The Kolipians are a Minor Non-Human Race.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Adapted to trace atmospheres (Atmo types 1-3) and low gravity, the Kolipians were an unusual discovery for RCES in 1212, who presumed they had been destroyed by passing raiders of vampires along the main long ago.

The Kolipians are a tripodal burrowing tool-using race, resembling 1.5m tall "walking tree trunks", and each limb ending a manipulative three-fingered claw. They have no true head, the torso having a radial set of six 'eyes' about a half-meter above the upper set of limbs. Their 'mouth' is located dorsally atop of their torso, much like the Beree (another tripodal Minor race found in the trailing-coreward Crucis Margin Sector). The Kolipians are vegetarians, eating lichens and fungi grown in damp dark caves, and are adapted to the dim light of their M class star or total darkness, using a form of sonar similar to Terran bats for navigation in utter darkness.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Kolipians have a difficulty due to their physiology in speaking Anglic, but Hive Federation supplied voders were found to be the most useful tool for communicating with these hard working aliens. The Kolipians among themselves have a simple 'sign' language of gestures and 'footsteps', coupled with their tough chitinous chameleon skin ability for ‘punctuation’. The Kolipian skill also acts as a defensive mechanism and is equivalent to jack.
