Humanoid Species in Yonderverse | World Anvil

Humanoid

Humanoids are a characteristic of many species across the Yonderverse. Humanoid species have what they call a "blueprint", and in a surprise twist of events a species known as humans arose on Earth, resembling this blueprint almost exactly. Humanoids are typically sapient species, as the anatomy is the most efficient and best adapted for the intelligent lifestyle.

Blueprint Anatomy

Various Humanoids by Mochi

The blueprint for humanoids have a simplistic looking, yet surprisingly complex, anatomy. The blueprint houses a vertical spine with a neck and head attached to the top, one pair of arms and legs, and lacking a tail. This blueprint is determined since most humanoid species lack tails, and have one pair of arms and legs. Some humanoid species differ of course, but this is less common.

Height is competely disregarded in the humanoid blueprint. While the height for a large number of humanoid species ranges from 1 to 4 metres, there are so many cases of humanoids being much smaller and much taller that an average height is unnecessary.

Humans are a more recent intelligent species to arise, only in the last few million years on a planet called Earth in the Ria System. Humans are an exact replica of the blueprint, and is the reason for their species common name.

If you meet a human, which is unlikely considering they are extinct, they'll tell you that the word "humanoid" was named after them, which isn't true. In fact, the humanoid blueprint is as old as the Yonderverse, and nobody can determine where it came from or why people know about it, it is simply innate knowledge.
