The first species to come to the Citadel, the Asari originally proposed the formation of the Citadel Council to promote peace and stability in the galaxy.
While technically Asari don't have a sex, they appear as a race of beautiful women. They procreate through a form of parthenogenesis that allows them to attune their nervous system to any species and of any gender. This process may or may not involve physical contact, depending on the individual the Asari is attempting to mate with.
Personality: Asari can live to be over 1,000 years old and have three stages to their life: Maiden, Matron, and Matriarch. In the Maiden stage, Asari seek to go out and learn as much about the galaxy as they can. Military service is also common in this stage. In the Matron stage, Asari seek to mate with interesting partners in order to have daughters of their own. The Matriarch stage grants an Asari great power and influence over other Asari as they will defer to the wisdom of the Matriarchs in times of crisis.
Physical Description: Asari have no body hair and blue skin that grows in hue as they age. They always appear as beautiful women.
Homeworld: Thessia
Languages: Asari speak, read, and write Asari and Basic.

Asari share the following traits:
Ability Modifiers: +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, -2 Strength, -2 Constitution
Medium Size: As Medium creatures, Asari have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Speed: Asari base speed is 30 feet.
Sexual appeal: An Asari gains a +2 to all diplomacy checks thanks to the fact that all races find them attractive.
Mind Meld: Asari have a natural ability to attune their nervous systems to those of another nonmindless being, which they evolved for reproductive purposes. In order to perform a mind-meld, the asari must be within 5 feet of a willing target. Establishing the mind-meld is a full-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity, and the asari must concentrate in order to maintain it. Once the mind meld has been established, the asari and their target share images and thoughts.
Biotic Affinity: While not every asari is a biotic, their ability to consciously manipulate their nervous systems makes those of them who are more powerful. An asari with biotic abilities gain a +2 Miscellanies modifier to any one biotic skill.
Mixed Heritage: Asari often use their unique method of reproduction to absorb traits of other species into their offspring. Asari may choose to possess any single special quality of any other species to reflect this, with the exception of ability bonuses. Pure asari - that is, asari born from a union of two asari - gain the Skill Focus feat instead, applied to a skill of their choice.
