"Like Herglic on Mrlssti."
―An old Tapani saying that highlighted the comical size comparison between the two species

The Mrlssi or Mrlssti of Mrlsst in the Tapani Sector were a species renowned throughout the sector as scholars and scientists.



A Mrlssi.

When their civilization was first developing, Mrlsst was geologically unstable. Mrlssi found that while possessions and buildings were impermanent, knowledge could not be lost. Millennia later, once their continents had stabilized, this tradition continued. Though the Mrlssi still had not developed space travel when Galactic Republic and Tapani scouts made contact with them circa 7,000 BBY, they quickly caught up to the rest of the galaxy by reverse-engineering hyperdrives and modern computers. By the time of the Galactic Empire, Mrlssi universities were among the finest in the Tapani Sector, attracting students of all species.

Mrlssi were flightless avian humanoids, less than one meter tall on average. Their bodies were covered in gray feathers, while their head was bare except for a fringe of feathers covering the back of their head. Their head feathers were brown in young Mrlssi, but became more colorful with age.

Mrlssi should not be confused with the Mrissi of Mrisst, in the GaTir system, who were also a small, scholarly race of flightless birds.
