Malon

The Malon have broad noses with distinctly-shaped nostrils, and their skin is a yellowish-brown color. Their foreheads have a slight ridge-like protrusion. They also have brown hair which is usually thick and wavy when they are young, but – like Humans – receding hairlines and baldness occurred in older Malon. Their hair follicles grow from the mid part of their heads, just after the ridge-like pattern.

Malon waste exporters had many sores on their skin due to theta radiation exposure. The Malon used analeptic compound injections to counter the freighter blight, but while the treatment kept them alive, it did not prevent skin scarring.

Waste exporters seem to be respected for keeping the homeworld clean. As most of the population are likely not damaged by radiation due to the clean homeworld, the skin damage may be regarded with respect by the general population.

Although technologically advanced, the Malon lack the technology to recycle antimatter waste, which emitted hazardous theta radiation. Therefore, this hazardous waste was dumped in open space in vast quantities by waste export vessels. The Malon attempted to find uninhabited regions for this waste, but this was not always the case. Because ship controllers have a high profit motive to continue their transport operations, the waste export industry has resisted efforts to develop cleaner technologies. Some Malon engaged in waste export only worked in the industry part-time. Fesek, for example, was a sculptor by trade but could make as much profit in one waste export mission as he could have made in an entire year on his homeworld. The Malons were self-proclaimed experts at salvage operations.
