxy

Because of their connection to the Force, many Miraluka have been drawn to the Jedi Order. Miraluka Jedi fought in the Great Sith War, and helped shape the Jedi Order for centuries to come. In the waning days of the Galactic Republic, there were not only many Miraluka Jedi, but many Miraluka, unsuited to becoming full-fledged Jedi, who served the Order as teachers and administrators.[4] Miraluka Sith were seemingly rare, as the species' own outlooks on life and the Force are largely incompatible with Sith teachings. However, as with all who feel the Force, a fall to darkness is possible with the Miraluka just as it is with any other.

Amongst the notable Miraluka was Visas Marr, the only survivor of the Devastation of Katarr and the companion of the Jedi Exile. Other Miraluka were Shoaneb Culu, a Jedi Shadow, and the Dark Jedi Jerec, a member of the Inquisitorius.
