Is the plural Zabrak, Zabraks, or Zabraki? --Imp 20:28, 14 Jul 2005 (UTC)

  • I am no native speaker, but I think Zabraks does not sound bad. - TopAce 18:57, 14 Nov 2005 (UTC)
  • it is zabrak (EXAMPLE: there were two zabrak) ... zabraki is the zabrak language....

Should Iridorian be redirecting here? It's not a spelling mistake for Iridonian, but appears to be a separate group. Of course, the only Iridorians I'm aware of (the vicious mercenaries seen briefly in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic) are always masked. — Silly Dan 20:24, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)

  • Iridorian definately should not redirect here. IIRC they are a mercenary group, similar to Mandalorians and unrelated to Iridonian Zabraks. QuentinGeorge 20:53, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • OK. Have made Iridorian a separate article. — Silly Dan 21:38, 11 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Name Edit

Would this species by any chance be the same as that of "The Great Zorbak" from The Star Wars Holiday Special? I doubt it, but the names are similar, and the holiday special has been known to mess up the naming, but mean the same thing. (For instance when it called Chewie's home planet "Kazook," but it was really called "Kashyyyk.") Adamwankenobi 12:54, 8 Nov 2005 (UTC)


Did I miss a Zabrak sighting in that game? - Sikon [Talk] 19:16, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

KOTOR Comic ZabrakEdit

  • Although I don't own any of the comics, I remember thumbing through a rather recent issue of the Knights of the Old Republic comic and coming upon a Zabrak thug with red skin—one of the few examples outside Maul. Cutch 00:01, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Compatable? Edit

Are human and zabrak genes compatable? Are there any known half-human/half-zabraks? I've heard two theories to zabrak evolution, one being that they're simply near-humans with horns, the other that they are somehow evolved from lizards. Pahya

  • I would say that they are, but I don't think that Zabraks are near-human though. They have a very similar body form and in real life there have been many hybrids like mules for examples and ligers so I would think that they can. Just is not very common. In order to be able to reproduce, I think they have to have very similar body form and type like a horse and a donkey although the have very distinctive differencesDarth Aztec
    • I would doubt it, considering the extent of the internal-anatomy differences. A system that functions on two hearts versus a system with one heart probably have great differences. Yes, I know that Kaysil Verwood married a human, but who's to say the Verwoods have children, or if they do, that they didn't have to adopt? Teris Shae 15:44, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

I know it's not as major as having an extra heart but zeltrons are near-humans with an extra liver, so I wouldnt rule out the possibilty of inter-breeding.

They are. Dathomirians is the cross breading of female humans and male irodonians.--Zabrae (talk) 22:18, November 8, 2015 (UTC)Zabrae

picture Edit

that picture that says that it is bao dur is wrong, one it is on tatioone and two, it looks like a zabrak from galaxys. i'm gonna delete, is that ok?

  • No need to delete it; I changed the caption. Also, don't forget to sign your posts with four tildes: ~~~~ - \\Captain Kwenn// Ahoy! 23:34, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Near-Human? Edit

Is there a canonical source which establishes that Zabraks (and thus their probable relatives according to the New Essential Guide to Alien Species, the Elomin) are Near-Humans? Or is this speculation based on the fact that they look like Near-Humans? —Silly Dan (talk) 03:41, 9 December 2006 (UTC)

  • If people think Zabraks are Near-human only because they look human to some extent, they would be wrong. I think they classify them as near human only becuase in their opinion they look near human. They are not since they have many distinctive differences that would seperate them from near humans. If we go only by looks, then many other non human species would be classified as near human. Like Twi'leks for example, they look human to some extent too, but like Zabraks have certain differences that seperate them from humans. Darth Aztec
    • You're wrong. Twi'leks have no hair, come in a rainbow of skin colors, and have lekku, whereas Zabrak look nearly human, save for that they have horns. If a Zabrak wore a hat, you couldn't tell him from a human. A Twi'lek, on the other hand, could never be passed off as human.Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).
      • Looks have nothing to do with it. Korsa3 20:24, June 15, 2011 (UTC)

No eyebrows?Edit

A couple pics in this very article look to have eyebrowed Zabraks. 08:34, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

    • Just what I was thinking! Probably a distinct sub-species trait, though that's fanon/speculation until we hear otherwise from an official source. TIE Defender 03:49, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

They certaintly don't look right with eyebrows, but that's just my opinion --Darth Timor 16:39, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

        • One things for sure- Maris Brood HAS eyebrows.

