Sheyang

Sheyangs are heavyset reptilians, usually weighing between 80 and 150 kilograms. This gives tem a rather ungainly appearance, amplified by their stout limbs and waddle-like walk. Their skin has a thick, amphibious quality and us usually a shade of green or brown, which darkens with age. Sheyangs have no body hair. Their large mouths are full of sharp teeth, giving them a predatory, shark-like appearance. Adults vary between 1.8 and 2.6 meters tall and continue to grow throughout their lifespan.

Background: Evolving from reptilian amphibians, Sheyangs are known throughout the Uncharted Territories as aggressive opportunists. Having attained a high level of technological sophistication by pillaging the ships and abandoned colonies of other races, the Sheyangs have developed a sense for alien weapons and equipment.

Huge and hulking, most Sheyangs tend to resort to physical force when faced with a problem. A few of their number, however, have learned to cooperate and relate with other species, realizing that trade can be more valuable than scavenging abandoned remains.

Personality: Sheyangs are often proud and acquisitive. As a culture, they value possessions and use material wealth in determining rank or standing within the community. However, as the race gains more exposure to other species, they are learning other ways to attain self-worth, and particularly smart Sheyangs sometimes adapt to other standards or philosophies.
