Cereans established contact with the rest of the galaxy shortly before the Galactic Republic was transformed into the Empire, swiftly gaining fame as expert astrogators, cryptographers, and economists. Few patterns or trends escape the notice of a Cerean.
Cerean society is matriarchal, and the Cerean culture's traditional values emphasize living in harmony with nature and minimizing any impact on the environment from technology. The peaceful philosophies of The Jedi appeal to Cereals, and many join the Order.
Cerean Characteristics Edit
Personality: Cereans tend to be calm, rational, and extremely logical.
Physical Description: Cereans average about 2 meters tall, with elongated craniums housing binary brains. They have a maturity rate and life span similar to those of Humans.

Languages: Cereans speak, read, and write both Cerean and Basic.
Example Names: Ki-Adi, So Leet, Sylvn, Ti-Dal, Maj-Odo.
Adventurers: Cereans who become adventurers do so in spite of their peaceful traditions. Still, when a cause or situation leads down this path, a Cerean tries to keep these traditions intact, avoiding aggression when possible. The binary brain allows a Cerean to constantly weigh both sides in any disagreement and give two points of view equal consideration. This ability extends even to issues surrounding The Force, and a Cerean Jedi or Force Prodigy often contemplates the Light Side and the Dark Side simultaneously.
Cerean Species Traits Edit
Cereans share the following Species Traits:
- Ability Modifiers: Cereans have a +2 bonus to both their Intelligence and their Wisdom, but suffer a -2 penalty to their Dexterity. Cereans are bright and intuitive but less coordinated than most other species.
- Medium Size: As Medium creatures, Cereans have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
- Speed: Cerean have a base speed of 6 squares.
- Intuitive Initiative: Despite their general lack of coordination, Cereans' reaction speed is superior to that of most other Species. A Cerean may choose to reroll any Initiative check, but the result of the reroll must be accepted even if it is worse.
- Conditional Bonus Feat: A Cerean with Initiative as a trained skill gains Skill Focus (Initiative) as a bonus feat.
- Automatic Languages: All Cereans can speak, read, and write both Basic and Cerean.
