Why are Zelosians on the Near-humans page? Honestly, can you classify them as near-human if they are plants? The likelihood of a plant species looking exactly like humans is stretching it as it is, but their internal structure must be completely different. I think they belong in the humanoid category.Darth Ceratis 01:33, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

  • The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia lists them as "[a] near-human species from Zelos II... Instead of blood, their veins contained a form of chlorophyll sap, leading to the belief that they were descended from plant life." It sounds like it is unconfirmed that they are actually plants.

    • Actually, WEG makes it sound like they are plants, but most people are IGNORANT of this secret, and thus wrongly mistake them as near-humans. Sorta like the Toka were mistaken as near-humans because nobody realized their secretJustinGann 07:38, 12 February 2009 (UTC)
      • I wasn't able to find mention of them in Alien Encounters, but in Planets of the Galaxy, Volume 2 it states: "The greatest difference between Zelosians and standard Human stock is that Zelosians are descended from intelligent plant life; there is no concrete proof of this, but many Zelosian biologists believe they were genetically engineered beings since the odds of naturally evolving to this form are so low." It's not concrete that they're descended from plants; they're potentially genetically engineered. And it would seem more likely that a human offshoot would develop the saplike blood than a plant would develop anthropomorphic characteristics. Since it's left vague, I don't think the article should specify their origin other than what it's believed to be, i.e. descended from plants or genetically engineered.

Anyone think how stupid this race sounds? Edit

Was the person who made this species on crack? Liquid chlorophyll? Sugar like alcohol? - It should be rated similar to the vong, tbh. Chlorophyll is a pigment, and sugar is a universal way that organisms get their energy. Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).02:06, 5 May 2007

    • I do agree on the slight stupidity of it. It should be actually chloroplast, not chlorophyll what they have in their blood. While I realise that chlorophyll is technically canon, it simply wrong and thus I suggest a change. Other than that, I find them to be an interesting concept, and the bright green eyes would be a possibilty if they indeed had chlorophyll instead of blood. Mislaav 13:23, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
  • I don't think it's stupid at all. They sound kind of like the Forest of Cheem from Doctor Who.

Plants with no roots or leaves? Edit

trillions of plants cannot live without roots or leaves. Roots help the plant get water, and the leaves help the plant get nutrients from the sun to make food and sugar for the plant itself. --Superscaryguy 14:50, April 29, 2011 (UTC)
