The Yaitlat are a technologically developing sophont species.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The Yaitlat are descended from wetlands herbivorous intermittents, and are larger and heavier than humans on average. They are bilaterally symmetric, but apparently headless, as their brain and senses are located in their torso. Yaitlat have a pair of arms, each ending in two opposed groups of relatively inflexible digits, capable of clamping an object between them. They have two strong legs, plus a vestigial tail. Their body is protected by a segmented shell.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The xenophobic Yaitlat are a Minor Race native to Peres (Deneb 1221). They intensely dislike and distrust all humans due to years of cruel exploitation by the former Imperial rulers of Vincennes Subsector, the Humbolts.

The Yaitlat are now protected by the IISS because they were abused in the past by Vincennes' rulers, who were extracting hallucinogenic compounds from these beings via cruel, unethical, and deadly processes[1]. Any humans visiting Peres (Deneb 1221) are advised to keep out of sight and the system has been classified as an Amber Zone by the IISS.
