Good Morning all,
I thought at one time I had seen a post that spoke about what races can be jedi, but after a pretty long search this past weekend I could not find it anywhere. Not sure if I just overlooked it or had wrong keywords or if the post was removed for not being an accurate source? So basically I am wondering if there was still a post that stated what races can be Jedi or on the flip side, restricted races? My wife and I both want to do Jedi as relaxed outfits compared to what we normally wear, but, don't want to be human or races that are popular. Less human looking the better.

Thank you for your advice and help.
Devlin

So, there unfortunately is no official list of species a Jedi is allowed to be. The Wretched Hive recommends that, whatever species you want to be, you find references of canonical Jedi who were that species, and include them with your application.

That being said, here are species I personally either know for sure have been approved or know for sure we have enough references for:

- Besalisk
- Bith
- Cathar
- Chiss
- Iktochi
- Kel Dor
- Kiffar
- Miraluka
- Mirialan
- Mon Calamari
- Nautolan
- Nikto
- Pantoran
- Pau'an
- Quermian
- Rodian
- Sullustan
- Tholatin
- Togruta
- Twi'lek
- Weequay
- Zabrak

These should NOT be taken as guaranteed approval of these species. But it's a place to start. Strongly recommend that, we you decide on a speciea you are interested in, make a post with your references to confirm that species is approvable.

There was a post, but it lost prominence because it had a lot of conjecture and visually undocumented things rather than things that were seen in LFL source materials.

The LMO team has a list with references/examples that is always being updated and expanded as new information is available.

It must appear in official LFL visual content at least twice, and be something that can be done within the generic standards.

If anatomy or other things prevent that, you could do the face character as seen in LFL art with two plus sources and a clear view of the front and back.

If you have questions do ask, we'd be happy to help.

Thank you both for the info! I would like to know if the list the LMO uses is available anywhere? I am afraid I am not as familiar with resources as some others so the list could be very helpful if not the same as the list in first response. I am still looking and will continue to for a bit before I settle on a race. I am hoping to not go named face character if at all possible.

Thank you again for your help!!

The LMO team hasn't published that list anywhere public, but if you are interested in a particular species, I am happy to help you gather the references you need.

Correct we're still adding to and updating it. If you have a species do tell here, can tell you if we have something there or not.

Not definitive, but might be a place to start. It does list which film/episode the alien was shown in.
