Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Legacy Era Campaign Guide

Players in a Legacy Era Campaign have many Species open to them, including the dread Yuuzhan Vong. With the exception of a few Species that have fallen into obscurity, such as the Massassi or the Rakata, there are few, if any, races, that are inappropriate for The Legacy Era. Species that had not yet been discovered or integrated into the galaxy during the Clone Wars or the Galactic Civil War have now been present in the galaxy at large for over a century. Moreover, the Yuuzhan Vong, who less than a century ago invaded and ravaged the galaxy, are now free to pursue other Destinies (Though they remain subject to prejudice).

Under Palpatine's Galactic Empire, many Species were subjected as a part of the Sith Lord's humanocentric campaign. Wookiees and Mon Calamari were enslaved, and throughout The Core Worlds non-Humans were discriminated against as lesser beings. This is not the case during The Legacy Era, at least not entirely. Although the Empire under Darth Krayt imposes tyranny on planets, it treats all Species more or less equally. Species that are singled out, such as the Mon Calamari, are done so only as a punishment for actions against the Empire. In such cases, members of an entire Species pay the price for the rebellion of the few.

Within the Empire ruled by Darth Krayt and the Empire-in-exile ruled by Roan Fel, non-Humans can rise to positions of prominence. The Sith Lords themselves hail from a number of Species, and many high-ranking Imperial officers are non-Humans as well. Despite this general acceptance of all Species within the Empire, a few hard-line traditionalists still hold onto the old prejudices. These Imperial bureaucrats are usually small in number, but they often surround themselves with like-minded allies, leading to small pockets of anti-alien sentiment even within the larger cosmopolitan Galactic Empire.
