Best "Lore" Race for a class?

explaining a rattataki inquisitor- according to lore, a sith lord once had a personal army of rattataki force users- now, they're pretty commonly enslaved. I could have said it much better, but it makes sense.

Jedi Knight - Human ("Basic" Class, "Basic" Race)
Jedi Consular - Miralukan (Force seeing race)
Trooper - Zabrak (Tough, stubborn, resilient race, perfect trooper material)
Smuggler - Human (Han Solo, eat your heart out.)

Sith Warrior - Sith Pureblood (Any explanation needed here?)
Sith Inquisitor - Human (A human planet taken over is quite logical. A lot of in-game slaves are human.)
Bounty Hunter - Cyborg (Something about a cybernetically enhanced human just makes sense.)
Imperial Agent - Chiss (They just seem to fit the class and story the best.)

Your turn now. Feel free to disagree with me. This is a PERSONAL choice, after all.
I think that Twi'lek would be best for Inquisitor because aren't Twi'leks like the lowest race in the Empire? It would make sense because most of them are enslaved in the Empire.
Peace is a lie, there is only passion. There is no ignorance, there is knowledge. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. There is no death, there is the Force. The Force shall free me.

Jedi Knight - Cyborg. Don't see why this needed unlocking considering there's plenty of them in canon, and as a frontline fighter you're bound to get hurt more than the others. Oh fine, if BASE I'm going with Human.
Jedi Consular - Miraluka, natural affinity with the Force. And while I don't know much of Mirialians, they seem to have an affinity to it too.
Trooper - Human or Zabrak, for their Leadership/Loyalty (heh) social skills.
Smuggler - Human. See plenty of Mirialian ones too.

Sith Warrior - Sith Pureblood (if Dark Side) or Human/Cyborg (both Dark and Light)
Sith Inquisitor - pretty much every race, but Rattataki and Twi'leks would fit with the slave storyline the best.
Bounty Hunter - Human or Zabrak, especially if you're going the Mandalorian way.
Imperial Agent - seems to me a whole class dedicated to our blue boys and girls, the Chiss.

The words you're looking for are Canon (or Canonical, in this case) and Species.

I'm really curious how you came up with this since it's not even a default race, much less on the same faction.
