Arkanians are highly intelligent, their greatest contribution to the galaxy being in the field of genetic manipulation. They possess a certain arrogance, considering themselves to be the pinnacle of evolution. Specific appearances vary widely, with some Arkanians able to pass as baseline humans while the majority have white eyes lacking pupils, white hair, and four opposing fingers on each hand. A sub-species have five fingers and human-like eyes, and sometimes pointed ears. They are classified as Near Human as well.

Biology and Appearance

Arkanians considered themselves the pinnacle of evolution, and as such many were distinctly arrogant. Arkanian scientists had been experts in genetic manipulation for millennia, and by the time of the Mandalorian Wars the species had been split into many sub-species, making it hard to determine exactly what was a baseline Arkanian. Most Arkanians could pass for Human, though the majority had pure white eyes and four clawed fingers on each hand.

Arkanians were capable of seeing in infra-red light, and their eyes were sensitive to sources of extreme heat. This was helpful on their dark and frigid homeworld, but when traveling offworld, many were forced to wear blinders on planets with hotter, younger suns. It was also not unusual for an Arkanian to enhance themselves with internal or external cybernetics, or in some cases both. It was also standard practice for many of the Arkanians to undergo further genetic manipulation on their own bodies, enhancing themselves even further and better than lesser species.

Special Abilities:

  • Darkvision: Arkanian characters can see up to 20 meters in total darkness.

Story Factors:

  • Arrogance: Arkanians are typically arrogant, believing that they have reached the pinnacle of evolution.
  • Infamy: Arkania was once part of the Sith empire, and their dedication to aggressive scientific research has given them a somewhat bad reputation as the galaxy’s mad scientists.
