History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Evolution is a tricky thing and a very wide variety of evolutionary advantages have developed for different species. These include dual-use limbs, tails, headless torsos, and a very wide variety of ped and manipulator types. While humanoid body plans are very common on standard gravity planets, non-human body types are nearly as common in the same range of environments.
