The Aksani are a humanoid species. Physically, Aksani are warm-blooded, hairless humanoids with grayish skin and a wide variation in height. Their mouths were their most distinctive features: instead of jaws, Aksani had many fleshy tendrils hanging from their lower face and neck. Aksani breathed through these organs, called hullepi in Khilese. Aksani communicated by breathing through hullepi of different lengths, thus producing various musical tones. This made them natural musicians.
