:'''''See also:''' [[Aenar/History|The Aenar timeline]]Since their discovery by the [[Andorian]] government in 2104, the Aenar have preferred to remain in seclusion. They have kept contact with the [[Andorian|Andorians]], but aside from playing a role in a [[Romulan]] attempt to destabilize politics in the [[MA:Alpha Quadrant|Alpha Quadrant]] alpha quadrant in 2154 they have played only a minor part in galactic history. A few [[Andorian|Andorians]] who have served in [[MA:Starfleet|Starfleet]] have been recorded as having some Aenar ancestry. [[Image:Gareb.jpg|thumb|''[[MA:Gareb|Gareb]] was abducted from the Aenar city in 2153, and brainwashed by [[Romulan|Romulans]].'']][[Image:Jhamel.jpg|thumb|150px|''[[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel]], sister of the abductee [[MA:Ghareb|Ghareb]], aided the allied forces against the [[Romulan|Romulans]] in 2154.'']]===Timeline==={| border="1" cellpadding="2"!width="100"|Date!width="850"|Event|-|2104 || A settlement of Aenar, long since assumed to be a myth by the [[Andorian|Andorians]], is discovered beneath a dampening field in [[MA:Andoria|Andor’s]] Northern Wastes.|-|2153 || The Aenar known as [[MA:Gareb|Gareb]] is abducted by [[Romulan]] operatives.

The Aenar are an [[Andorian]] sub-species (specifically a strain of the Bish’ee species) native to the Northern Wastes of the moon [[MA:Andoria|Andor]]. Similar in appearance to [[Andorian|Andorians]], they lack skin pigment giving them a paler appearance than their [[Andorian]] cousins. They are also completely blind, but highly [[MA:Telepathy|telepathic]]. Their population, during the mid-22nd century, consisted of only a few thousand.
[[Image:JhamelandShran.jpg|thumb|150px|''Commander [[MA:Shran|Shran]] and [[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel]], who would eventually become a part of the same breeding group.'']]
The Aenar are physiologically very similar to the [[Andorian|Andorians]], with two antennae sprouting from their heads, although the antennae of the Aenar have small indentations in the funnel shaped tips. The Aenar are completely blind and have no skin or hair pigment, resulting in a pale white appearance (similar to [[humanHuman]] albinos). On average they stand between 1.7 and 2.2 metres tall, and are roughly of the same build as the average [[human]]Human. Their metabolism is high, a trait that has been evolved to aid their survival in the sub-freezing temperatures of the planet’s polar ice-cap. Their blood is cobalt-based.
The most distinctive trait of the Aenar, however, is their highly evolved [[MA:Telepathy|telepathic]] abilities. An Aenar is capable of reading minds and of [[MA:Telepathy|telepathically]] projecting itself to other [[MA:Humanoid|humanoids]]. They use [[MA:Telepathy|telepathy]] to communicate amongst among themselves. Being that they are a subspecies of [[Andorian]]Andorians, therefore actually a member of the same species, they are completely genetically compatible with [[Andorian|Andorians]], allowing for the birth of hybrid offspring. Such hybrids often retain the strongest abilities of their genetic donors(for example, as the offspring of the breeding group that contained [[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel]], [[MA:Shran|Shran]], Shenar, and Vishri produced [[MA:Talla|Talla]], who retained both [[MA:Telepathy|telepathy]] and the ability to see).
The Aenar are a private and pacifistic people. Their [[MA:Telepathy|telepathic]] abilities are considerable, but they have a strict tenet that forbids them from reading the thoughts and minds of others without express permission. On meeting Commander [[MA:Shran|Shran]] in 2154, [[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel]] immediately apologized for having sensed the loss of his partner, [[MA:Talas|Talas]], despite having done so unintentionally due to [[MA:Shran|Shran’s]] tumultuous emotional state.The Aenar are strong-willed, and will often adhere to their ideals of pacifism in the face of danger, despite the potential harm it may cause to them. They To this end, they deplore violence, and it was this sentiment that caused [[MA:Lissan|Lissan]] to question the actions of [[MA:Jhamel|Jhamel]] when she decided to become involved with the allied forces led by [[MA:Jonathan Archer|Jonathan Archer]] to save her brother from the [[Romulan|Romulans]] in 2154. Aside from being telepathically contacted by his sister, it was the realization of the number of people for whose deaths he was responsible that gave [[MA:Gareb|Gareb]] the strength to resist his conditioning and command the [[MA:Romulan drone-ship|drone-ships]] he was controlling to destroy each other. He did so even knowing that it would lead to his execution.In contrast to the [[Andorian|Andorians’]] somewhat passionate mentality, the Aenar enjoy more subtle forms of music, and are more receptive to emotions and sentiments that may be considered "weak " by outsiders.
[[Image:AenarCity.jpg|thumb|''The Aenar city, built below ground in the [[Andorian]] Northern Wastes.'']]
The Aenar civilization is built in an expansive system of caverns beneath the Issan ice cap. Circular pod-like modules are attached to rock supports to provide dwellings for the Aenar people, along with facilities such as hospitals, libraries and other public services. Access to the service is gained through a system of tunnels that have deliberately been made confusing to navigate. This is to prevent unwanted discovery by outsiders. The Aenar have been known to deliberately mask the senses of those who are trying to find them, or trying to leave the compound against the will of the Aenar. This is achieved by using [[MA:Telepathy|telepathic]] projections.

Aside from this, the Aenar tend not to trade with the outside world. Their [ egalitarian] culture leaves them with no need for currency or trade, as they are able to exist in a self-supportive state.
==Culture & Customs==
Due to their reclusive behaviour very little is known of Aenar culture. However, from what outsiders have managed to learn it has been proven that the Aenar are a benevolent species. While they prefer not to be disturbed by people from outside their settlement they will offer help to those who need it. Their ideals of non-violence and pacifism are very rarely broken.
Reading an individual’s thoughts without permission is considered a violation. Accidental occurences are often resolved with an apology, but a prolonged or regular series of incidents (while very rare) incurs expulsion from the Aenar settlement – the only solution that removes the problem without resorting to violence.
While the Aenar do not follow the [[Andorian]] clan system, many of them choose to devote their life to the study of science or medicine.
Aenar ''[[Andorian/Gender and Reproduction#Zhen |zhen]]'' and ''[http:[Andorian// Gender and Reproduction#Shen|shen]]'' often wear a white translucent veil that covers the lower half of their faces. Their hair is often worn long, and tied in braids behind their heads. White is the favoured colour of Aenar garments, despite their inability to see the colours of the fabrics they produce.
[[MA:Ice Bore|Ice Bore]] worms commonly reside in the icy expanses of the Issa cap. As such, they often travel through the Aenar settlement. While such creatures are dangerous due to their need to generate heat through and internal chemical reaction, they pose no threat to the Aenar who are able to sense their presence [[MA:Telepathy|telepathically]]. Children are often known to pursue swarms of [[MA:Ice Bore|Ice Bores]], tracking them with their [[MA:Telepathy|telepathic]] senses and attempting to track them through the labyrinthine tunnels around the city.
