The Xienner are a technologically sophisticated sophont species.
Physiology & Environment (Ecology): This race comes from a world which are fairly warm, and quite high air humidity. Much of the planet is covered by large forests and jungles. The Xienner descends from a stock of omnivorous primates, just like Humans. Although for this similarity, there is no way there can be confusion between Humans and Xienners. Xienners have slim graceful bodies. Their average height is about 180cm, with a 150cm tail. They are bipedal with digitigrade legs. Their forelimbs are long and slender, with 5 fingered hands. Their body is covered with fur which are white or golden, with shades in between. Their face looks somewhat like a baboon, but covered with short and stiff hairs. The nose has long whiskers. The tails is good enough to pick up items like bags and key rings and the like. However it is not capable to carry much weight.
One thing that is unique to this race is their shape change ability. They are not shape changer in the meaning that they can alter their features from original shape to sludge or a human. But they can change their shape so that the body, limbs and the like get reconfigured better to do the work at hand. This ability is controlled by an enzyme that is let out into the bloodstream. The ability to generate more of this enzyme diminish with age, so old Xienners can’t shape change at all. Another feature is the total lack of Psionics. They can’t utilize psionics at all, and try to mind read them is futile.
History & Background (Dossier)
Psychology & Philosophy (Mindset): This shape change would have made them perfect soldiers, but they are friendly and peaceful. Killing can only be done in necessity. This has made them the perfect diplomats, which are sought after in Gurrdon and surrounding areas.
