The Hydran are small (4.5 feet tall ) beings, greenish-gray in color, with a barrel-shaped body, three equally spaced tentacles and three stubby legs, and no neck.
The Hydran breathe methane gas which would be uncomfortable or fatal to most other species and they prefer a low density planet. The Hydrans have three sexes : males, females, and matriarchal. The matriarchal are not very intellient and are basically walking containers for the young Hydran fetus to grow in. The matriarchals are rearly seen in public.
It is believed that the Hydran follow a monarchy government, but the bureaucracy holds the real power as dozens of princes conspire for the throne.
The Hydran have never gotten along well with their neighbors in the galaxy. They are always in conflict over resources and trade.
