Mirialans.

10. Mirialans

  • Homeworld: Mirial
  • Habitat: Desert/Wastelands
  • Language: Mirialan

General Traits and Characteristics

The Mirialans were a near-human species that lived on the planet Mirial in the Outer Rim. Renowned for their spirituality and strong connection to nature, the Mirialan people often practiced primitive Force practices, believing that their individual actions contributed significantly to their destiny. Building on this attitude, their societal structure was extremely stratified, with one’s personal status and placement marked heavily by their family’s prior contributions to their culture as a whole. Among some of the most notable Mirialans in the Star Wars universe were Jedi Masters Luminara Unduli and Cyslin Myr, as well as Padawan Barriss Offee, and the Seventh Sister. Following the rise of the Galactic Empire, little is currently known (or understood) about what became of the Mirialans under Imperial rule.

Appearance

Mirialans were renowned for their unique skin tones that ranged from green and yellow to pink and purple in its overall appearance. For most of their people, black geometric tattoos were also drawn on their faces to symbolize personal achievements. As such, the more tattoos one possessed often meant that the individual was either very mature or highly-skilled. Regarding specific traits, most Mirialans possessed solid black or brown hair, whereas their eyes took on a brown, blue, or purple coloration. They were also quite flexible, giving them a decisive edge over humans in the realm of martial arts and agility. When taken together, they were an incredibly attractive alien species, making them a clear choice for our current list.

Pantorans.

Pantorans.

9. Pantorans

  • Homeworld: Pantora
  • Habitat: Marshy Tundra
  • Language: Galactic Basic Standard

General Traits and Characteristics

The Pantorans were a near-human species that were native to the marshy tundra moon of Pantora (which orbited the planet Orto Plutonia). Part of the Galactic Republic during its waning years, the Pantorans operated under the Pantoran Assembly (which was comprised of a democratically-elected body, Speaker, and Chairman). As a civilized and elegant people, the Pantorans were renowned for their sophisticated and somber architectural style, as well as their steadfast devotion to an unnamed moon goddess. Despite their achievements, however, Pantoran society was also extremely independent, owing to years of harassment by slavers and spice merchants that roamed their system. With the rise of the Galactic Empire, their culture and way of life was ultimately destroyed, as the Pantorans were cut off from the rest of the galaxy, and were forced to split into three separate factions.

Appearance

The Pantorans were an incredibly beautiful and attractive species that were often mistaken for Chiss (due to their similar body structure and skin color). As a sentient and near-human people, they possessed two arms, a single head, as well as two legs. Reaching an average height of 1.5 to 1.9 meters, most of the Pantorans were relatively tall, and possessed an icy blue skin coupled with hair that varied between black, purple, blue, or even white. Similar to the Mirialans, the Pantorans were also extremely fond of social status and rank, choosing to adorn their bodies with jewelry or helmets that reflected their noble heritage and ancestry. Taken together, they were an incredibly attractive species in the Star Wars universe, making them an easy choice for our current list.

Theelins.

Theelins.

8. Theelins

  • Homeworld: Unknown
  • Habitat: Unknown
  • Language: Galactic Basic Standard

General Traits and Characteristics

The Theelins were a species of near-humans that first appeared in the hit movie, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Originating on an unknown world, very little is currently known or understood about their customs, way of life, and general origins. Nevertheless, it is currently believed that the majority of Theelins present in the Star Wars universe are not full-blooded specimens; rather, they are usually hybrids of both Theelin and human (or near-human) ancestry. Canon sources indicate that the Theelin people underwent a number of mutations during the waning years of the Galactic Republic, leaving them with the inability to produce offspring. As such, their people remain in a constant downward slide towards extinction, with only a handful of Theelins known to have existed by the time of the Galactic Civil War. In spite of this, they remain one of the galaxy’s greatest sources of performers and artists, as their people contributed tremendously in the realm of music, paintings, as well as fashion.

Appearance

Regarding their overall appearance, the Theelin people are renowned for their stunning beauty and aesthetically-pleasing qualities. Although exact details of their people remains unknown (due to a lack of specific data in canon sources), most tend to be tall, and maintain purple or reddish-colored skin. Adorning their nearly flawless skin is a number of colorful spots (of varying colors), as well as six small horns that line the sides of their skull. Combined with their brightly colored hairstyles, three-toed feet, and curvaceous bodies, the Theelins are certainly one of the sexiest alien species to have graced the Star Wars universe.

