The Patrolians were a race of short-statured beings native to the Inner Rim planet Patrolia. They were distinguished by its pale, pastel-colored scales and long, fin-like limbs. A crest ran down the back of the head of the average Patrolian, and two fin-like frills hung from its jowls. A wide fin-shaped tail provided further evidence of this humanoid race's piscene ancestors. The Patrolian physiology was immune to the effects of electrical energy, and the average individual could survive intense electrical shocks.
