There are plenty of unique races in the Star Wars galaxy, but Kaminoans have always struck me as some of the most unique, and not because they look like alien thermometers. It’s because they strike a completely believable blend between peace-keeping and war-funding; calm and yet devious.
They are a cerebral people, responsible for Clone Troopers and thus Stormtroopers, as well as Boba Fett. Can you imagine what these guys talk about at the dinner table? While the tidal waves rage around them and their emotionless faces sip on green drinks, because this is clearly a race that doesn’t eat solid food?
Where’s that rebellious Kaminoan that befriended the Fetts and thus wanted to strive out on his own? There is such a quietness to this race that needs a loudness. They hate imperfection, so give me that imperfect Kaminoan. The closest thing we get is Kina Ha, a Kaminoan jedi with a disdain for her race’s stances on most things. Plus, she is 3,000 years old, which can provide some interesting perspectives on most things. And she hangs out with Mandalorians.
All sound like a recipe for success.
