Biology and CultureEdit
Kushibans were small rabbit-like sentient beings that lived on the remote planet of Kushibah in the Outer Rim. Distinguishing features included large eyes, floppy ears, and a long tail. They were capable of walking on either their hind legs or on all fours, though to move more quickly in a run or a charge, they had to run with all four appendages. On their hind legs they stood at 0.5 meters tall, with an extra 0.3 meters worth of tail. They were also a species that had a natural affinity to the Force, though it was in such a calm nature that even other Force-users often passed by a Kushiban without realizing the inherit Force potential within the small species.
While often mistaken for cute pets, they were actually intelligent beings with a complex culture as well as both a written and spoken language. Rather than paws, they had hands with opposable thumbs and feet. As a means of communication, a Kushiban's fur changed color in correlation to its mood. A Kushiban in a calm, normal state of emotions was white, while a Kushiban in the deepest of despairs was totally black. A member of this species were noted as being venerable at the age of 110 years.
The Kushiban were mainly farmers and weavers and were famous for their hand-woven textiles which involved growing silkweed and combining it with fur they brushed from their coats daily and then spinning it with thread. The thread would then be used to weave cloth and tapestries in a wide variety of colors.
