Physically, the Jessa are small (average height 1.6 meters) and thin. They have a thick skin and a dexterity far surpassing human capacity . In fact, the Jessa have undergone a number of developments in order to adapt to Galatea's calamitous environment. In order to keep close watch through the mists for danger or prey, the Jessa has no collarbone, allowing him a 270% radius of vision (like an owl). His arms hang low from sloping shoulders, allowing the Jessa, to run on all fours if necessary. The hands are six fingured on a wide palm, equipped with the equivalent of two opposable thumbs, while the elbow has been replaced with a ball and socket joint which helps make the Jessa masters of swordplay. Also, the tail, though small, has become prehensile, and is occasionally used for suprise in defense. The Jessa are also difficult to look at because, unlike the human face, the Jessa's has no nose to center the view, cheek membranes replacing olfactory and auditory centers at once.
History & Background (Dossier)
Galatea is named for its vast oceans and storms. Discovered in 439 by independent explorer Mathias Farnha, the planet possesses over 5000 islands which are mostly unstable due to geologic "tides" in the planet's crust. Though rich in minerals and possibly some heavy metals, mining is virtually impossible because of the violent activity of the faulting crust.
