New Race Hint?

I saw this in a loading screen and I think this could be a hint at a new race in an upcoming expansion. Is that the same race as Nadia Grell?

I'd play it. I'd need new slots to do it, but I'd do it.

Nice find... I never would have noticed something like that.

Couldn't that just be one of the already in-game races just face painted or something?

That's what I thought at first. Or that it was just a mix of someones tattoos (zabrak) and dark side alignment, but I don't believe the hair and the face markings support those theories. I think that the face markings match that of what is seen on Nadia Grell (similar markings on the cheeks and eyes). I can't find any more images of her race to see if they have skin that light though. I suppose it could also be a combination of legacy unlocks as well..

it could just be early art assets, that is, at some point there was a model that looked like that and it was used for the loading-hints and was never changed later in development.

I suppose they could have a placeholder image for the character's portrait that they have had since early development, but I thought it was interesting since the hint and graphic of the rest of the actionbar are both post 1.2.

Just like the rest of the "races"?

It could be a part of a legacy update. If you get full affliction with a companion you can be that race, that would be cool (but unlikely).
