The Miraluka or the Miralukas?Edit

If I remember correctly, Visas refers to representatives of her species as "the Miralukas". - Sikon 08:14, 4 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Initiates of the Sith says "The Miraluka of Alpheridies." MarcK 09:23, 4 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Power of the Jedi sourcebook also has the plural as Miraluka. I'd be inclined to think the game, as usual, is in error. QuentinGeorge 09:27, 4 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I've mistaken. "The Miralukas" is heard exactly once in the game, other times it is "the Miraluka". I suppose it's the same kind of spelling error as "Bastilla" in Disciple's speech. By the way, why "as usual"? Does the game have other contradictions with something? - Sikon 09:48, 4 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I hope you're being sarcastic. KotOR I & II created more contradiction than I'd like to recall Linkman95 00:00, 21 January 2006 (UTC)
What about...Miralukans? Could that be it? Sounds kinda nice--but what do the books say? Guest 03:01, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

Common Names Edit

What names are common to the Miraluka?

  • What names are common to (insert species here)? Almost any. - Sikon [Talk] 18:28, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
  • Taken from the Ultimate Alien Anthology- Example Names: Damaya Guru, Eloun Kooladi, Embrul Joff, Shoaneb Culu, Zebron Tadro --LightWarden 01:18, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Eyes Edit

I'm seeing some contradictory information with regard to Miraluka eyes. The text of this article says simply have non-functional eyes (which is highly plausible; their ancestors once had normal sight, and vestigal organs are common enought in the evolution of a species), but the infobox claims they have no physical eyes at all. Also, this picture shows Visas Marr with empty eye sockets, though given the scarring, it looks as though her eyes were gouged out rather than having never been there. So which is correct? Red XIV 18:58, 15 April 2006 (UTC)

    • From Unseen Unheard, which I think is the only time we actually see a Mirualuka's eyes, they have sockets that are empty. Visas' looked that way because Nihilus scarred hers. Kuralyov 15:19, 7 May 2006 (UTC)
      • There is this pic... it shows her before the scarring. --RilwenShadowflame 05:35, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
        • Is there any source that says or shows that they have eyes instead of just sockets? I've not yet seen one. --Darth Validus 04:47, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
          • In Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, Jerec (who is a Miraluka) is referred to as having a strip of cloth over his empty sockets. Even the cutscenes seem to show that he has no eyes behind the strip (a nice bit of editing work by the studio), only empty sockets. No scarring can be seen. 71.253.195.106 20:06, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

Vision?Edit

can miraluka see 360 degree's around them o r the limited to human sight? and if other jedi hear the crys of people dieing on a large scale (like obiwan) do miraluka see it? Hicups0002 may7,2006 11:18

  • They don't "see" at all. Their perception of reality cannot be defined by a "line of sight." When Kreia teaches the Exile about seeing through the Force, she has him close his eyes and "feel" the Force. The Exile reads the minds of the crew and then further stretches out his "sight" to where he could percieve everything on the ship, even "the hum of the hyperdrive." It's hard to describe, but a Miraluka "feels" the world around him, so I guess you could say that it is like having a 360 degree vision. And I would guess that the Miraluka would feel large-scale destruction much the same way a trained Jedi would. I don't know if that helps. (Sirius Shadowflame 02:50, 2 October 2006 (UTC))
    • How about the in-game Force Sight, available to Kreia, Visas and the player (who gets it from Visas as an influence reward)? It's almost like conventional sight, except that the world appears grey and organics have a glow. Gameplay mechanics? - Sikon 15:29, 2 October 2006 (UTC)
      • Yeah, I'd be willing to chalk it up to gameplay mechanics, much in the same way Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess handled Link's wolf form senses. The game visualizes the world as another species senses it. Or the movie Daredevil, in the shots when we see how he hears. (Sirius Shadowflame 17:13, 11 January 2007 (UTC))

Force sight Edit

So here is an interesting question, could miraluka have been able to see things not connected to the force such as Vong or Ysalmari (spelled wrong I'm sure)? 70.152.43.245 06:08, 16 February 2008 (UTC)Errr someone special?

  • To expand on that question, would a miraluka within an ysalamiri's "anti-force bubble" be blind? {{SUBST:User:Xavius/Signature}} 10:37, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
  • I guess so. Don't add it into the article though. SoresuMakashi(Everything I tell you is a lie) 10:47, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
  • The RPG, which I believe Wookiepedia considers canon, does indeed state that Miraluka are blind to creatures like the Vong and that their sight does not function in areas where the force is dampened, such as near ysalamiri. Should this be added? 99.154.44.67 08:00, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
    • If you could give me the exact name or link to the source that you are referring to, I'd be happy to check it out. Cylka-talk- 08:12, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
    • It's from the Knights of the Old Republic core rule book for the star wars dnd. In the description for the Miraluka

miraluka jedi are rare? Edit

"Despite their inherent connection to the Force, Miralukan Jedi were quite rare, and Miralukan Sith were completely unheard of in the Galaxy prior to the years following the Jedi Civil War."

just wondering what the source is for this? in 'tales of the jedi: dark lords of the sith', when introducing shoaneb culu it says "her people, many of whom become jedi, see only in the force."

