Miraluka

Species

The Miraluka are a humanoid species in the Star Wars universe, known for their unique physical characteristic: they are completely blind and lack visual eyes. However, they compensate for this blindness with a heightened sensitivity to The Force, a mystical energy field in the Star Wars universe. They can perceive the world around them using a form of Force sight or "see" force, which is akin to a physical sight with full color spectrum for some, though it varies significantly among individuals. This highly Force-sensitive species differs slightly in physical appearance from humans, with their eye sockets being empty or covered with a piece of cloth.

Originating from the planet Alpheridies, Miraluka culture holds the Force in high reverence due to their reliance on it for a key aspect of their perception. Miraluka are generally peaceful and avoid conflict when possible, but when forced to fight, they are formidable adversaries due to their unique Force abilities. They have contributed their fair share of both Jedi and Sith throughout galactic history, some of the most notable being the Jedi Knight Visas Marr and Darth Nihilus' Sith apprentice in Knights of The Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.
