Chiss Jedi are extremely rare in Star Wars. Chiss, the blue-skinned humanoid species of the legendary tactician Grand Admiral Thrawn, originate from the planet Csilla. They feature blue-black hair and glowing red eyes.
According to Star Wars Canon, Force-sensitivity among Chiss is very rare, limited in scope, and fleeting over time. No Chiss Jedi exist in Star Wars Canon. Nearly all Force-sensitive Chiss are female. A typical Force-sensitive Chiss individual would possess Second Sight (telepathy) and sometimes Third Sight (precognition). They would commonly serve as navigators in the Chiss fleet. Force-sensitivity typically fades and eventually disappears as Chiss individuals age.
Although there are currently no Chiss Jedi in Star Wars Canon, a few Chiss Jedi do exist in Star Wars Legends material along with one Dark Acolyte. Let’s explore their stories.
