Humans are a playable species in Star Wars: The Old Republic. They are available to both factions.


Humans posess a wide spectrum of varying eye, skin, and hair colors. All humans have a torso, two arms, two legs, five fingers on each hand, five toes on each foot, two eyes, two ears, one nose, one mouth and one head. The average human stands 1.7 meters tall.


Humans are known to be a more politically dominant species, as well as the more numerical. Due to their widespread nature and lacking a known homeworld, it is hard to pin down a human culture. Widely adaptive and versatile, human cultures vary from location to location.

Despite lacking a centralized culture, it should be noted that on predominantly human planets, it is easy for humans to fall prey to arrogance, leading some to pro-human sentiments and label themselves as a superior species. Though this is rarely -if ever- the view of the entire population of the planet, occasionally such views spread to be the majority view. It is, after all, the human species that invented the term 'alien' to describe any non-human. This can spread to professional work, and companies such as the human-led Czerka Corporation even enslaved entire non-human populations.

However, humans if nothing else are known for their versatility, and on many planets humans and non-humans share a thriving relationship. Indeed, even marriage between humans and non-humans is well-known to occur.


Human records have been found dating back before 200,000 BBY. It is unknown exactly which planet is the original homeworld of the humans, but it is assumed that humans evolved on one of the Core Worlds near the center of the Galaxy. It is believed by the humans that this planet is Coruscant, though there are many scientists who debate this. The human race has played a key role in the Unification Wars, and it is also responsible for the forming of the Galactic Republic.
