The Triexians are a Near-Human race which resided primarily on the planet of Triex, though they were not indigenous to it.
The Triexians consider themselves the pinnacle of evolution, and as such many were distinctly arrogant. Triexian scientists had been experts in genetic manipulation for millennia, and by 2875, the species had been split into many sub-species, making it hard to determine exactly what was a baseline Triexian. Most Triexians 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 Triexian 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 Triexians.
Triexians were capable of seeing in infra-red light, and their eyes were sensitive to sources of extreme heat. This was helpful on their dark and frigid homeworld, but when traveling offworld, many were forced to wear blinders on planets with hotter, younger suns. It was also not unusual for an Triexian to enhance themselves with internal or external cybernetics, or in some cases both. It was also standard practice for many of the Triexians to undergo further genetic manipulation on their own bodies, enhancing themselves even further and better than lesser species.
