I would rather have no Chiss than rimagined Chiss.
There have already been appearances by a Chiss as a barkeep in a game, and in books mentioned as rarely seen in the fringes of space nearest the unknown regions of the western galaxy and only on the edge of civilzation as limited pairs of individuals keeping to themselves as they move around the galactic civilized norm. Just because we see one or two even in the background or as a one line character, it could do absolutely nothing to the chiss as a species
Quick question because I can't remember anything about this:
Can Chiss cry? Do they?
The article in the wook is very long and the search for 'cry' in the text dind't bring any results. Is there a canon (fanon) stance on this?
Do we know how chiss everyday wear looks like?
Panha from Invasion might qualify as an example of a Chiss wearing everyday wear - she's an explorer with a Wookiee copilot, rather than an officer:
There is also a fairly nice picture in the Saga Edition Unknown Regions splatbook:
I've been out of it for awhile. Does anyone know if they plan on re-introducing the Chiss into the new canon?
That is yet to be seen as far as I know.
Darn. So much to do with the Chiss is wrapped up in Post-RotJ EU, so there's no chance of that ever returning to canon. We might see some major changes once they finally resurface. Hopefully they don't ruin them.
I'd love to see more stories about the Chiss.
I don't think there's an official stance on this. As Chiss are supposed to be a close human variant, I imagine they should be able to cry. Not to mention that crying serves a very important purpose, i.e. cleaning out your eye if something gets in it, so I doubt such a thing woukd be lost, looking from an evolutionary perspective.
