A Force from the Past
The Falleen were an exotic, cold-blooded reptomammalian species known to be long lived, with life spans averaging 250 years.
The sleek symmetry of their features, calculating and cold demeanors, their exotic looks, and their ability to alter their skin pigmentation meant that the Falleen were often considered to be among the most aesthetically pleasing beings in the galaxy. In addition to their strikingly beautiful appearance, the Falleen exuded pheromones which made them all but irresistible to both sexes, as evidenced when Quinlan Vos fell under the influence of a male Falleen’s pheromones. They had small scales all over their bodies, as well as slightly clawed fingers and toes. In addition, the Falleen displayed prominent facial and spinal ridges, though females tended to have slighter, more subtle growths.
The Falleen were semi-aquatic, and were able to hold their breath underwater for a long period of time, leading exobiologists to believe that the Falleen’s ancestors were completely aquatic. The appearance of breasts and other mammalian characteristics in Falleen females and males have also led exobiologists to believe that Falleen had a mammal ancestor.
They were one of the few species resistant to mind tricks, and had green blood.
A few of the Falleen joined the Rebellion when Darth Vader razed a city and slaughtered some 200,000 individuals to contain a failed biological experiment on the Falleen homeworld. Xora, Zuur, and Prince Xizor were three of the Falleen known to have sought revenge on Darth Vader for the deaths of their families and friends, only to be killed by the very same Sith Lord anyway.