Philby 15:11, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Many Miraluka became jedi, but there weren't many Miraluka. 75.18.33.252 20:00, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

The rarity of Miraluka Jedi seems to be a point of ambuguity based on how the lore is interpreted by the reader. "While all Miraluka used the Force to sense the world around them, some Miralukans did have an increased sense-based aspect of the Force. When these Miraluka were identified, Miralukan educators and leaders encouraged such individuals to join the Luka Sene." (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Luka_Sene) When considering the way the Luka Sene article is presented, the implication seems to be that Miraluka from Alpheridies would tend toward joining the Luka Sene.

Original Homeworld? Edit

What was their original homeworld? If I believe correctly, there was only a colony on Katarr, before they moved to Alpher.

  • Katarr is believed to be the only Miraluka colony (ignoring the adopted homeworld of Alpheridies). Their world of origin is unknown. All that is known is that the planet of origin is inhabitable, if it still exists. Unsigned comment by 206.51.181.80 (talk • contribs).

red skin? Edit

all of the pics show them with red skin, can we add one thta doest to show thart not all of them have that? Jabberwockxeno 17:38, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

Extinct, or Just Endangered? Edit

In KOTOR2, Zez-Kai Ell says that the entire Miraluka race was wiped out by Darth Nihilus (not counting Visas, of course, as he was unaware of her existence.) Were they in fact rendered extinct by that event?

-- Gnostic 16:58, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
  • They were wiped out on Katarr, a colony world of the Miraluka. The population was still thriving on Alpheridies. Unsigned comment by 206.51.181.80 (talk • contribs).

Can they read? Edit

Can Miraluka see ink on paper?Gabora 06:23, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

when you apply ink to paper you are apply a physical object to another, it exsists physically although the rise is barely noticable by our sense of touch i would assume someone using hte force could read it. ralok 06:29, September 25, 2010 (UTC)
  • Funny thing that, when you consider everyone (or the vast majority of the civilized parts of the universe) seem to be using e-readers and such, meaning pen and paper are rarely shown to be used. I believe, but don't pin me on it, that the Miraluka "see" things the way the force sees them. It sees what is truly there, not what light tells our human eyes that is there. Pigmentation and other colour divining molecules are real, so I would say they could see everything perfectly, no matter the light conditions, but from a third person vision, rather then first person. It's as if they are looking over their own shoulder, aswell as over the shoulders of those living beings surrounding them. Also, while objects such as droids can not touch or power the force, they can be percieved by it. Beautifull examples for this are Yoda lifting a spacefighter from the swamp and jedi reaching out to the force to fly their fighters into battle.

Not being able to see colors/burned out sockets? Edit

Here's the thing: how come other non-Miraluka see colors through force sight, but Miraluka can't. Last I read from the developers KOTOR2, they showed force sight as black and white to differentiate it from normal sight for the player, but made no reference that the character saw through the force that way. However, outside of that game, no other source supports this? Plus, there are various sources show Miraluka seeing colors (Including the Old Republic comics) and even the RPG.

Also, only one Miraluka has been shown with burnt out sockets with no other one being shown that way. Also, other's have been described with either shallow sockets or no sockets at all. Plus, I have hear not reference of a Miraluka being able to create an illusion of eyes either?

Seems this is being based off a couple images in one comic and a game mechanic, it's a bit confusing? Brothejr 23:59, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Near-human Edit

Has it been decreed that Miraluka are simply "humanoid" rather than near-human? Doesn't that seem just a little absurd? Guardian Assassin 01:43, April 8, 2012 (UTC)

If it helps, on http://swtor.wikia.com/wiki/Miraluka it states: "Though sharing a common genetic history with Humans, Miraluka have evolved into a significantly different species, evidenced by the fact that they are born without eyes." Which would account for the ability for Miraluka to create viable offspring with human partners as evident in the case of Krynda Draay (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Krynda_Draay). The trouble with this source, however, is that it states that the evolution of their unique vision is due to the lack of light in the visible spectrum on Alpheridies. This may not be accurate to contemporary lore, as Alpheridies is the Miraluka's adopted homeworld, and not their planet of origin (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Alpheridies).

  • You can link to articles by placing two brackets around the name like this: [[Miraluka/Legends|Miraluka]]. I told you this above, but just to reiterate quickly, Wookieepedia is not a source. Research where that information came from originally. NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 14:13, September 20, 2012 (UTC)


Eyelids? Edit

I read the article through, and although I get that they have the eye sockets, the article never says anything about eyelids. Do they have them, or would they have been like with their eyes, and they evolved without them? I'm a bit confused about it. --71.207.146.7 08:59, January 16, 2013 (UTC)Um... a Star Wars nut

  • It appears not in this picture, but nothing has ever said they don't have eyelids and it's entirely possible that they just didn't show up in that portrait because it was a look of shock. In short, we can't say for sure one way or another in the article. NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 15:39, January 17, 2013 (UTC)


Dark Side Ailments Edit

"Those that fell to the dark side of the Force, however, took to the many ailments that came along with it. Their distortion of sight, in some cases, caused mass hysteria and visions, nightmares induced into reality, as hallucinations. Due to this, it was almost a natural fear for many to fall down the dark path."


This passage has neither a source nor evidence. The only example is Visas Marr, who survived what would become a Force Wound and was in proximity to Darth Nihilus, a Void in the Force. Other examples in both Legends and Canon (viz. Jerec, Tenth Brother, etc) demonstrate no evidence or this. Moreover, Force Sight gives no indication of this occurring, being mere observation, not prone to hysteria, visions, or distortion - in fact, the opposite may be suggested in the ability to clearly distinguish force presences and alignments.

Without a source, I shall remove it from the article. If one is found, however, the passage remains recorded here.
