The Adnerem were a race of tall, thin mammalian humanoids native to the planet Adner. They were distinguished by their large, triangular-shaped heads, which had a prominent bulge or knob in the center of their forehead. They had wide, flat eyes, and their thin arms end in hands which had four thin, talon-tipped fingers but lack a truly opposable thumb. The Adnerem were known for their desire to improve their socio-economic positions in life, which often required them to work for the betterment of their individual families, or steri. The average Adnerem tended to be asocial and introverted, but they were often found in small groups. A well-known phrase described the Adnerem this way: "Two Adnerem were a party, four a dinner, and six a funeral."
