Like the Yaka and the mysterious Iskalloni, the Marasans are a speicies of cyborged sentients. The marasans come from the Marasa Nebula, an expanse of energized gas that effectively cut the species off from the rest of the galaxy for thousands of years. The Marasans turned to technology to free them from their dark, chaotic world, and venture into the universe. However, technology has also led them to be subjugated by the Empire.
Marasans are large marsupials, with tubular bodies supported by muscular legs. They have long, thin arms with large, clumsy hands. Marasans have tiny eyes, supplemented by a pair of sensory stalks growing from the corners of their large mouths. A thin, silver band of electronic harware wraps around the base of the Marasan skull.

Cybernetic Astrogation: Marasans have a nav-computer built into their brains, giving them a +1D bonu to Astrogation rolls when outside Marasa Nebula, and a +2D bonus when within the nebula. They never have to face the "no nav computer" penalty when astrogating.
Computerized Mind: Marasans can solve complex problems in their minds in half the time required for other species. In combat round situations, this means they can perform two Knowledge or Technical skills as if they were one action. However, any complex verbal communications or instructions take twice as long and failing the skill roll by any amount means that the Marasan has made a critical mistake in his or her explanation. Marasans can communicate cybernetically over a range of up to 100 meters; to outside observors, they are communicating silently.
Cyborged Beings: Marasans suffer stun damage (add +1D to the damage value of the weapon) from any ion or DEMP weaponry or other electrical fields which adversely affect droids. If the Marasan is injured in the attack, any First Aid or Medicine rolls are at +5 for a Marasan healer and +10 for a non-Marsan healer.
