There is no reason whatsoever that Quinlan Vos and the rest of the Kiffars are classified as ‘near-human’.
This is what makes them near-human:
Although they seemed human in appearance, Kiffar were distinguished by their scarlet blood and facial tattoos, which indicated their clan affiliation on their species’ homeworlds.
Excuse me, scarlet blood? This is what scarlet is:
Red. It’s fucking RED.
Do humans have blue blood now? Or is their blood ‘pinker’? I’m going to pop a vessel right here right now from all this idiocy.
Moving on. So … facial tattoos makes someone an alien? Y’all do know that they’re not born with tattoos right? They’re not even actually tattooed on! Like, nothing goes under the skin. As far as I know, they paint on the tattoos:

Korto looks like a perfectly normal human being, y’all. The only thing I can think of which distinguishes him and Quinlan from <<humans>> like Anakin, Obi-Wan, Padmé is that, ha! you guessed it, he ain’t white. Quinlan is a Black man, and he’s got that ‘wild, care-free’ attitude that makes people go woah. They did this same shit to Depa Billaba, who’s only ‘distinction’ from humans was that she wore piercings. That’s it. I’m sure if I go far back enough, the ‘species’ section listed under Mace Windu and Lando Calrissian would have been ‘Motherfucker’ and ‘Traitor’, respectively.
You know who quite obviously isn’t human? Anakin. Anakin, who only has one human parent and the rest is Force fuckery. They should have who the fuck knows under his ‘species’ section.
