The Shi’ar are humanoids of avian descent; they resemble humans with feathered crests atop their heads in lieu of hair. Two different styles are common: most Shi’ar, particularly those of the aristocracy, have feathers sprouting in a triangular shape away from the face, one peak on the top of the head and one peak on each side slightly over the shoulder; the other commonly seen ‘hairstyle’ is bushy on both sides and very flat on the top.

Internally, they have light hollow bones, and on their forearms there are still some vestigial feathers left of wings that were lost over millions of years of evolution. The average Shi’ar has far greater stamina than the average Human. Most Shi’ar have no other special abilities, though some are genetic throwbacks, and possess wings which allow them to fly.

The Shi’ar conceive their offspring in eggs. They are nurtured in special chambers and the children are referred to as hatchlings.
