Another little debate question where someone will probably pop in with the answer in 10 minutes. But, anyway, with that one race that has the pherenomes, like the leader of the Black Sun, I think it's a little far-fetched that there pheronomes effect humans and other species. I mean, I know it's cannon. But a moth releases pheronomes to attract a mate, but other insects don't even pick it up usually. Wouldn't it be simmillar with that alien species? Sure, it might work on its own race, but I don't think it should work on humans. Has anyone had a strange desire to kiss a moth?

The Falleen have those pheromones. Xizor attracted Leia (Falleen and Human, respectively) to him with them. She found him nearly irresitable. It was in Shadows of the Empire.

I know, Nevin. I read it. Well, the comic version of it. That's why I said it was cannon. What I was asking is why he's able to do that.

So, basicly, no one can argue that he shouldn't be able to use pheronomes on anyone but his own race?

GEEZ! How come you don't get my example!

Okay, we all agree most species use pheronomes in one way or another right? Okay.

We all agree it's to attract a mate, right? Okay.

We all agree no one has had some strange desire to kiss a moth, or a spider, or a dog, or a praying mantis, right? Okay.

Then why should Leia have been under the effect of his pheronomes???

Falleen and Humans are similar, whereas a moth and a spider are dissimilar. Joke

Reply with quote

Pheremones are based on identifying with a specific physiology. For example, one moth's pheremones could potentially be attracting to another species close to it on the evolutionary tree. Faleen and Human, example, would be close enough to allow for that. But it wouldn't work on "all" bipedal humanoids... in theory.

Umm, yes, it could attract a different species of moth, MABYE. But I don't see how a human and a Faleen would be anywhere NEAR eachother. They don't even come from the same planet! Faleen pherenomes wouldn't be able to attact unless they were a branch of humans or simmilar to humans from the same planet. I haven't felt like kissing an chimpanzee when I was at the zoo, and they have a lot of simmilarities in DNA, the first 16 defining parts of DNA are the same, except for 1 or 2 pairs. So the species would have to be very, very close together. Just because it stands on two legs and has two arms doesn't count. A dog has four legs, a horse has four legs, and they don't get attracted to eachother.

I'm willing to bet that the phermones are relatively broad-spectrum.

Possibly, but all adaptations are just that, adaptations. Why would the Faleen need to be able to get other species to love them to survive?

What I mean by that is, they were probably not the hereditary predators of their ecosystem. They were more than likely preyed on by...I dunno, really big...predators. So, they adapated by saying "Come get me, big boy" with phermones.
