The Triffians are a rotund, chubby race with obese bodies, vaguely humanoid build, and faces which consist of blue foreheads, yellow eyes, yellow upper lips, and white cheeks. A pair of thin, thermoregulator flaps, one on either side of the head, make the face seem unduely small. The flaps are covered in black fur (except for a blue "beard"), as are the neck, legs, tail, and arms. The feet are long and flat. Triffians stand about 1.22 metres tall. They were native to the Mid Rim planet Triffis.
