The Adanni are native to the semi-frozen, semi-jungle world of Sula Adanni VIII in the Expanse Sector of the Par'tha Expanse, under the control of House Lanaxa. The unusual configuration of the world gave rise to an unusual race of beings. Physically the Adanni look like they may have evolved from some type of ocean-dwelling creature, but that is impossible. The Adanni evolved in the rainforest-like canyons, away from the below-freezing temperatures of the arctic surface, but nowhere on the planet is there a body of water large enough to have spawned a sentient race. Another theory is that the Adanni are not indigenous to their system, but there is no evidence to support this theory either.
They are bipedal humanoids with four limbs, two arms and two legs. The Adanni stand anywhere from 140 cm to 190 cm tall, the females usually ranging between 140 cm and 170 cm, the males 150 cm to 190 cm. They have no skin, per se. Although they do posses an internal skeleton, their outside is covered in a thin exoskeleton-type shell. It is not hard enough to act as any type of body armor, but keeps their fleshy insides from falling out, like skin does. The exoskeleton can have any one, or sometimes many, shade of red. They have large black eyes that appear to have no iris, but is all pupil. Their cranium extends back and up slightly from the rest of their head, and there is apparently no sign of hair or fur on their bodies.
They possess an incredible amount of mental ability and ingenuity, which must compensate for their relatively fragile and weak bodies. For those who know the Adanni, the Adanni are highly sought after as scholars and technicians, and rarely looked upon as warriors.
