"Like Herglic on Mrlssti."
--An old Tapani saying that highlighted the comical size comparison between the two species
The Mrlssi or Mrlssti of Mrlsst in the Tapani sector were a species renowned throughout the sector as scholars and scientists.
Mrlssi were flightless avian humanoids, less than one meter tall on average. Their bodies were covered in gray feathers, while their head was bare except for a fringe of feathers covering the back of their head. Their head feathers were brown in young Mrlssi, but became more colorful with age.
Mrlssi should not be confused with the Mriss of Mrisst, in the GaTir system, who were also a small, scholarly race of flightless birds.
When they spoke in their native language, it was considered very musical. However, when they vocalized in Basic, many species found it grating. Mrlssi were not very adventurous and were rarely found off their home planet. When they did travel, they did so with a specific purpose and destination and quickly returned home. They were quick-witted and very curious and valued knowledge more than material possessions. Mrlssi figured themselves as great humorists, as humor was a key part of their societal structure. Despite this, offworlders tended to find Mrlssi humor to be complex and unintelligible. Common names within the Mrlssi culture included Crlisst Herssek, Kepor Dagwa, Krsslbel Waray, Pagda Luwa, and Virssl Jasst.
