Biology and CultureEdit
The Falleen were an exotic, cold-blooded reptilian species known to be as long lived as Hutts, with life spans averaging 250 years. The sleek symmetry of their features, calculating and cold demeanours, 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 naturally exuded pheromones which enhanced their attractiveness. They had small scales all over their bodies, as well as clawed fingers and toes. In addition, the Falleen had prominent facial and spinal ridges, though females tended to have smaller ridges.
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 exobioligists to believe that Falleens share a mammal ancestor with Humans. They were one of the few species resistant to mind tricks, and had green blood.Falleen society is of a feudal nature. The upper echelons of Falleen monarchies were rife with politics and intrigue, but they rarely spilled over into blatant disputes or open warfare. The skin pigmentation of the Falleen changes naturally to reflect the mood of the individual; however, the Falleen culture has individuals, especially nobles, master the ability to change their skin tone at will and have used this as something of a covert weapon in their politics, fostering an appearance of calm, for example, when they are really panicking.
As a cold-blooded species, the Falleen respected discipline and control. They tended to shun public displays of emotion, and were very patient. The Falleen as a species had a sense of superiority which they felt was only right and proper due to their discipline and rigid self-control. They also tended to view their homeworld, and not Coruscant, as the civilized and cultural capital of the galaxy. This arrogance had made the Falleen something of an isolationist species, and though they are not a rare species, it is rare to find them away from their homeworld.
Young Falleen nobles often toured the galaxy to acquire a taste of life away from Falleen. More often than not this merely reinforced the Falleen's biased views and sense of superiority, ensuring that the youth of Falleen never feel the desire to leave home again.
Attraction Pheromones: +1D to Persuasion and +1D for each hour of continuous preparation in meditation to enhance efforts. This may total no more than +3D for any one skill attempt and the attempt must be made within one hour of completing meditation.
Amphibious: May breathe water for up to 12 hrs., +1D to swimming.
Falleen are rarely seen throughout the galaxy since the Imperial blockade in their system many decades ago severely limited travel to and from their homeworld. The ruling class actively keep the lower born from leaving the planet.