Sith.

Sith.

7. Sith

  • Homeworld: Dromund Kaas; Korriban; Ziost
  • Habitat: Barren
  • Language: Sith

General Traits and Characteristics

The Sith (also known as “Red Sith” or “Sith Purebloods”) were an ancient humanoid species endemic to the world of Korriban. Coalescing themselves into an impressive empire, the Sith eventually expanded outward in their pursuit of greatness, settling the ice-world of Ziost, and Dromund Kaas in latter centuries. Possessing a natural proclivity towards the Dark Side of the Force, the Sith were first ruled by kings, which were later replaced by Dark Lords. After the arrival of Human Exiles around 6900 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin), however, the Sith people underwent a number of physiological mutations, as interbreeding resulted in a hybrid race of both Sith and human. Those who remained pureblood were regarded with pride, and were granted substantial privilege within the highly-stratified that emerged. Despite their tremendous progress and Golden Age of advancement though, the Sith species was eventually eradicated during the Great Hyperspace War that ensued between the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire, leaving only fragments of their once-great empire.

Appearance

In spite of their violent behavior, the Sith were an incredibly attractive species renowned for their crimson-colored (sometimes pink) skin, as well as their “predatory profile” which included bone spurs that protruded from various parts of their body. Cranial horns and cheek tendrils were also common for the Sith, along with pointed teeth, and bright yellow eyes (giving them a menacing and extremely unique physical appearance). Completing their body was three-clawed digits on each hand and foot that could be used for offensive or defensive purposes. Taken together, they were an extremely sexy alien race, despite their evil and underhanded way of dealing with things. As such, their inclusion on this list was well-deserved.

Echani.

Echani.

6. Echani

  • Homeworld: Eshan
  • Habitat: Unknown
  • Language: Thyrsian; Galactic Basic Standard

General Traits and Characteristics

The Echani were a near-human species that lived on the world of Eshan (a world that was part of the Inner Rim). Characterized as a matriarchal caste-based society, the Echani ruled over a confederation of six planets that were collectively known as the “Six Sisters.” Ruling the confederacy was an all-female council of the Echani Command. Capable of kinetic communication (involving body language), the Echani culture maintained a steadfast devotion to combat, as the believed that fighting was a form of self-expression and art. With their ability to read feelings and emotions from body language, the Echani were extremely prideful of their combat capabilities, eventually developing a warrior-like culture that lasted for centuries. Although their confederacy eventually collapsed (following a series of revolts known collectively as the “Bengali Uprising”), the Echani continued to play a vital role in the Republic and Galactic Empire, with many of their fighting techniques adapted by the Emperor’s Royal Guard and ISB (Imperial Security Bureau).

Appearance

The Echani were an insanely attractive species renowned for their similar anatomy to humans. Among their most notable traits was light (fair) skin, as well as white hair, and silver (sometimes blue) eyes. Amongst family members, the Echani were also unique in that their close relatives (such as siblings and parents) appeared almost indistinguishable from one another (making it almost impossible for outsiders to make distinctions). These traits are believed to have been the result of Arkanian experimentation with human-based genomes in centuries past, resulting in the close resemblance of Echani, as well as their unique body characteristics. When examined together, it is not difficult to see why the Echani were one of the sexiest and most attractive alien species of the Star Wars universe.

Zabraks.

Zabraks.

5. Zabraks

  • Homeworld: Iridonia
  • Habitat: Arid
  • Language: Zabrak

General Traits and Characteristics

The Zabraks were a carnivorous species that resided on the planet of Iridonia (which was situated in the galaxy’s “Mid Rim”). Characterized as an extremely proud, arrogant, and determined species, the Zabraks were widely recognized as one of the most independent people in the entire Star Wars universe. Such traits were not limited to their view of outsiders, as Zabrak citizens actively took on roles within their own society to limit their dependence on others. In spite of this, their people remained extremely loyal to the Galactic Republic during its long history, while fiercely opposing the Galactic Empire following its rise to power after the Clone Wars. Determined to avoid a subservient life (and refusing to obey the Emperor), many Zabraks actively joined the Rebel Alliance (and later the Resistance) in order to restore the galaxy to its former self; a decision that often placed them in harm’s way with the Empire, who viewed them as both terrorists and insurrectionists.

