The Martians are a sapient humanoid civilization native to the planet Mars. Physically, they look very much like humans, although larger and with oversized heads that are completely bald and toothless. There doesn't seem to be any sexual dimorphism in this species, meaning that males and females look perfectly identical. In fact, individual variation in this species appears to be nonexistent, as they all exhibit the same pale skin and emotionless faces. Their blood is red like human blood. Most fantastic of all, their language is identical to English.
