So a specieis that can speak basic, is mostly humanesque in appearance but possibly slightly less so than the current species, and currently exists in game likely in a large number. I'd put Togruta as the species with highest probability now that Cathar have been added.
Oh, I agree completely. I was thinking Voss would be more likely than even Cathar, until I saw Cathar being announced. Another species we see alot of in game are the Nautilons. I myself wouldn't mind Devaronians, actually. Gault was a fun character to interact with, anyway.

From what I've noticed, seeing particular race/class combos in-game as NPCs does not necessarily indicate that it is/will be a standard combo available in the character creator (off the top of my head, I believe my Sith Warrior's trainer on the fleet was a Twi'lek).

Republic only races:

Empire only races:
Sith Pureblood

Given the above, I wouldn't be surprised if the Republic got Cathar and the Empire did not. Of course, just about any race could theoretically be an Inquisitor as the Empire will enslave just about any race, and Smugglers and BH's could be just about any race too. Yet, those classes are still limited to select races in character creation.

Then again, the Empire is popular and Bioware may simply want to please as many people as possible, who knows.

Hello everyone!

Because a thread about this topic already exists, we'll be closing this thread in order to consolidate discussion. We encourage you to join the existing discussion of Cathars here:

Cathar as a playable species

Thanks for your understanding.
