The Lafran are a humanoid species. In appearance they have light-copper to tannish skin, with some facial ridges and a hairline set far back from the forehead. When leaving their homeworld, they have to wear a breathing device which provides them with the gases that are found in the toxic atmosphere of their homeworld. The Lafran are a resource-poor species and technologically only moderately advanced. Because of this, 500 Million Lafran left their homeworld.
