The Chiss were a tall, blue-skinned Near-Human civilization from the planet Csilla in the Unknown Regions. They shared most similarities with humans, though their blue skin and glowing red eyes were the most notable differences.

Their skin tone and eyes grew darker depending on the oxygen content of their surroundings. The more oxygen present, the more intense the color of their eyes and skin tone. Their blue skin, jet black hair and red eyes generally commanded attention once they were in a crowd of regular humanoids, and these features made them physically striking and instantly recognizable.

Chiss names consisted of a long tripartite structure with three sections. Family names were first and last, given name the middle. Chiss who ventured into the galaxy often abbreviated their name by taking their middle name, along with the last sound of the family name before it and the beginning sound of the following family name. For example, Qos’ant’osond becomes Santos.
