The Estillan are a strange race of people from the world of Urid
Eti. They were a Fierce warrior race in the days of the Old Republic
and foguht in many conflcits, for many sides including in a few of
their own wars. Their homeworld was devastated during the clone wars,
however, and they were then enslaved brutaly by the empire. During the
Empire's 'arival' in system thwe planet suffered heavy damage again
just as the last vestgaes of damage form the clone wars were being
undone. The Estillan who amanged to escape or were not on the planet
at the time scattered throguh the gaalxy. The Empire treats any free
Estillan as runaways and tries to recapture them. Because of their
enslavement, many people in the galaxy assume Estillan are primative.
Estillan are fairly tall humanoid beings standing up to six-feet five
inches tall, often with broad shoudlers and a msucular build. They
are closely related to both Napanese and Nokiawans. In fact it is
believed that either the two races descend from Estillan or that the
Estillan somehow descend from them. They have slightly tanned skin
and larger than normal eyes with vibrantly bright colour. Their hair
is almsot always a starnge colour, though a percentage of them have
black hair. Their eyes and hair make them stand out enough as it is,
however what really points them out as not human is their tails.
They have strong furred monkey-like tails which they foten wrap around
their waists when they are walking about. These long prehensile tails
can grasp things and can even hold the Estillan's body wait up, letting
them hang upsdie down. However the tails are even more clumbsy than
Estillan fingers and cannot eprform any fine manipulation.
Strength:Acrobatics: Time to use: one round. This is the skill of
tumbling, jumping and other complex movements. This skill is often
used in sports and athletic competitions, or as part of dance.
Characters making acrobatics rolls can also reduce falling damage.
The difficulty is based on the distance fallen.
Agilitiy: Estillan are incredibly nimble and agile. At charachter
creation they gain an extra 2D skill dice to put in either Acrobatics,
Dodge, or split up between the two. They get +2D to all jumping
attempts and may jump half their move code, rounded down, vertically.
Prehensile Tail: Estillan have limited use of their tails. They have
enough control to move objects, but the control is not fine enough to
perform fine manipulation such as firing a blaster. The tail has a
strength equal to 3/4 the charachter's strength rounded down.
Enhanced Senses: Because the Estillan have a combination of highly
specialized senses, they receive +2D when using their search skill.
Manual Dexterity: Though they are very agile, estillan have poor manual
dexterity. Their fingers are naturally clumbsy. Anything requiring
delicate manipulation, such as surgery or repair work, Estillan suffer
a -1D to.
Enslaved: The Empire has brutaly enslaved the Estillan scince the
beggining of it's foundership. They let very few go free, and Imperials
never trust any Estillan who isn't wearing a slave collar. Many times
Imperials will assume an Estillan is an escaped slave and try to capture
Reputation: Because of the Empire's condescendiung nature towards them,
the general sentiment of Estillan being primative has spread from
ignorance. Many who encounter an Estillan will assume they are backwards
