Although the Omwati are not a branch of Humanity, the external differences are extremely small. Omwati skin is a bluish color, and their eyes are generally blue or black. The size of an adult Omwati borders that of a Human, although their morphology is typically slightly frailer, especially among female Omwati. There are very few Omwati with a stout physiology. Their most striking characteristic is their "hair", which appears to be made of small, diaphanous feathers of an iridescent color. Omwati do not have any other hair.
The Omwati rarely left their homeworld until Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin discovered their potential use as scientists for the Empire. He found that if young Omwati were forced to endure the right amount of pressure at the right times, their minds could become incredibly malleable and brilliant. This discovery led to the creation of the Death Star and later the Sun Crusher.
After Grand Moff Tarkin's devastating visit to Omwat, searching for scientists, the Omwati species was near extinction. However, one village of the Omwati escaped destruction by hiding underground from the Galactic Empire.
Qwi Xux is perhaps the best known Omwati. She was a researcher at the Imperial Maw Installation and a principal designer of the Death Star. Another Omwati was the Jedi Tannis.