Jaden Korr?Edit

Jaden Korr is an ambiguously gendered and race character from the game Jedi Academy, who could possibly be a Zabrak female. Is it worth including that fact in the notable Zabrak list (with an appropriate note, obviously)? Or is "possibly" not good enough. For that matter, are any of the options on the game any closer to being cannon than any race/gender combination at all? Unsigned comment by Jawajoey (talk • contribs).

  • Possibly isn't good enough. --Imperialles 00:17, 24 June 2007 (UTC)

age Edit

does anyone know how old a zabrak can get?--hicups0002 05:07, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

  • Alien Anthology said that Zabraks were more long-lived than humans: A Human is old at 60 years old and venerable at 80, while a Zabrak is old at 75 and venerable only at 91. However, Ultimate Alien Anthology overwrites this, explaining than a Zabrak is old at 56 and venerable at 70. - Skippy Farlstendoiro 07:42, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
    • so they have shorter lifespans than humans, why isnt it listded on the side bar like the human article?!?--hicups0002 23:37, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
      • Sidebar lifespan seems to indicate the maximum age in normal conditions, while my sources only point the age when they become very old: A Human is venerable at 80 (UAA), but can still live until 120 (source?). A zabrak is venerable at 70, but I don't know the maximum age. Anybody? - Skippy Farlstendoiro 08:04, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
        • Because of their anatomy I would think they live longer than humans, consider their two hearts (And you know how long a human can live if they have a good heart), their will to thrive and live, their determination, they would live longer. I don't know about the UAA by I think the AA is the more acurate one. Darth Matas 22:53, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
          • Can we say that two hearts are proof of longevity OR the lack thereof? Remember that if one heart has a problem, then the entire Zabrak circulatory system suffers. Apparently their hearts are not redundant, but must work together or else. Teris Shae 15:44, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
            • But that's not really what I'm talking about. Forget if they have a problem. If they are strong, they will thrive.Darth Matas 14:31, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

This may just be a silly point to make, but Eeth Koth at the year of his death would be about 78, but he doesnt look that old. If they are near-humans (sort of) wouldn't their hair go grey? I would say that they live longer than humans, because for Eeth to be an oldie, he sure looks young. -Jimminy, 10:20pm, 9th Feb 2008

  • Does the fact that someone (any species) is a force-sensitive coincide with their lifespan, though? 18:42, April 26, 2010 (UTC)


Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it true that this article says that all Zabraks get face tattooes, while the Darth Maul entry says he got his tattooes because he became a Sith. Isn't that a contradiction?--Sithman8 16:46, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

  • Darth Maul has tattoos all over his body though, rather than just his face. -- I need a name (Complain here) 18:01, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
    • Zabrak recieve facial tatoos on their rite of passage. Darth Maul got his because of his Sith affiliation.

Lizard or Ape?Edit

So are the evolved from apes or lizards, im sure i read somewhere they evolved from a type of horned ape? this might have been in the new essential guide to aliens

  • If they evolved from lizards, they would be reptiles then, and since they're not, I would say that they evolved from horned mammalsDarth Matas 22:21, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes But does it say anyway that they evolved from mammals? or are mammals?

  • You can logically infer that they are mamals due to various clues of them but I believe in Guide to Species, it says they're mamals15:41, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
  • If the females produce breastmilk, they are mammals. Case closed. 04:38, September 9, 2009 (UTC)

Sith Coincidence Edit

Is it just me, or do Zabrak seem to make really good Sith? I mean, in Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, there were 3 zabrak sith (Sirak, Llokay, Yevra), with Sirak thought to be the Sith'ari. Also, the Zabrak Sith that were in the new sith order (or however that's called), as well as Darth Maul himself. Comments? Phrawger928 19:28, 24 February 2008 (UTC)Phrawger928

  • Drew Karpyshyn's just an idiot and wanted to make a few characters deliberatly reminiscent of Darth Maul - instead of doing something creative. As usual. --The truth hurts... 23:38, 7 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Why/how would wanting to make new characters that are reminiscent of fan-favorite old characters make him an "idiot" as you so intelligently put it? And in regards to the whole "the truth hurts" thing, you might want to invest some time in revisiting the "opinion vs fact" part of your 3rd grade curriculum.

