The Pr?*tans are a race from planet Pr?*t. The strange symbols stand for a whistle and a grunt, respectively. Pr?*tans have tentacles and hatch from eggs but little else is known about their shape because offworld they usually must live in non-transparent boxes that maintain the necessary heat and poisonous air, whereas no one wants to go on their world to study them because of the heat and poisonous air.
Pr?*tans live in Hives scattered across the planet. Though they are not a hive mind per se, they are less individualistic than average and easily swayed by one another's opinions and recommendations. On the flip side, convincing one as the member of another species is not necessarily easy.
