Could the Amarans be put in Category:Feline sentient species? Are they close enough? There certainly isn't going to be a vulpine cat... --Eyrezer 10:32, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

  • It's a fox, not a cat, so I say leave it in the basic category. -- Riffsyphon1024 10:45, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Amy's post Edit

She posted on Wookieepedia? Such a fact would be noteworthy for WikiFur, which also has an article on her. I couldn't find it with Google, though. Where's the link to the original post? - Sikon 18:13, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Ugh, Furries Edit

I don't suppose anyone knows who canonized this travesty? —Ortchel 02:28, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Yay furries! And this is not travissty, not at all. - LucidFox 04:14, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Sold beasts? Edit

These look like they'd be sentient sellers, not sold pets. 21:32, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

  • The article specifies that the Amarans are sentient and that they sold non-sentient bursas. --Eyrezer 03:14, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

In a Marvel issue? Edit

Star Wars 85: The Hero, snuggling in a cantina, right? 21:32, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Having looked at the pic, I'd say probably not. They looked more feline than vulpine, and we have many feline species that they could have been, ie Trianii or Cantrosians. --Eyrezer 22:40, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

'were'? Edit

I see that, like a few other articles on here, this one speaks of its subject material in the past tense ("The Amarans were a sentient species ...") yet mentions nothing that would mean that this is correct usage. In other words, If they "were a sentient species [with canine/vulpine traits]", what happened since then? are they now non-sentient? Have they evolved feline traits? Did they get wiped out? And, if no, then wouldn't it be correct to say "The Amarans are a sentient species ..."? 23:16, February 1, 2012 (UTC)

  • Per policy, all in-universe articles are to be written in the past tense since Star Wars "occurred" a long time ago.—Cal JediInfinite Empire (Personal Comm Channel) 23:18, February 1, 2012 (UTC)

Height? Edit

Height? Weight? Additional Data? Ever enslaved by the Empire?--Bosda Di'Chi 12:58, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

  • Unfortunately, none of that information has been revealed in any canon source. ~SavageBOB sig 13:52, March 22, 2012 (UTC)
    • They are described as "short" in Coruscant and the Core Worlds, but no exact data is given. Gulomi Jomesh 11:17, April 1, 2012 (UTC)
