Comments: A race of discipline, the Chiss are bureaucratic yet semi-dictatorial, and use technology similar to that of the Galactic Alliance (New Republic). Controlling most of what the rest of the galaxy considers the “Unknown Regions”, they keep probes and sentinels out to scan their space and store their information in a low-tech but very secure form. Not exactly xenophobic, they are wary of other species, but would welcome individuals into their society, if they showed the right credentials.
On Csilla, the Chiss live under the ice to escape the bitter cold of the surface. Even so, heating is required and they use classically Chiss technology to do this as efficiently as possible. Most of the hallways and vast corridors through the ice are natural products of glacier flow.
