Biology & Evolution

Dands are a type of "bird-people". They resemble birds; they have a black beak, eyes on the sides of their heads, wings and relatively small legs. They are entirely covered in black feathers with no differences between genders. Male and female ones are also identical in sizes so it might be difficult to determine what gender they are.

They posses flight capability, but are only able fly for about four to five kilometers in one flight before they need to rest. Although there are records of some Dands flying as much as 40 kilometers on one flight. These are, of course, based on their homeworld, which has higher than normal gravity. They have very good gliding capabilities.
