The Tekundu of Yulanii are a Minor Human Race with a humanoid appearance and technologically developing sophonts.

Physiology & Ecology[edit]

The Tekundu, adapting to their new desert environment, are capable of storing a significant quantity of water within their own bodies. Fully laden with water, the average Tekundu is capable of surviving several weeks without further water consumption. This additional water causes their bodies to expand, looking like they are quite fat to obese. The additional weight can cause slowed movement and clumsy behavior. As the water is consumed internally, the Tekundu returns to their normal size and shape.
