Zolans are the native residents of the planet Zola; a world only recently discovered by the UN Spacy's expeditions into deep space. Like humans, Zolans are another race created by the Protoculture, however they differ in several areas.

While they are indeed humanoid, Zolans are actually marsupials and genetically incompatible with humans. As well, they have a few other distinguishing features. Zolans possess elongated, and pointed ears and a two-tone hair color with their bangs being a totally different (and usually much brighter) color than the rest of their hair. As well, male Zolans have large patches of hair/fur that runs along their forearms and covers the back of their hands.

Every Zolan also has a small, two foot long, furry, tan-colored snake called a Catsnake with them. These snakes possess three eyes, two on the side and a third one in the center of their forehead. While no obvious words are exchanged outside of a few mewling sounds, Zolans do seem to be able to understand what these snakes are saying. Zolans also seem to be more sensitive to things of a spiritual nature, in MUSH terms this means that Rookie OC Zolans are granted a 1 point higher cap on their Spirit stat on application.

As they are a relatively new and out of the way world, Zola tends to receive very little notice from the UN Spacy. Most of their world is industrial level tech with the only high tech equipment found on the UN Spacy base that is set on the planet. This has given some Zolans the impression of being neglected or shunned by their newfound allies. Still, some have found their way into space and subsequently onto colony fleets.

GM's Note: Zolan ROC's can start with a maximum of 6 Spirit by capping Strength at 3.
