- "Well, you look like an overgrown Kowakian monkey-lizard, so I guess looks don't count for much."
- ―Kyle Katarn to Desann
Biology and appearance
Chistori had large snouts, with a hinged jaw and a mouthful of teeth, and small eyes. They were lithe but strong.  Like many reptilian species, they were cold-blooded, and like the Trandoshan, they had a durable hide made out of thick scales.
Society and culture
The Chistori were impatient and quick to anger. They often resorted to violence, and had little use for discipline and order.
A notable Chistori was Cydon Prax, right-hand man of Count Dooku during the Dark Reaper Crisis of the Clone Wars. Another Chistori was the Dark Jedi Desann, who was an ally of the Empire Reborn. Many other Chistori in the galaxy found work as bounty hunters, soldiers and assassins.
Behind the scenes
While never explicitly stated, it is heavily implied that the Chistori had no knowledge of the Force, neither as the Jedi knew it, nor as a local religion. Thus the exceptionally few Force-sensitives born to this species were feared and persecuted by their fellow Chistori. It was certainly true of Desann, but it was never specified whether he was born upon a Chisori world.
