The Sluissi were the native species of Sluis Van. While their bodies above the waist were humanoid, their lower halves were serpentine. Sluissi were noted for their calm temperament aversion to rushing and impatience compliance to protocol, no matter how trivial and their technical aptitude. Sluissi could use their tongues to sense heat.
Physiology and Culture
Their bodies above the waist were largely humanoid and their lower halves were serpentine. Their bodies were covered with fine scales ranging from light brown to deep emerald green. They have round black eyes and a swooping cobra-like hood.
Sluissi were among the greatest starship mechanics in the galaxy. However, they considered ship repair to be equivalent to artwork, and tended to take a very long time in repair. Spacers learned to be patient though, as the repairs were first rate.
The Sluissi joined the Galactic Republic early in its history, and established major shipyards throughout the Sluis Sector. However, during the Republic's waning days, they became disillusioned, and were among the first to join the Separatist cause. After the end of the Clone Wars, the Sluissi lived under Imperial occupation. When this ended, they became valuable members of the New Republic.
Role in LotJ
Sluissi are patient, sociable and easy-going. They are hard-working and calm and love to tinker with mechanical devices. Sluissi can fill many different roles but most often were ship engineers. Sluis Van shipyards rivaled the quality of any Verpine or Baragwin custom vehicles. Sluissi can speak Galactic Basic but lisp and slur many words because of their snake-like tongues.
