The Jelianians are a peaceful, highly-evolved craniopod species. Fully adapted to a civilized, high-technology lifestyle, Jelinians were found Galaxy-wide at all levels of society, most notably as engineers, scientists, intellectuals, consultants, and musicians. Bith were craniopods with pale pink, yellow, or (rarely) green skin, large heads, large lidless eyes, and long fingers. The Jelinians internal systems were different from most humanoids, as the Bith had only one lung. Jelinian also lacked a proper nose, instead having highly sensitive olfactory organs hidden in the flaps of their cheeks.
The other Jelinian senses were also acute. Jelinians could sense the tonal qualities of sound as well as other races sensed colors. They could also see microscopic details of nearby objects, but were extremely nearsighted as a result. Similarly, Jelinians had high manual dexterity which helped them manipulate fine tools, though their physical prowess with gross motor skills was only average.
Jelinians had even evolved past the need for sleep. Instead, they would slip into a light meditative trance, which allowed them to get as much rest in four hours as other species could get in eight. During this trance, Jelinians were still almost fully aware of their surroundings.
