The problem with Rattataki is, they aren't Chiss.

This is the entire reason I don't have one. Every class that can have a Rattataki can have a Chiss instead (I think?) and Chiss >>>>>>> Rattataki.

Love you anyway, Kaliyo.

It's the baldness for females that does it in for me. I've made a slew of little Rattataki-lets, but a couple cut scenes in and they get the axe. I've even tried making a male Rattataki (cause I love bald bada** men) but it's just so alien for me to play a male in a role-playing game that I can't do it. (Yet, I should say I can't do it yet, I keep trying because I want to see some of the story variations that come with playing male characters. I also keep trying to find a female Rattataki I like.)

That said, I think Kailyo is beautiful in a scary kind of way, and I love what I've seen of their culture. I think it could work very well for some classes, especially if you go a bit DS.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Rattis rule my legacy. I've got the only Rattataki Consular I've seen to date. A tank of course - because Jedi or not a Rattataki doesn't hide behind anyone.

It's definitely the baldness that does it for me though strangely, I like how Kaliyo looks without any of her customization kits.

I made a female rattataki sorcerer - I found this facial type that makes her look like she's constantly smirking. She's this skinny little thing - sort of like a female Jack Skellington - but if anyone mistakes her for weak...well, zap! Fried bacon.

I think the female inquisitor voice works really well for her and I think she actually looks quite elegant. I plan on playing her full-on crazy dark side. She's got a HUGE chip on her shoulder from that time spent as a slave.

My Inquisitor, which is my main, is a Rattataki. Not that you can tell, as he's wearing a mask. Could just as easily be a well hidden Smurf.

I'm pretty sure mirialans have at least the lore behind them... strong mystical ties to jedi order/republic bread and butter members. I just can't think of any Mirialans from lore that stand out (definetely not like Thrawn or even Ventress).

Rattis... yes baldness on female is just weird to me too. But then again (maybe I missed soemthing?)why are they Imp-aligned? (as opposed to neutral). It says they have a brutal/war like culture which would vibe with the Sith (strong dominate/survive over corpses of lessors).... but they can't even be SW (not originally)! SW would be the one class that fits the race so well... and nothing.

I know this Thread is way old, but I figured I'd drag it back up to answer the question in the last post. A Sith Lord discovered the Rattataki, enslaved them, and trained them as acolytes. He saw their amazing battle skills and exploited them. Something happened to him like it happens to all Sith lords and most were killed. But by this time, there were a lot of them as slaves to the Empire, and some even received full training. At least, that's what a Wiki told me

Ironically, the nightsisters of dathomir, who are rattataki, are specifically involved in Darth Maul's lore.

Funny enough, she's not even Rattataki but Dathomirian.

As for me, my main is a female rattataki (marauder) so I obv like them
