Chiss

The Chiss, a race that dwells in the Unknown Regions, are a humanoid people that have pale blue skin, black hair, and red reflective or fluorescent eyes.

Sith

The Sith "race" is an interesting case, in that its ancestry includes a non-human alien group that was genetically tampered with by a group of human Dark Jedi that settled on their homeworld, to escape from the Republic. The intermixing of human and Sith bloodlines, through the use of what became known as Sith Alchemy, created the Sith, with their characteristic red skin and long tentacle "beards".

Zeltron

Zeltron are near humans and bear a similar appearance, save for their pink skins, which may or may not be a result of their sun's highly radioactive rays.