Appearance

As a near-human species, the Zabraks possessed a number of traits similar to human physiology. Nevertheless, they were also quite unique in that they were carnivorous and possessed vestigial horns around the crown of their head. For males, this feature was a lot more pronounced, whereas horns on females tended to be much smaller and less-noticeable. Complementing this feature were deep manes of hair that varied between black, dark blue, or even purple in coloration. This was contrasted sharply by their light to dark skin tones, which ranged from orange to red (and sometimes yellow). Finally, the Zabraks were also unique in the fact that they were extremely well-muscled and athletic in their appearance, and possessed two separate hearts that provided them with extra energy, stamina, and speed when engaged in combat (due to their hearts’ ability to rapidly pump blood throughout their body’s vital organs). This sense of athleticism was not only beneficial in times of war, but also added significantly to their species’ overall sex appeal to outsiders. Combined with their facial tattoos (which indicated personal status, interests, and familial ties), the Zabraks were an exceptionally attractive alien race worthy of the number five spot on our list.

Chiss.

Chiss.

4. Chiss

  • Homeworld: Csilla
  • Habitat: Ice and Snow
  • Language: Cheunh

General Traits and Characteristics

The Chiss were a near-human species that lived on the planet Csilla in the Unknown Regions of space. Having little contact with the rest of the galaxy for much of their existence, very little is currently known about their origins and social structure. Nevertheless, both canon and “legends” sources indicate that the Chiss were a noble and prideful species governed by the Chiss Ascendancy. Within this government body were the ruling classes, known collectively as the Aristocra, along with the supreme legislative and executive body which was known as the Chiss Syndicure. Renowned for their warrior-like status, the Chiss possessed a rich and intricate knowledge of military doctrines which they utilized (without hesitation) for offensive and defensive operations in their sector. Despite their noble attempts to remain disconnected from the Republic and Galactic Empire, however, the Chiss soon found themselves embroiled in the Galactic Civil War taking place between the Rebel Alliance and Imperial forces. Among the most notable member of the Chiss was the infamous Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Appearance

In regard to their overall appearance and physical attributes, the Chiss were a remarkably attractive species renowned for their near-human traits. One of their most notable features was their blue skin that varied between lighter and darker tones. Keeping pace with their skin color was their bluish-black hair that often took on a “shimmering” quality due to its finer qualities. Perhaps their most unique feature of all though was the glowing red eyes that adorned both male and female Chiss of all ages. Combined with their athleticism (for which they were known for), even-tempered personalities, as well as their deadly (and somewhat cold-blooded) allure, the Chiss were an incredibly attractive species, and certainly one of the hottest to have ever been introduced in Star Wars.

Togrutas.

Togrutas.

3. Togrutas

  • Homeworld: Shili
  • Habitat: Mountains
  • Language: Togruti; Galactic Basic Standard

General Traits and Characteristics

The Togrutas were a humanoid species that resided on the planet Shili (within the Expansion Region of space). Living in mountainous territories, the Togruta people were led by a single queen who held the titles of “Regasa of Shili,” “Supreme Huntress of the United Tribes,” as well as “Ruler of Togrutas.” For protection and police duty, the government also consisted of the basic Togruta Military and the Royal Togruta Guard. Characterized as a fiercely independent and religious people, the Togruta initially resisted all attempts to join the Galactic Republic. By the time of the Clone Wars, however, this mentality changed as the Togruta were no longer able to avoid conflict, choosing to reluctantly join the Republic in order to preserve their customs and way of life. With the rise of the Galactic Empire shortly after, many Togruta resorted back to their independence, choosing to align themselves with partisans rather than bowing to the commands and wishes of the Imperial military. Although little is currently known about their culture and contributions, both canon and “legends” sources indicate that they were among some of the greatest artists in the galaxy, and maintained a pacifist view to warfare (fighting only when there was no other alternative).

