|Universe||Star Trek Universe|
The Aenar are a pale-skinned, blind subspecies of the Andorians. They are a pacifistic race that inhabits subterranean cities on the northern polar region of the moon Andoria. Aenar have powerful telepathic abilities and are able to perfectly perceive the world around them, despite being sightless. They use telepathy to communicate with other members of their race, and are also able to read the minds of other species, although they respect other beings's rights to privacy and never use their telepathic abilities on other beings against their will.
Until the beginning of the 22nd century, the Aenar civilization was considered a myth by most Andorians. The Aenar's underground cities are located on the northern region of the moon, protected by an energy dampening field. They have no political leaders in their society, but choose a representative in case of necessity.
Aenar-Andorian hybrids are known to exist. They have greenish-blue skin and normal eyesight.
