Star Wars: Confederacy Era
The Cerrim (pronounced ‘Seh-rimm’) are a species of tall, slim humanoids who come from a system
well beyond what was once known as the Unknown Regions. Bordering the edge of our Galaxy
and another, they were unfortunate enough to discover the seemingly derelict starship that contained
The Shade, and it was that discovery that led to not only the enslavement of their entire race but the
spreading of The Contagion.
Those that exist in the Galaxy today are the survivors of The Contagion, individuals who still hold a
memory of the terrible things they were forced to do whilst under the influence of The Shade and –
for the most part – are plagued by guilt and remorse. This leads to considerable isolationism on
their part and even though many places and peoples of the Galaxy understand and accept that they
were an unwilling pawn in the plans of The Shade, many still do not trust them and tend to avoid
them. Others go out of their way to persecute or even hunt and kill the Cerrim, but such practices
tend to be rare inside the Rim Worlds.
