Edge of the Empire
The species most often celebrated as granting the gift of hyperspace travel to the rest of the galaxy, Duros are revered as pilots, explorers, and storytellers. They are also widely sought after as ships engineers and mechanics, which the Alliance needs in abundance. Descended from reptiles, Duros are bipedal humanoids with large red, slitted eyes; smooth blue-green skin; long fingers; bald, bulbous heads; and no nose Uust tiny slits below the eyes which provide their olfactory sense). Their young hatch as larva from eggs laid by the females, but they are raised in a recognizable family unit. Duros aren’t particularly powerful physically, but they possess sharp minds and keen intellects. Though both males and females are bald, other sex characteristics make them easily distinguishable. Most scholars believe the Duros actually invented the first hyperdrive craft, and their contributions to interstellar navigation are impossible to overstate. They are inquisitive and adventurous, and take great pride in their extensive travels throughout the galaxy. It is, in fact, considered polite to refer to any Duros by the honorific “Traveler,” such is their passion for astrogation and exploration of the galaxy.
