The Kiri come from the planet Kirin located in the Unknown Regions. Their planet was once under the control of the Isen Star Empire, but now they are a New Republic world. They have violet skin. There have been reports of other skin colors, though it is rare. Despite the fact that their planet has a relatively non-hostile environment, they have a lot in common with the Zabrak of Iridonia. They have extremely strong will power, which makes them superb for both Special Ops agents and Jedi Knights. Aside from their will power they also have the unique ability to survive in almost no atmosphere for an extended length of time.
