Miraluka v2.0
The Miraluka are a near-human species that lack eyes, retaining only vestigial eye sockets, perceiving their surroundings by sensing the slight Force vibrations emanated from all objects. Though Miraluka are all technically Force Sensitive, an individual’s ability to harness the Force for other than sight, varies greatly. Miraluka are not concerned with appearing human, but prefer not to draw attention to themselves when traveling, often with decorative cloth.

The Miraluka migrated to Alpheridies millennia ago when their original homeworld was rendered uninhabitable. For nearly four thousand years an uncountable number of Miraluka joined the Jedi order, participating in many of the Orders major battles. Miraluka, unsuited to becoming full-fledged Jedi served the Order as teachers and administrators.

Miraluka are thoughtful, cautious, and deliberative, showing little interest in personal gain or glory. In Miraluka society, many wear a headband, mask, or similar concealing headwear. The Miraluka are a close-knit race, referring to one another as "brothers" and members of a great family. Many Miraluka believe in the Greater Force, worshiping Ashla and Bogan, not believing in good or evil.

Miraluka Sith are rare, the species' outlook on life and the Force are largely incompatible with Sith teachings. However, as with all who feel the Force, a fall into darkness is possible. Those falling to the dark side had many ailments, chief among those is a distortion of sight. Sometimes causing mass hysteria, visions, and nightmares induced into reality as hallucinations. Due to this, many Miraluka had a natural fear of falling to the dark side.

With the Rise of the Empire, the Miraluka suffered terribly. The Jedi Purge wiped out thousands of Miraluka, survivors attempted to hide, blending into Galactic society, others attempted to join the rebellion. Miraluka who were caught were often pressed into service to the Empire. Those strong in the Force were often tortured and coerced into falling to the dark side, many destroyed themselves rather than embrace the dark side and possibly endure the horrors of distorted vision.

By 14 ABY, the Miraluka began to rejoin galactic society and joining the New Republic.
