Lasats were a humanoid sentient species native to the Outer Rim world of Lasan, though the species originated from the Wild Space planet Lira San. They were thought to have been driven to the brink of extinction when Lasan was devastated by the Galactic Empire, but there were actually millions living on their true, isolated homeworld.

Within the species, those with fighting skills were highly respected, often being members of the Lasan High Honor Guard, a group of highly trained, highly intelligent warriors sworn to protect Lasan. Bo-rifles were a long-standing tradition in Lasat culture, used exclusively by the Honor Guard of Lasan. The warrior way of the Lasats was the Boosahn Keeraw. When a Lasat was bested by a superior opponent in combat, they would give them their weapon.

Facial hair was an important status symbol in Lasat culture. Those with green eyes and prominent purple stripes were considered to be attractive by others of their species. Juvenile Lasats were noted to climb tree branches. The species spoke Lasat, a language whose r's were difficult to replicate by most other species.

On Lasan, time was measured by counting how many of their homeworld's dust seasons they had survived through. The Lasats believed in the Ashla, a "spirit of the galaxy" and a personification of the Force. Using a Bo-rifle, a Lasat was able to channel the Force to see past and future events.

Species Characteristics

Personality: Lasats tend to be loyal, dedicated to a fault, and suspicious of others not regularly associated with themselves.

Physical Description: Lasat are tall bulky humanoids with pale, or purple skin with dark stripes. Their facial hair is an important status symbol for males. Females have sideburns that can grow to a longer length than the males do to indicate their status, or a mane that they can grow out long and eventually braid or connect into their sideburns if they so wish. Lasat typically stand from 2 to 2.3 meters. The fur patterns of a Lasat varied from individual to individual, and could change suddenly as they aged. Some humans considered a Lasat's strong odor unbearably offensive.

**Homeworld: Lira San, adopted the world of Lasan.

Languages: Lasats speak, read, and write both Lasat and Basic.

Example Names: Boscoface, Chava, Davin, Gron, Garazeb Orrelios.

Adventurers: Lasat adventurers usually start out as fugitives of the Empire as Scouts or Soldiers. Following the fall of Lasan, very few Lasats were left in the galaxy, and of those who survived, most were enslaved by the Empire. Those that escaped wander the galaxy forming tight groups or find other ways to survive.
