- "When you've been in this business as long as I have, you learn a few things: Nothing's more dangerous than arguing with a Wookiee, nothing's more foolish than gambling with a Jedi, and nothing's more alluring than a Twi'lek dancer. But I'm here to tell you that last one is wrong. If you like your humanoids flexible, svelte, enthusiastic, and in multiple shades of red, then the most beautiful people in the galaxy are on Zeltros. Who needs Twi'leks?"
- ―Ruudi Buundaz
Zeltrons were often stereotyped as lazy thrill-seekers, owing to their hedonistic pursuits. Indeed, their homeworld of Zeltros thrived as a luxury world and "party planet". Most Zeltrons were in excellent physical shape, and their incredible metabolisms allowed them to eat even the richest of foods.
Physiology and Culture
Zeltrons were a near-human species, made physically distinctive by their skin and hair, which came in different shades of red ranging from almost white to pink to deep red. Most of them were considered highly attractive by human and even humanoid standards. They possessed two biological traits of note. The first was that all could produce pheremones, similar to the Falleen species, which further enhanced their attractiveness. The second trait was their empathic ability, allowing them to read and feel the emotions of others.
Zeltron culture was highly influenced by sexuality and pursuit of pleasure in general. Most of their art and literature is devoted to the subject. They looked upon monogamy as a quaint, but impractical state. They were also very gifted with holograms. Zeltrons are known to dress in wildly colorful or revealing attire. It is common to see Zeltrons wearing shockingly bright shades of neon colors in wildly designed bikinis, or nearly skin-tight clothing of other sorts with bizzare color designs & patterns and symbols.
Role in LotJ
Zeltron are warm, lustful and merry. They love parties and people. Because of their empathic nature, Zeltrons who endure great travails or reach old age suffer emotionally. They will develop radical personality traits like deep depression, fervent passion for a cause or intense lonliness.
Zeltron find work in all aspects of Galactic life. They are particularly adept diplomats and spies, with their empathic senses providing a significant edge. While Zeltron can be Force-sensitive, the discipline required for Jedi and Sith training is generally beyond them.
Zeltron can speak Galactic Basic though they often weave exotic, obscure phrases into their speech.
