I don't remember where it was, since it's been a very, very long time but I still cringe whenever I think of this particular moment when I was playing with a friend, who had a SW Zabrak and this NPC commenting on the fact that he was glad alien scum wasn't allowed into the higher Sith. I mean, what?

Still nothing beats having a Pure Blood saying that he has no True Sith blood running through his veins on Foundry.
In any backstory I write for J'mpok, who's a Zabrak, I write that he's basically a Subjugate from Corellia. This would explain why he's rich and stuff.

With respect, I take exception to those putting down Zabraks. All of my toons are Zabraks. They serve both Republic and Imperial Factions. They are all related to one another but have clear definitions of what is best for the galaxy since they serve in all the class roles.

The Zabrak species, lore wise, is pretty evenly split between the Republic and Imperial factions in their loyalties. They have two hearts, and a dense cell structure which helps them resist the pain of torture. They are proud warriors and teach their children from very young ages about martial arts and survival skills.

They are my favorite species. Darth Maul HAD ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to with it, even though he was an awesome character. My reasons are: Zabraks are available to all classes at character creation and they are the easiest alien species to emulate for Halloween. LOL. Thank you.

As for the topic at hand: Miraluka are awesome as they are a near-human Force-sensitive species that is born without eyes and yet they have learned to see through the Force. They can see energy in living things, the solar matter streaming off of stars, and in large numbers can see the future with great accuracy. Darth Nihilus, 300 years ago devoured the life energy of the Miraluka species when he sensed their Force-sensitivity on the colony world of Katar. Their deaths also served a strategic advantage to the Sith Triumverate - Darths Traya, Nihilus, and Sion, as an entire chunk of the galaxy was blind to their movements.

Visas Marr, a dark sided Miraluka, light saber wielding woman, served Darth Nihilus and then the Exile. Then you have the Miraluka in SWTOR as mentioned by the other posters before me. My Friend has a Miraluka Imperial Agent/Sniper.

Congratulations for babbling and not actually addressing my point, which is the fact that Bioware cave in to whiners during Beta days and every so often, you get to see dialogue which is paradoxical to say the least, even before the whole Legacy race unlock thingy.

Having a SW Zabrak on DK being refered as a Pure Blood by a Pure Blood Sith or refering to a Chagrian as alien filth, is LoL worthy to say the least. Still, nothing but absolutely NOTHING beats the slap in the face, concerning the one in the Foundry, if you're a SI Pure Blood.

Also, you want talk of races that got smacked in the face and are still around and kicking, regardless? Cathar. Enough said.

I didn't see a need to address your point. You made one and I didn't disagree with it. I just feel a kindred connection to the Zabrak species and felt attacked by what you said about Zabraks. That is what I was addressing not your overall message. I didn't see my message as babbling.

Actually, with their fascination with masks, just about any Sith might be a miraluka.

If you follow canon, Miraluka are primarily light side leaning as a species.

The only exception to my knowledge was Visas Marr, http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Visas_Marr. An interesting read. She didn't actually follow the dark side for very long after she fell, but did contribute to a few major conflicts on her return path to the light side. Ultimately she teamed up with Jedi exile Meetra Surik and I guess you could classify her from there as a grey jedi.

part 2: how many of you have/are miraluka sith to play as?

part 3: which sith class is more appropriate for a miraluka?
I hadn't noticed the Trainer, admitted, but why not? I wager they'd be rare, but possible, heck, a Twi'lek is the advanced class guy on fleet.

My Sorc Heals is Miraluka, I've also had a few others, mostly force users on both sides. Interesting people, fun social, really. I love the dark side effect when you use it on players.

Inquis, absolutely. Warrior would be a stretch, maybe if you worked it they were Hybrids or something, say a lineage was weakening and bred with Miraluka to increase their kids' Force Sensitivity or something, I can see that. Even though most Miraluka Hybrids tend to have eyes from what I've read. Total opinion there as a possible why for the SW Miraluka, feel free to disagree.
