The Chenari are scaleless reptiles with humanoid bodies. They have poor eyesight, despite their large eyes, and have a small organ between their eyes which, often mistaken for their nose, helped them to see. Easily addicted to salt, their lifespan was roughly the same as a Humans. The Chenari live in a family based community, where the males take care of the young, as the females were generally reckless and thrill-seeking. They have flat, anvil-shaped heads, sharp claws, clear, marble-like eyes, and skin tone that ranges from mahogany to ebony.
