The Pareins are a humanoid species. Pareins consider themselves the pinnacle of evolution, and as such many were distinctly arrogant. Parein scientists have been experts in genetic manipulation for 5 thousand years, and had been split into many sub-species, making it hard to determine exactly what was a baseline Parein. Most Pareins could pass for Humans, though the majority had pure white eyes, and four clawed fingers on each hand. One particular sub-species are bred as workers for the famed Parein gem mines. These people had five-fingered hands and Human-like eyes—sometimes even pointed ears. Members of this breed included the fugitives Camper and Jarael, who were actually considered offshoots or outcasts by other Pareins.
