Anyway, i was wondering: The minute i saw this guy, i the first thought that came to my head was "Grievous". The masks look extremely similar, and since Grievous was given a robotic body due to injuries, is that what Grievous looked like before? Are they the same species? And what species is that?
Kaleesh. They all have similar masks.

I guess you're talking about Grataa:

Grievous wasn't a droid. He was a cyborg and that's a huge difference.

He was coughing because Mace Windu force crushed his chest as he was escaping Coruscant.
This was shown in the Cartoon Network Clone Wars tv series which came out prior to the release of Episode 3.

In fact Episode 3 starts right were the last two episodes of the Cartoon Network Clone Wars tv series left off. Last two episodes were General Grievous kidnapping Palapatine on Coruscant.




Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003) was a two season animated series depicting what occured between Episode 2 & 3.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008) is a short movie and a five season animated series depicting what occured between Episode 2 & 3.

Why two series?
Because, George Lucas likes to go back and redo things.
Canon wise the new series over rides the old series.

Yeah, Grievous was a Kaleesh Cyborg (seriously, it shouldn't just be Humans who can be Cyborgs in TOR). His cyborg body, however, was not built to look like that of a Kaleesh. Kaleesh are not digitigrade, for one thing.

As for those masks, it's a Kaleesh cultural tradition that Grievous kept up even after being cyborged. You'll rarely see a Kaleesh without his mask on.
Those who can, do. Those who can't, QQ.

Emotion, yet peace. Ignorance, yet knowledge. Passion, yet serenity. Chaos, yet harmony. Death, yet the Force.

Are they? Because clone wars suggest they are, comics suggest they are, this game suggest they aren't, the official NAGAS art suggest they aren't. Apparently, this game also says they have three fingers, which is a LIE!

Maybe they mutated/evolved in the 3000 years from the game to the movies?
