The Marciak are a peaceful, highly-evolved craniopod species native to the planet Coprvin.
The Marciak are craniopods with pale pink, yellow, or (rarely) green skin, large heads, large lidless eyes, and long fingers. The Marciaks internal systems were different from most humanoids, as the marciak had only one lung. The Marciak also lacked a proper nose, instead having highly sensitive olfactory organs hidden in the flaps of their cheeks.
The other Marciak senses were also acute. A Marciak 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, Marciak have high manual dexterity which helped them manipulate fine tools, though their physical prowess with gross motor skills was only average.
The Marciak 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, Marciak were still almost fully aware of their surroundings.
Since they had relied on technology for so many generations, the Marciak were also unable to reproduce naturally. Instead, they relied on artificial conception and gestation. Mates brought genetic material to a Computer Mating Service for analysis against prospective mates. Marciak children were created from genetic material from two parents, which was combined, fertilized, and incubated for a year.
