    In all of the vast and diverse universe that is Star Wars, there have been many species imagined. They all pocess unique features.

    However, one feature has been ignored commonly in the Star Wars universe......TAILS.

    Why is it that we haven't seen any Sapiens with Tails? I'm not talking about Ewoks either, I'm talking about something similar to Frieza from Dragon Ball Z.
    I know some species in Star Wars do have those tails but they are EXTREMELY obscure.

    When do you guys think we will get these sapiens with a tail feature (don't laugh)? Will they ever show up? If so, what will they be like?

    Lurmen have tails. The Master from Lightsaber Lost had a tail.

    I wonder if Republic credits have tails... or heads for that matter...

    In Star Wars, tails are on heads.

    (facepalm)

    No not like Oppo Rancissis, Lurmens, Cosians, and Hutts! I used "Frieza" as an example (don't know him? look it up) because I am talking about SAPIENS.
    Rancissis is barely a sapien. He is half man and half snake with multiple arms.
    Lurmens and Ewoks are too short and are also very animal-like.
    Cosians are apparently hunched over and have dino-characteristics.
    Hutts are slugs.

    Headtails don't count either. I'm talking about tails as in you know............ass-tails?(please no unesecary pictures)

    I looked up this "Frieza" character you spoke of, and it doesn't look much like a "sapiens" to me.

    There are a lot of species that haven't been named yet that have tails, but the ones I'm thinking of are all animal-like.

    Why haven't we gotten men with tails? Because men don't have tails, animals do.

    I don't know if you're a big fan of tails or what, but I doubt "making a man-like character with a tail" is high on anyone's priority list.

    Whoops! I didn't specify which of Frieza's forms. [face_laugh] Look up "Frieza's fourth form". That is the kind of sapien that I am talking about.

    Men can have tails if they need them. Evolution dictates that kind of stuff. It is possible or likely that a species of sapiens in the SW universe would need tails.

    I'm not a mega-fan of tails but I like the kind of characterization tails can give. It makes the characters more interesting and iconic. Its much better than just taking some dude and giving him a not-so-human head and calling him a different species. This has been done alot with species such as Rodians, Trandoshans, Aqualish, Quarren, and other crazy looking species. I happen to find Trandoshans to be rather odd without tails....

    Not exactly sure why an upright walking being would have a tail... There is nothing to counterbalance.

    (Frieza, BTW)

    Birds don't require elaborately long tails, unless used in display. They lost their long reptilian tails as they evolved. Our ancestors somewhere down the line had tails, though apes lack them and hominids have no use for them.

    Animals that have them generally have bodies that are oriented more horizontally and need to counterbalance the weight distributed anterior of the hip with a long tail. If the center of gravity is already positioned more or less directly above the hip... I'm not sure what the point of a tail would be.

    Add to that the fact that most of the aliens throughout the OT were just big not articulated masks used to fill out a background with bizarre aliens, and there probably wasn't a huge concern with going through the trouble of giving aliens tails. The PT reuses a bunch of OT designs and new designs tended to be less "sapien," so any of them that have tails are going to be disregarded off hand... such as Oppo Rancicis or Boles Roor.

    When it comes to TCW creating new species and giving them tails, they generally gave them to species in which having a tail made sense... which generally means less humanoid/"non sapien"

    Though I'm sure humanoid beings with tails exist somewhere else in the EU. I'm not familiar with any off the top of my head, but with so many people contributing to the Star Wars universe, I'm sure it has been done somewhere.
