Humanoid mammals distinguished by their massive coned craniums, the Cereans kept complex,[2] binary brains within their towering skulls[6] which allowed the garden species to see both sides of any issue.[4] These organs relied on blood pumped from their two hearts.[7] Cereans could grow hair and some sported eyebrows, white beards,[8] dark stubble,[5] and even topknots and braids.[3]

The Cerean species inhabited the beautiful planet of Cerea, which remained largely unspoiled by technology.[6]

Ki-Adi-Mundi was a Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council whose white beard and wise features attested to years spent in service to the Jedi Order. He fought throughout the Clone Wars and was killed by the clone troopers of the 21st Nova Corps when Darth Sidious issued Order 66.[8]

O-Mer was a Cerean who trained as a Padawan during the war and faced Trandoshans who hunted him and fellow apprentices for sport on Wasskah.[3]

Soo-Tath was a Cerean who operated as a debt collector during the Galactic Civil War and threatened Chelli Lona Aphra after she failed to pay the organization he represented. However, the protocol droid 0-0-0 attacked Soo-Tath with a neurotoxin that resulted in the Cerean's death.[5]

Kidi Aleri was a Cerean female communications specialist who served the Rebel Alliance in the Galactic Civil War. She was one of several individuals that were part of a team headed by Princess Leia Organa for a mission known as Operation Yellow Moon.[10]
