Yes, but I can't remember who posted that back then...
There's actually quite a bit that has been used for names that come from ancient civilizations. Otherwise Lucas would've had to just make up stupid names
That's right because...HEY!!! You sayin' Mitth'raw'nuruodo is a silly name
99% sure that was Neila.
Lucas didn't write the Thrawn trilogy
Yes, as a matter of fact, that was me. It's pronounced "chee-lah" in Hungarian at least. I only know these things because the will of the Force was for me to have a Hungarian roommate in college.
Is there compulsory military service for Chiss, or do you volunteer?
I might be too blind to find it in the Wook. *sigh*
Looking over Wook, there's nothing that distinctly says military duty is mandatory, although reading between the lines I wouldn't be surprised. There seems to be quite an extensive array of military and paramilitary forces in the Ascendancy that would need bodies:
Nevertheless, I'd have to say probably not. The Chiss evidently have their civvie bureaucrats as well.
I doubt there would be, although I could see something along the line of high insentives for people to join the chiss military due to it being a more easy road to advancement annonymous of ones house or as a potential path to being adopted into a main household/phalanxe upon retirement.
Just as a quick question, what do you think the first Chiss looked like? We all know and adore their descendants, but a race always come from a few firsts. (I personally would have to use photos of people or drawings to even guess.)
I've always been a fan of the idea that most of the humanoid species in the galaxy are offshoots from pre-Republic times or the Rakatan Era; either developing through evolutionary selection or outright genetic engineering. A few years ago I watched a program on colonizing space that postulated how we'd do it; among the suggestions were creating a reptoid race of humans with scales, nictitating membranes and other adaptations for surviving desert planets, or a four-armed human that would be better adapted for climbing through a spaceship in zero-g.
Just asking, I've noticed the Chiss Jedi icon Csillan_girl uses and was wondering what the source was or whether that character had been identified. I recently cooked up a plot bunny that called for a female Chiss Jedi and was thinking of basing her appearance off that icon.
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood explored the idea of creating human variants suited to different environments.
Would 50,000 years be enough for humans to evolve into all the human-seeming species we see in the SW universe, or would genetic engineering have to be involved?
I couldn't say, to be honest. But I do like the idea of genetic engineering/tinkering, it could explain some of the stranger species. And it makes for a fun plot, I think.
I haven't read much about the Chiss, but they seem pretty cool. The Thrawn Trilogy was where I first heard of them.
So far, I think they are cool, with their blue skin and red eyes
Thrawn is the reason why I fell in love with the race
And I would date a Chiss
I am coming to see if the Chiss here in the EUC are interested in starting a CEDF Fan Club. It will be ran like other fan clubs here, along with a ranking system and to be part of the EU Senate, or not because, as we all know, we are Isolationists.
Let me know, because I've always loved the CEDF...Burgundy uniforms ftw.
I'm really new around here and really quiet so my opinion probably doesn't matter that much, but a CEDF fan club could be fun *ponders*.
Everyone's opinion matters.
Let's get a party going.
Now, as you enter the club, over to the left you can see the 25 by 25 ft painting of Grand Admiral Thrawn, painted from the tears of the House Phalanx.
I would like to start this thing off by asking why, of course, are the Chiss so amazingly interesting.
I am interested in the Chiss, mainly Chiss Ascendancy, because I Thrawn kind of set a precedent from what we could expect from them. I like how they handle government affairs and the fact that they adopt people into the ruling families based off skill. The Chiss species as a whole seemed to be the missing piece that filled the gap of intelligent species completely detached from the galaxy.
Also, the blu skin don't hurt.
As for me, I probably wouldn't have ever cared about the Chiss if it weren't for Thrawn. But of course his influence opened my eyes to their awesomeness. Plus they have some interesting philosophies, not to mention the way they act so emotionally detached. Makes you wonder what's behind the act/what they're repressing.
I would say something, but my reflections would only mirrior yours, so I'm going to go with what you said
Hey guys, the EUC Senate wants your input!
We are trying to get together some logos from the various clubs and groups in the EUC to create a new banner....so if you guys can work something out for the banner we'd be really grateful!

Well? What say ye fans of the Chiss?
To help get this newly introduced topic going I would like to ask whether we want to use the symbol of the chiss, something based off of it, or something of our own design.
For reference the Chiss Ascendancy insignia is [link=http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090322012022/starwars/images/thumb/3/34/Chiss_Ascendancy.svg/436px-Chiss_Ascendancy.svg.png]THIS[/link]
I'm new to the Chiss Fan Club. I love anything that is Chiss. I haven't read all yet dealing with the Chiss but I'm doing my best to do so. I do have a question though, I'm involved in an online RPG and I play as a Chiss and a part of the Chiss Ascendancy. Not only as a personal aide to the Arisotcra but also as an Archivist at the Chiss Expeditionary Library. I'm currently writing a detailed history of the CEDF. I would love to write a detailed account of CEDF weaponry and technology through out their history from the beginnings to Legacy Era. Is there any website or book that would be helpful? Thanks!
Also is there anymore room in the Chiss Defense Force?
The [link=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Chiss_Expansionary_Defense_Fleet]CEDF's entry[/link] in Wookieepedia is the best site I know of regarding their weapons, technology and so on. Two sourcebooks that provide some good info on the CEDF are the [link=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/The_Unknown_Regions]Unknown Region RPG guide[/link], and the ever-awesome [link=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Essential_Atlas]Essential Atlas[/link].
I've been a member of TFU for awhile, but never felt the need to enter this thread. Well here I am.
