Distinctions: Ability to erase memory from minds, Ability to read minds, Multiple tentacles
Mind Control: Mairans have the ability to Read, Erase and Alter the memories of other creatures they come into contact with. To use this ability requires uninterrupted contact with the target for half an hour with they enshroud the targets head in their tentacles. The Mairan must make a Perception test against the targets Willpower (or Control), and if successful may Read or Erase Memories. To alter memories requires a further half hour and a second successful Perception vs Willpower test. A target who has this ability used on them will suffer some mental trauma from this, knowing they have been probed, and if the Mairan succeeded by double their Willpower test, then will suffer from longer term mental effects requiring medical treatment. This ability can be directed by a skilled handler.
Description: Mairan, also referred to as Bors, were a semi-sentient multi-tentacled multipod species that were native to Maires. They had the unique ability to read minds, and as a result, they were often used as a form of torture by the Galactic Empire and the Partisans.
Biology and appearance
Mairan, sometimes known as Bors, were a semi-sentient multi-tentacled multipod species hailing from Maires. They were unique for being able to read minds and erase, or alter, memories. It was known for some individuals, such as the Imperial shuttle pilot Bodhi Rook, to lose their minds after having their mind plundered by a Mairan.
Mairans in the galaxy
Saw Gerrera's Partisans kept a Mairan named Bor Gullet. During the Galactic Civil War, the Galactic Empire kept three Mairans in ice, occasionally defrosting them to interrogate prisoners, with Bor Ifriem being used to interrogate Chelli Aphra in Accresker Jail. Decades later, Harra the Hutt kept a Mairan at her stronghold on Vodran. At one point it was used on Cost Niktur.
