The Colonist is a Career from the Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook.
In a way, the Colonists are the most out-of-place people in the Outer Rim. They are most often from the Core Worlds, where they were well educated and part of the cultural and professional elite. A Colonist doesn’t tend to to have the training to survive in areas of high conflict and they aren’t particularly adept at physical exploits.
C-3PO, Lor San Tekka, and 2-1B are examples of Colonists in Star Wars.
