The Harkonians are a Near-Human race. Harkonians consider themselves the pinnacle of evolution, and as such many were distinctly arrogant. Harkonian scientists had been experts in genetic manipulation for millennia, the species had been split into many sub-species, making it hard to determine exactly what was a baseline Harkonian. Most Harkonians could pass for Humans, though the majority had pure white eyes, and four clawed fingers on each hand. One particular sub-species were bred as workers for the famed Harkonian gem mines. These people had five-fingered hands and Human-like eyes—sometimes even pointed ears.
