The Sst'ankh'rii are homoeothermic bipeds with a bow-legged but surefooted gait and have dexterous six-fingered 'hands'. Their 'heads' resemble a common household light bulb frontally, with an enlarged cranial lobe curving down and back behind their 'faces'. They have four pupiless black eyes, arrayed laterally, two closely above the nasal slits, and the other pair about where humans have ears. They have no true nose, only two pronounced slits over an insect’s mandible mouth. They are covered in a tough, segmented chitinous skin. They have no concept of clothes beyond utility belts, and harnesses for carrying loads in wicker baskets or animal hide sewn haversacks, and have no concept of hate, or war. Crime is unheard of, and the group owns everything communally.
Technologically, the Sst'ankh'rii have harnessed solar power, wind power, and geothermal energy for electricity, and are skilled in metalworking to a high degree for farming and mechanical tools, and personal weapons. Lacking certain minerals here to make gunpowder, they use compressed air rifles and handguns for hunting. Their society is a participatory democracy of adults, and dwell in separate groups by gender and age. The Adult males and females dwell apart: the males hunt, build, and create, the females gather foodstuffs, and raise the young.
The Sst'ankh'rii have a normal lifespan of approximately 90 years. They have no written language, and pass on all their knowledge orally by rote to the next generation.
They have no music, being essentially tone deaf, but are acutely sensitive to changes in temperature, wind, and tectonic activity. They use lightweight natural materials for their dwellings due to the high amount of seismic activity on their world.
