Welcome to the Companion resources for "Kilrathi Font Reference Sheet"

Use this as a reference for study, etc. As this is a charityware screen font (not a vector image font), just the layout and its template components are under copyright.


Made with:

- Adobe Illustrator CS2
- Mike H. Lee's scriptographic study & rendering: "Kilrathi" font seen in "Wing Commander" movie, 1999
- freeware dl @ Tommy of Escondino's Alien Fonts , a great collection. Includes Babylon 5, Star Wars, Stargate & Dune.

Mike H. Lee's Kilrathi true type font: This Kilrathi font comes from 1999 Movie: Wing Commander. The Canon letters are (A thru P), the rest of the font was invented by Mike. Kilrathi is an Ideographic language - the letters stand for a word or Idea. The little squares and dots change the meaning of the characters. The Kilrathi font, from what Mike has seen, can be written left to right & up and down.

:D I love this font. It's really beautiful. A bit inspiring me to try to learn how to set up a font do one of my own runic type.

Sadly this font conflicts with the Kilrathi alphabet seen in the original games (see Wing Commander: Prophecy's opening cinematic to view a stone slab covered with Kilrathi text) but having access to this Kilrathi text is still great!

This could be used to GREAT effect in fan films and the like.
