Mariners are lumped together by the Imperia, but are hundreds of different species from dozens of worlds. They run the gamut from largely humanoid to wildly alien, but in Imperian spaces are required to wear conformer units, shapeshifting technology that zips them into a humanoid shape for the comfort of Imperians.

When utilizing conformer units, each Mariner race has a different, specific color combination they're required to use. Whereas all Imperians have brown hair and brown eyes, the Mariner races are separated by planet into color regulations.

For example, all Cappadocians wearing conformer units have black hair and hazel-green eyes. All Bithynians have light blond hair and hazel-brown eyes. And so on.

Notable Mariners

Miruna Aprica Iberiana

Zoraida bat Renaniatu

Once the same species as Imperians, Renanim attempted to save their dying planet long after the Imperians had departed. Once the Renanim followed the Imperians, the two races discovered that their development had diverged ever so slightly.

Defining Features

Build: average between 5 foot and 6 foot tall, humanoid
Skin: varies depending upon planet of residence, but tends to be deep tan
Hair: middle to dark, trending dark in general
Eyes: the defining feature of the Renanim; eyes are variegated brown rather than the flat brown of the Imperians or conformed Mariners
Naming: given name + optional nickname + ben/bat parent's name + ben/bat grandparent's name
Culture: initially content to live and let live, the increasingly hostile treatment they get from the Imperia has brought out the fighting nature of many Renanim, including a weaponized form of their ancient magic
