Racial Name: Ullitors

Alias: N.E.E.B.’s (Natives of Epsilon Eridani B)

Nicknames: Colossians, Ogres, Oafs

Home Galaxy: The Milky Way

Home Planet: Epsilon Eridani B

Alternative Planet Names: Ice-Sphere

Colonized Planets: Ullitors share their planets with the humans of Mars, Moons of Jupiter, Moons of Saturn, Moons of Neptune, Epsilon Eridani B (annexed), Protega(annexed), Helios 13 (annexe)

Major Organizations: Terran Allied Forces or T.A.F. (Union of Earth Countries), Prometheus Enterprises (Natural Resources Corporation), House of Veneration (Science based Religion)

Physical Description: Ullitors are bipedal creatures with a torso, head, two arm and two leg appendages. They have five major sense organs, in which four are located on the head. They have two eyes, two ears, one nose, one mouth (all located on the head) and a large set of nervous tissue throughout the skin. They are descendents of an animal called the Gulcan, a massive ice mammal that lives on Epsilon Eridani B billions of years ago. Ullitor body types vary somewhat, but all seem to be of great mass as to survive their environment. The average height of an adult male or female Ullitor is about 2.6 meters (8 feet, 6 inches) tall and the average mass of an adult Ullitor is 272 kg (600 lbs).

Although Ullitors appear hairless (w/ notable hair growth occurring chiefly on the top of the head, underarms and pubic area) the average Ullitor has more hair follicleson than its ancestor-mammal. The main distinction is that Ullitors hairs are shorter, finer, and less heavily pigmented, thus making them harder to see. The hue of Ullitor skin ranges from light blue to heavy saphire. Ullitor hair ranges from brown to blue, but most commonly black. The fading with increased age leads to grey or even white hair. Ullitors have proportionately shorter palates and large bulky teeth for gnawing. They are the only creatures on Epsilon Eridani B to have both canine and molar teeth.

Ullitors are omnivores (eating both meat and vegetation). They live for an average of 70 years, reaching sexual maturity at 10 to 12 years of age. Females continue to develop physically until age 16 while males develop until age 19. They reach their physical climax from age 14 to 30 before beginning to slowly fade in strength and stamina. An Ullitor is considered elderly (and incapable of certain physical actives) when they reach their 60’s. They can live in most cold environments provided they have appropriate shelter due to thick, muscular insulation all around their body. This bulky anatomy must be kept up and many Ullitors have to eat nearly half of their body weight. However, the heavy mass also works against Ullitors who can not survive long in hot temperatures above 32.2 degrees celcius (90 degrees farenheit). Ullitors have a relatively low birth rate, able to produce one offspring every three years, due to the amount of energy it takes to give birth to their mammoth infants. The creature is very efficient in cold temperatures such as space, making them ideal for galactic exploration.

Culture: Ullitors are mildly social beings and tend to live in basic social groups. More than any other creature, Ullitors tend to communicate through athletic prowess, honoring other beings in their social structures through physical aptitude. Ullitor groups range from families to galactic organizations. They tend to gravitate towards humans who have helped teach them a variety of values, social norms, and rituals. All Ullitors societies organize, recognize and classify types of social relationships based on relations between parents and children (consanguinity), and relations through marriage (affinity). These kinds of relations are generally called kinship relations. In most societies kinship places mutual responsibilities and expectations of solidarity on the individuals that are so related, and those who recognize each other as kinsmen come to form networks through which other social institutions can be regulated. Among the many functions of kinship is the ability to form descent groups, groups of people sharing a common line of descent, which can function as political units. In many societies, kinship relations can also be formed through forms of co-habitation, adoption, fostering, or companionship, which also tends to create relations of enduring solidarity.
