Noro are thin and spindly humanoids, with oversized black eyes and long slender fingers. Their mouths and lower jaws are narrow in relation to the rest of their head, but not grotesquely so. They have six fingers on their hands and six toes on their feet. Instead of hair, their heads sport bony spikes of varying length that grow like hair. Some Noro affect a mohawk-like crest of spikes, while others ‘shave’ them all off. In Human terms, some Noro can be very attractive, albeit outlandish. The race favors tunics or togas for ceremonial occasions and jumpsuits or bodysuits otherwise.

Early in their space-faring history, the Noro caused the nuclear annihilation of a neighboring world. Realizing their grievous error, the species as a whole has adopted a pacifist philosophy.
