Filvians were sentient quadrupedal ungulates indigenous to the desert planet of Filve, notable for their technical aptitude, their hardiness, and their gregarious nature.

Biology and appearance Edit

Filvians were naturally adapted to desert environments, with large humps on their backs used to store water and fat. A series of smaller glands distributed through their bodies served the same purpose, giving them distinctively lumpy bodies, and allowing them to survive for up to thirty standard days with neither food nor water. Despite the adaptations which allowed them to survive in Filve's hot deserts, they preferred to live in cooler regions.

While normally quadrupedal, they could walk on their hind legs (though more slowly than they could on four), and use their nimble three-fingered front feet as hands

Filvians were fascinated by new devices and unfamiliar machinery, and easily picked up new technical skills. From their beginnings as primitive desert dwellers, the Filvian people expanded their scientific and technical knowledge, eventually becoming among the galaxy's foremost computer programmers and technicians. The cities of Filve were also notable examples of advanced Filvian technology: each city was fully enclosed, climate-controlled, and connected with the other cities via transportation networks which made it possible to visit each mega-city without stepping outdoors.

Behind the scenes Edit

The short story The Farrimmer Cafe incorrectly spelled this species "Flivian". Leland Chee confirmed on the official site forums that this is the same species.
