The Scanians of Akiva (Dagudashaag 0935) are a technologically advanced Human Chimera with a humanoid appearance.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Scanians were genetically engineered by a Solomani genetic engineering company from normal human stock in order to allow colonization of high gravity, water worlds. A Scanian male will average 1.8m in height and weighs approximately 80 kilograms. A female averages about 1.6m and 68 kilograms. Height-to-weight ratio for males is 45 kg per metre thereby increasing muscular capacity. The Solomani geneers decided to use a planet in the Dagudashaag sector [0935], which they called Gaea, for their experimentation. To endure the intense cold, high gravity and effects of the sea they altered the colonists’ genes to create a number of mutations.

Scanians divide themselves between "wet" and "dry" communities, the former preferring to live as much in the sea as possible, the latter preferring air-filled habitats. The two groups are quite tolerant of each other and sometimes share habitats, divided into "dry" and "wet" parts. [1]
