Starweirds are a species of uncorporeal humanoids found only in the vacuum of the space. The creatures appear to space men while they are repairing their starships in space, or aboard vessels traveling through hyperspace. The Starweirds are tall and gaunt, have long and sharpened talons, wild white hair, and glowing eyes. They are considered a mysterious species, and some Jedi hypothesized that they are physical manifestations of the dark side of the Force. A starweird will choose one target and focuses on the individual and not let it go until it kills him. The species are capable of use the Force, such as the Force powers of Drain Energy, Force Grip, Force Lighting, and Force Sight.
