"I am capable of speaking Basic if that is how we must proceed."
"That will not be necessary. Use your native language. I have brought my own translating droid."
―A Mairan ambassador and Tenel Ka[src]

The sentient Mairan species of the planet Maires spoke a language composed of music-like notes played on a shell flute. In 23 ABY, Tenel Ka, the Hapan-Dathomiri princess, used the translator droid M-TD to talk with a Mairan ambassador who was using a shell flute to speak his native language.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Mairan language first appeared in the 1998 Young Jedi Knights: Lightsabers, a young reader's novel by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta.[1]
