The Kel Dor, sometimes referred to as Kel Dorians, were a species hailing from the technological planet Dorin. They required masks to protect them when in oxygen-rich atmospheres. They were also known for their unique Force-using tradition, the Baran Do Sages.
Physiology and Culture
The Kel Dor were a tall, muscular race, typically of the same height and weight as Humans. Their skin ranged in color from peach to crimson red. Most had dark, black eyes, although some were born with silver irises, a mark that was often seen as a mark of affinity for the Force.
Due to Dorin having a unique atmosphere, composed of helium and a gas unique to their world, the Kel Dor had to wear an antiox breath mask and protective goggles whenever in different atmospheres. The breath mask also helped to amplify the Kel Dor's voice, as they must shout to produce any sound when out of their native atmosphere. Without their protective goggles, Kel Dor were considered effectively blind when away from Dorin.
The Kel Dor had heightened reflexes, a result of extra-sensory organs in their heads. As a species, they were thought to be typically quick and wise, but of a weaker constitution, when compared to other species.
The Kel Dor used the Force long before they joined the Galactic Republic and the Jedi. This proud Force tradition was known as the Baran Do Sages. The Baran Do Sages often acted as advisors to rich and powerful Kel Dor families.
Role in LotJ
While Kel Dor typically saw moral issues in black and white, they are even-tempered and kind. Kel Dor were noted for their hospitality, never turning away a stranger in need. Yet, Kel Dor had no compunctions about extreme punishments for any infraction against the law and will mete out swift justice.
Kel Dors innate sense of right leads many to some form of law enforcement, as a soldier, bounty hunter, diplomats or doctors.
Kel Dor can speak Galactic Basic.
