The Wyngari are an ancient race. The Wyngari are humanoids characterized by their unique facial structure. Their large heads are hairless, and seem to lack jaws. Just below their noses is a mass of fleshy tendrils known as hullepi. These strands of flesh are among the most important organs in the Wyngari body, as they are used for eating, drinking, breathing, and communication. The hullepi are used to breathe the air of their home planet, Belnar. As a by-product of breathing, the hullepi strain microscopic proteins and moisture from the air. This serves as the Wyngari's food. Any waste products thus ingested are expelled by sneezing. They can also absorb liquids through the hullepi, preferring juices to supplement the airborne proteins they consume. By breathing through hullepi of various sizes, the Wyngari can also communicate, via a series of musical whistles and songs.
