    Its not outright said who made the Tho Yor. Only that the Kwa occupied Tython so it implies they made the Tho Yor but nothing is revealed yet. Personally, I think they are Celestial constructs.

    Was the "Over-Predor" also called the "Daritha"? Seeing a Daritha would be wonderful.

    Personally I felt from the book that they smacked more of Gree origin, bathing pools seem more up their alley than the Celestial formats for buildings.

    Do we have any idea of how many of the galaxies species have been genetically manipulated/modified/created by the Ancient?

    Funny that you ask, because I was just about to post the question of whether or not the Celestials created other species.

    Something else that I'm wondering is if the Celestials are god-like beings or beings that advanced over time.

    yet another question: Did the Celestials influence the creation of the Jedi and/or Sith?

    I like this explanation for why the GFFA is so filled with sentient species that are similar to each other (breathe oxygen, similar body plan).

    Is it possible that Yoda is a Celestial?

    Is it possible that the Ones were responsible for the 5000 year long Jedi-Sith cycle?

    Why do you think that is possible? And why would they do that?

    Because the Jedi-Sith cycle went out-of-whack upon their deaths.

    By the ancient races or do you mean by the Celestials/Architects? I don't think anything has been said for certain. We know the Rakata did some genetic manipulation when the Mother Machine tried to find a way of recreating her master's Force connection where the Codex says several races were created as a result. The FFG material says the Celestials/Architects may have transplanted Humans to Corellia and we know that the Drall recorded their first encounter with the Celestials on their world. But nothing of genetic manipulation or modification. Just an encounter.

    I noticed that the codex for Korriban says that Korriban has canyons and dry rivers. Does this mean that there used to be water on Korriban?

    It is shown as cold in TotJ so maybe it is in an ice-age every time the rest of the galaxy has trouble with sith?

    I thought that was Ziost that was cold.

    I looked in my GAotS and you are right, I was confusing Korriban and Ziost. But that don't mean that my suggestion don't have merit, most of the water could be at the poles as ice

    When DOTJ began, I remember saying that I thought it would have been cool to have seen a Korriban before the Sith species were corrupted, rich with flora and fauna, with the idea being that by the time of TOTJ, it had been bled dry of all life, corrupted by the dark side after the Rakata visited Adas and their dark teachings twisted the Sith ways...

    Alas, with Lucas having taken it on himself to rechristen it Moraband, I expect we're now meant to assume it's just the mystical dark side parallel of wherever the heck Yoda visited. Not that I dislike mysticism and that sorta thing in Star Wars... I just always wanted to see a Pre-Rakatan civilisation where the Sith were savage and into dark voodoo and stuff, but hadn't plunged into the deep end yet.

    I disagree. Everything we're told and shown about Moraband is attributed to the actions of the Sith. We're never told anything about what it was like before the Sith existed/showed up.

    I'm beginning to wonder if Episode IX will end with Moraband and Tatooine being restored to their natural state.