Appearance

The Togrutas were an incredibly attractive species with a number of human and alien traits. Possessing skin and eye colors that varied significantly between blue, orange, red, white, and yellow, the Togruta were able to effectively use their unique coloration for camouflage from predators, as it allowed them to easily blend into their natural environment. Likewise, their heads were typically covered with cone-like horns (called montrals) that adorned the top of their skull, along with three separate lekku (head-tails similar to Twi’leks) along the sides. The combination of lekku and montrals served a dual purpose, as they were both beautiful to onlookers and provided the Togruta with echolocation abilities due to their motion-sensing qualities. Combined with their white stripes, greyish-colored lips, and tendency to dress in highly-revealing attire, the Togruta were an exceptionally attractive species worthy of a top-five spot in our current list.

Zeltrons.

Zeltrons.

2. Zeltrons

  • Homeworld: Zeltros
  • Habitat: Temperate Forests
  • Language: Galactic Basic Standard

General Traits and Characteristics

The Zeltrons were a near-human species native to the planet of Zeltros. Classified as an extremely hedonistic society, the Zeltrons were renowned in the Star Wars universe for their love of sex, thrill-seeking, as well as artistic expression. As such, their homeworld was often depicted as a “party planet” that revolved around having a good time and maximizing one’s pleasure to the fullest. As such, monogamy was typically looked upon as an outdated and foolish concept for the people of Zeltros, while alcoholic beverages and mind-altering substances were all the rage. Unfortunately, very little is currently known about the Zeltrons due to their limited appearances in both canon and “legends” sources. Nevertheless, current sources indicate that they were highly-gifted in the realm of holograms, and were responsible for creating the amusement park space station known as “Hologram Fun World.”

Appearance

The Zeltrons were an incredibly sexy alien species renowned for their human-like form and reddish skin that varied between light pink and crimson. Complementing their skin was smooth hair that varied considerably in coloration. Aside from being extremely fit and well-toned (due to their fast metabolisms), the Zeltrons also possessed the ability to release potent pheromones at will (similar to the Falleen). This allowed them to greatly enhance their sex appeal to others (especially off-worlders). This was further augmented by their telepathic abilities, which allowed them to project certain emotions on others. As a result, many Zeltrons were hired by criminal organizations (such as the Exchange) for their remarkable gifts. When combined with their sensuous nature and attitude towards life, it is not difficult to see why the Zeltrons were one of the sexiest alien species to have ever appeared in Star Wars.

Twi'leks.

Twi'leks.

1. Twi'leks

  • Homeworld: Ryloth
  • Habitat: Desert
  • Language: Twi’lek

General Traits and Characteristics

Taking the number one spot in our list of the sexiest alien species (of Star Wars) is the beautiful Twi’leks. Characterized as a near-human species, the Twi’leks were a people endemic to the planet Ryloth (which was part of the Outer Rim Territories). Although generally stereotyped as slaves, criminals, and exotic dancers, the Twi’leks were actually quite intelligent, dexterous, and physically capable beings. Considered one of the most common species of the Star Wars universe, the Twi’leks enjoyed considerable freedom and protection as a member world of the Galactic Republic; operating under a clan-based form of governance throughout the numerous towns and cities that adorned their planet.

With the advent of the Clone Wars, however, this soon changed as the planet became a battleground for the Confederacy and Republic forces, resulting in tremendous devastation to Ryloth and its people. With the advent of the Empire, things only got worse for the Twi’leks as their world was transformed into an Imperial Protectorate, subjecting them to harsh laws, Imperial decrees, and punishment. In spite of this, the Twi’leks reorganized themselves into a number of resistance groups, becoming a vital component to the fledgling Rebel Alliance in latter years. Among some of the most notable Twi’leks were Hera Syndulla, Oola, and Jedi Master Aayla Secura.

Appearance

The Twi’leks (especially females) were an insanely attractive species renowned for their vast array of skin colors (ranging from white, orange, yellow, pink, purple, black, and even red). Female Twi’leks, in particular, were renowned for their extra soft skin as well as their long appendages known as “lekku” (head-tails) that adorned the back of their skull. Although most Twi’leks possessed an average of two lekku, it wasn’t uncommon to see individuals with upwards of four. Hearing organs were also common amongst the Twi’lek people, with females possessing cone-shaped organs on the sides of their head, whereas males maintained lobes similar to that of humans. Combined with their ultra-slim frame, athletic bodies (due to fast metabolisms), as well as their grace and charm, it is no wonder the Twi’leks are widely cited as the most beautiful, attractive, and sexy alien species in the Star Wars universe; a feat that will likely stand for the foreseeable future.
