Skin color: Reddish-brown
Eye color: Orange
Distinctions: Respirator horns
Attribute Dice: 11D
Sensitive Eyes: Melbu have large eyes which are sensitive to movement, giving them a +1D bonus to all visual search checks, especially against stealthy opponents.
Respirator Horns: Melbu breath through long horns on the top of their head, and more comfortably require atmosphere away from their home world to be filtered through breathing tubes. However they are capable of breathing normal atmosphere and suffer no disadvantage for doing so, just finding it unpleasant. The location of these horns do make it more easy for them to submerge themselves when swimming.
Description: The Melbu were a sentient species that existed in the galaxy. They were distinguished by their respirator horns, which were connected to a breathing mask worn on the mouth and their bright orange eyes. Auromae Iselo, a member of the Cloud-Riders, was a Melbu.
