Lashunta Coloring

So what exactly is the range of colors a Lashunta can come in?

Pathfinder has them as mostly white and light pink from what I can find

This Lashunta from Children of the Void (2008) is maybe light pink but looks fairly Caucasian.

This Lashunta from the Gamemastery guide (2010) is flat out Caucasian-looking.

This Lashunta from the cover of Distant Worlds (2012) is also white especially in comparison to the two creatures.

This Lashunta from People of the Stars (2014) is far more pink than her predecessors.

The we flash forward to Starfinder (2017) where we only have two Lashunta to go off of.

First is our lovely Iconic Technomancer, Raia. She is grayish-green from what I can tell. She appears to be wearing makeup and has a glow from the Hologram on her arm making it hard to pin down the color. Either way, she is not white.

The only other Lashunta in the book is a mechanic. She is more gray than Raia and also certainly not Caucasian.

The ones from the Lashunta Page which I can only find the female of online (surprise surprise) are more pale brown than gray or white.

So what is the range? Are there black Lashuntas? Are there more fantastical colors like blue or full green?

Anyone have any better sources than I can find?


dont forget teh male lashunta that's next to the other lashunta in the rulebook

There's a male lashunta sniper in the Pact Worlds section of the campaign setting chapter. And a few others scattered here and there in various rules chapters, I think.

I didn't. I just couldn't get a good linkable picture of him. He's also the same coloring as the female.

On pg. 429? I think that's actually Raia though it is a clearer shot. That has her as grayish white.

Well, given the backstory for the Lashunta, I would expect their skin coloration to tend towards camouflage colors. . . albeit camouflage by Castovelian standards.

That's an interesting thought. They are slightly insectile with their antennae so having skin match environment is feasible. Since Castrovel is a jungle, the idea of them having their skin match sunlight intake so it being like that theory about Human skin tone evolution is right out. They would be black in Pathfinder instead of white. So your conjecture is more likely.

So them being white or light pink means that the environment of Castrovel would have something white for them to blend into. The planet is called "The Green" so they should be greener I think.

Then again, they now have the bioengineering to control what subspecies a child turns to so the idea that they can change skin tone to whatever they'd like it is also valid.

I would like to mention they hail from the same home world that the elves originally came from. This being said they could easily share a common ancestry with elves and merely differ due to divergent evolution. This being said, their skin tones might simply mirror the variety that the elves possess, albeit with the addition of the colorful facial markings (and of course antennae). I mean it makes sense, they're also a race known for their beauty and being captivating even to other races, they have a deep respect for the balance of nature, and are gifted in magic (though psionic instead of arcane).

...Also they stepped in to take the elves' place as a player race...

As far as I'm concerned, in my games I will be treating them as if this was the case because it makes sense to me. For this reason I've also stated they all have elven ears as opposed to the humanesque ones they are depicted with.

Edit: Basically any normal elf skin tone, and as for the facial markings I'd say they run all colors.


Well there are Jungle Elves in Mwangi and I believe they are more dark-skinned though not Drow. So that should mean that the Jungle planet of Castrovel would produce dark-skinned Lashunta and Elves yet they haven't. It's a strange puzzle.

I guess I could just go with whatever I want and sweet-talk my GM into just going with it.

There is a non-Raia Lashunta on pages:

31
34
39
48
66
81
109
124
156
328-9
481

They seem to have greys, browns, yellows, and reds, with dark and light variations, and variable color stripes as an accent.

Their face stripes appear to be natural, like their face spikeys, both of which were probably added to differentiate them from humans. Many species in Path/Starfinder can have darker skin tones, so the same likely goes for lashuntas. They may not necessarily be the same as elves, halflings, or humans. Any way the coloring works out, it is all super sexy.

Thank you very much! This is what I was looking for. It seems like I have a lot more options now.


Sudden question-are any of these Korasha? They all seem Damaya.


The Lashunta Mechanic is a Korasha I believe.

Crayons. I think Lashunta prefer to color with Crayolas.
