Cathar as a Playable Species

So it's official, Cathar are going to be the first expansion playable species.

Babies for f!trooper and Aric!! (and yes, I'll probably be rolling another trooper just to do this)

I'm really curious what kind of skin/hair/face models they're going to be using. All the female Cathar I've seen in the game have that really short hairstyle and most Cathar (aside from some of the Aric customizations) are reddish brown. Anyone happen to know what's normal as far as the lore goes?
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

I just hope for more character slots per server. I have used all eight by now and I really want a Cathar character. I wanted it since I first met that NPC catgirl on Ord Mantell <3

This is the thread I saw on it. http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=471614

I get so tired of all of the negativity on the general boards. It's a much better atmosphere over here in Story & Lore!

Lol, I'm not the only one who's noticed that. It's gotten to the point where if I have a topic I'd actually like to discuss I try to find a way to attach it to lore and story even if it wasn't originally meant to just cause I know if I put it in general it's going to get swallowed by the negativity.

Soooo...
Based on the skins they have for Aric already, I'm guessing we're going to have some pretty cool pelts to pick from. I'm thinking leopard would be fun.

I can't wait to make a little lion man. He's going to look a lot like Urbax from the smuggler series on Coruscant... and be only my second male out of six.

Double yay! I think Cathar is a great choice for a new playable species, and glad to see a thread about it here. ^^

I am super curious to see what options will be available for them too! If I can make one with a decent looking head of hair (I'm weird, I can't stand playing bald or near-bald characters, lol) I am totally making myself a kitty when they are released. Definitely saving a class/slot for one! And hopefully they will be unlockable through legacy too, like current species are.

Crossing my fingers for a lioness or snow leopard type of pelt! <3

I'm the same way, pretty much the only race that hasn't made it past level 3 with me is Rattataki, although Twi'lek doesn't really appeal either. That said, I love bald (and nearly bald) men.

But if they have some actual hair for the females I'll be in good shape - if they had something a bit Cheetara-like I'd be even better.
