“Jabba - you're a wonderful Human being!”—Han Solo
Humans were the Galaxy's most numerous and politically dominant sentient species, with millions of major and minor colonies Galaxy-wide. Believed by most to have originated on the galactic capital of Coruscant, they in fact hailed from Vitea , a massive world strong with the light side of the force , that was eventually lost to time. It was believed that the Celestials were physically remarkably similar to the Humans, and it is also believed that the former race altered the DNA of the original Vitean Humans to make them more like the Celestials themselves. Humans could be found anywhere, engaged in many different pursuits: spacers, mercenaries, smugglers, merchants, Sith troopers, assassins, farmers, crime lords, laborers and many others. Since Humans were the most common sentient species, they were often considered to be a standard or average to which the biology, psychology, and culture of other species were compared to.
Like most of the Galaxy's sentient species, Humans had a torso, two legs, two arms, and one head. Other sentient species with a body type roughly similar to Humans were often referred to as humanoids, since Humans were the most common example. Their heads had two eyes, one nose for breathing and smelling, and a mouth for eating, breathing and communicating. Human arms had five-fingered hands for manipulation, mirrored by their legs' five-toed feet. Also, like most species, they came in two sexes, male and female, although there were cases of hermaphrodites as well.
Unlike other mammalian species, such as Wookiees, they had only a light covering of body hair, with males being hairier than females. Most of their body hair was concentrated on the head and, in the case of males, face. This hair was grown, cut, and styled for aesthetic or ritualistic reasons, as with the elaborate hairstyles of the Royal Naboo and the traditional braids of Human Jedi Padawans. Older Humans often suffered from the loss of the hair on their head. The facial hair grown by adult males could also be grown, styled, or shaved completely.
Despite overall physiological uniformity, baseline Humans varied greatly in appearance. Their hair color ranged from blond to dark, sometimes with hues of red, changing to gray or white as years passed. Diversity in skin color was also seen, with various grades from pale yellow (Cinde Moun), fair (Jasca Ducato), and to dark (Mace Windu). Their eyes came in various colors, including, but not limited to, shades of blue, green, or brown, and in rare instances, yellow and in the rarest of cases red, for example Erana Koytas, red eyes were caused by a genetic malfuction and was one of the rarest disorders in the galaxy. Diversity in appearance was seen on many Human planets, and none of these features were known to have been specifically traced to specific isolated populations on any planets.
