Coverains resemble most humanoid spices form an external view but sport a complex system of organs, as well as a distinct skin variation that randomly shifts skin color once at birth. Known Colors are Brown, white, blue, jet black, and purple. Most Coverians shave their heads but those who do not have a sliver almost shiny colored hair. The average lifespan is around 150 years old but some of the healthier Coverains live to be almost 180 years old.
Coverains largely stay isolated on their home system only trading in order to maintain friendly relations with the Federation and its allies. Its people are often seen as kind and respectable but tend break certain social norms with their views on marital relationships, often taking two wives. Only a select percentage choose to leave the home world and those who do are required to stay abroad for a minimum of ten years and are expected to become teachers of some kind to expand Coverian knowledge of the quadrant. Their views on violence often shift in a never ending argument among themselves between never and only in self defense.
The Coverains do not have any established form of religion. No evidence has been found even in their oldest surviving records to indicate that they may have had some form in the past. While unusual certain experts believe that this is merely a natural aspect of their development.
Having never developed a strong military presence in their sector prior to Federation membership, the Coverians rely on Starfleet for protection.
