A Lore-Appropriate Togruta Character
With the reach of the “known galaxy” expanding, all species mingle and pick up traits from eachother. A Togruta born on Coruscant will be far different than one born on their homeworld, Shili. But if you want to make a “canon” Togruta, follow these steps!
Togruta Naming Conventions
There is no set naming conventions for Togruta, but here are some examples from across the expanded universe.
According to this Togruta Name Generator , “Togruta names are very melodic, with a few guttural sounds mixed in here and there. Most names are 2 syllables long, but 3 syllable names aren’t uncommon. Their last names range from 1 to 3 syllables, but most are 2 syllables long as well.”
How to Roleplay as a Togruta
Your montrals are an essential part of your senses, as much as your eyes and ears. Don’t forget what you feel with them while you move about the world. You are connected to the world around you more than any other species – or you are severed, a broken Togruta. Most Togruta crave togetherness, and hate to be alone – that or they go against the grain of Togruta culture.
In-Game Codex: Togruta
Occasionally confused with Twi’leks, Togrutas are distinguished by multicolored skin pigmentation and large, hollow horns (similar in appearance to Twi’lek head-tails) that permit a Togruta to sense ultrasonic waves. These physical adaptations were required for Togrutas to endure and to hunt on their homeworld of Shili, which is dominated by large and deadly beasts. Togruta culture is tightly knit out of necessity, as individual survival there often depended on tribal unity. Because of their ingrained affinity for teamwork and togetherness, Togrutas are among the Republic’s most loyal and dependable citizens. Indeed, a higher-than-normal percentage of Togrutas exhibit powerful Force sensitivity and serve in the Jedi Order. Some scholars speculate that the Togrutas’ unique sensory adaptations and strong cultural bonds makes them more receptive to learning the ways of the Jedi.