Engineers Edit

Many Zabraks seem to be tech specialists or engineers, as well as Jedi or Sith. --Shon Kon Ray 00:20, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

  • That seems to be true, but maybe thats just because those are the few Xabrak characters we know of. (Darth Maul, Bao-Dur, etc.) Considering the whole Zabrak racee, I'm sure there's probably a more equal ratio of engineers and jedi to other occupations. Well, that's what I personally think. = ) Aqua Unasi 21:48, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

zabrak skin colors? Edit

not to be nitpicky but when was there a black zabrak?it says in the article that there skin color varied from "Pale to dark brown, red and black, orange and yellow" but ive never even heard of a black zabrak,i have however seen alot of people mistake darth maul for being black skinned with red tattoos.--hicups0002 06:04, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

.Well in the Old Republic, there is a Republic soldier who is a dark skinned Zabrak which shares the facial characteristics of black people. He's even voiced by a black guy. I just don't remember that Zabrak's name! --Starwarslife96 (talk) 02:46, February 10, 2014 (UTC)Starwarslife96

Iridonia? Edit

I was under the impression Iridonia was a primary colony world and Zabrak was the homeworld. I understand the new esential guide says that the species originates from Iridonia but there are MANY mistakes in that book relating to height primarily but also several others (in addition to a fixation on the battlefront 2 501st story mode).SargeLIVES 00:22, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Ok after a lookover I stand corrected i see multiple sources coincided on the Iridonian origenSargeLIVES 00:33, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Darth Maul Edit

Why havent you anything else about darth maul being a zabrak? Beside putting his name under famous section Unsigned comment by Darth Strages (talk • contribs).

Fanon? Edit

Is the fact about Zabraks having two hearts not a fact at all? I don't have the The New Essential Guide to Alien Species, but if anybody does, or if anybody could find a source that corrects the recent revision that removes it... I need the facts straight. Thanks. Doran (I'm friendly!) 23:18, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

  • I have the Guide, it is canon. 04:41, September 9, 2009 (UTC)

First identified? Edit

When where the Zabrak first identified as the "Zabrak"? If I remember correctly, Darth Maul's species was never mentioned in the movie, so the name had to been provided from some EU source or something. Can someone answer this.

Inconsistency Edit

This infromation is totally different then the infromation given on Eeth Koth's page. We should compare them and make them more alike. They both say the species come from different planets and can do different things!!Artimas Hunter 02:07, January 28, 2010 (UTC)Artimas Hunter

  • What do you mean? Just because Eeth Koth comes from Nar Shadaa, that doesn't necessarily mean that the Zabrak species is native to that moon. ~ SavageBob 02:16, January 28, 2010 (UTC)

Darth Maul a Zabrak? Edit

According to The Life and Legend of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Maul is an Iridonian Zabrak. So why is he being listed as a Zabrak?

  • An Iridonianis a Zabrak. It may be referring to him as a Zabrak that was born (or atleast) raised on Iridonia. Although with the upcoming Clone Wars episodes, that looks like it will change. Korsa3 02:44, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

How does this conflict with the clone wars??

In the clone wars, there is a small colony of Zabrak on Dathomir. And in the NEXT EPISODE after that, they explicitly say that most Zabrak are from Iridonia. (- -) 06:50, February 7, 2011 (UTC)


I believe that the Dathomirians, being Human-Zabrak hybrids, should be mentioned in the article. The characters Darth Maul, Savage Opress, Mother Talzin, and Asajj Ventress are all Dathomirians, so this be mentioned, with the latter two added to the list of notable Zabraks. I have made the necessary changes to the article, and if anyone disagrees, I guess they can revert the edits I've made.--Shadow34 00:27, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

Some help please? Edit

I edited the Zabrak page to include the fact that it says on the SWTOR website that Zabraks have two hearts. However, I don't know how to add a source, so could someone please do this for me? You many need this - the link to the source:

Zabrak and the Mother Machine Edit

I was thinking about that while I was going through that particular SWTOR quest: does the Mother Machine necessarily tell the truth? Weren't the Rakatan well-known for exaggerating the might of their technology? LelalMekha 14:35, February 13, 2012 (UTC)

  • Yeah, the Mother Machine dun goofed when she said she created the Twi'leks (they were around a good while before the Infinite Empire). It's possible the Zabrak existed before as well. Or maybe it's just another one of those contradictions that always appear throughout the EU...--CrazySeaOtter 06:00, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

near human? Edit

doesnt the in game codex for the old republic state that they are near human? or is it somethign else . . . I am pretty sure the old republic states they are near human at some point. ralok (talk) 05:37, August 15, 2012 (UTC)

  • "Zabrak are near-human sentients from the planet Iridonia renowned for their independence and wandering spirit." The codex does say that. NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 06:04, August 15, 2012 (UTC)
    • Oh my god I was finally right about something D: ralok (talk) 06:56, August 15, 2012 (UTC)
