Humans are a sentient, sapient species in the fictional Star Wars universe. They are the most numerous and dominant species, with apparently millions of major and minor colonies galaxywide. The presence of ordinary humans in the story is important dramatically and the first movie establishes their vulnerability and weakness. In the StarWars mythology, the human homeworld, according to the New Essential Chronology, is generally believed to be Coruscant. However, there is actually no real consensus on the issue and the ancient human home world has simply been lost to history. Star Wars humans live on many different worlds throughout the galaxy, with many populations living together with several other species—something which is most common either on the cosmopolitan worlds at the core, such as on Coruscent, or on the frontier at the Outer Rim of the galaxy.
