Sometime during next month a significant update will release that lets players modify their existing characters, which includes altering their species. Trippy! We can also change armour colours.
The appearance designer kiosk is where it'll be happening. The Cathar were first seen in Knights of the Old Republic, which BioWare created. They're a fan favourite.
These new features will be arriving in Update 2.1: Customization.
