DEE

Dee are almost comical to look upon, this coupled with their carefree dispositions make them seem like fools to the other races. But this is far from the truth. They simply have no fear nor feel any physical discomfort. They are nearly immune to pain but quite sensitive to pleasure and many have perished from an overdose of pleasure. (What a way to go.)

Personality: Dee personality is almost always upbeat and optimistic. Members of this species tend to be highly adaptable, tenacious, and willing to keep striving no matter the odds. They are flexible and curious, welcoming the diversity of other species tastes, morals, customs, and habits. This does not mean that Dee cannot be evil, they’re just cheery about it and that makes it creepy.

Physical Description: Dee average about 2 meters tall. Skin shades run from blue-black to sky blue, hair from bright red to blond to white. They are often covered in blankets of hair much like fur across their chests, upper backs, and shoulders as well as their forearms and calves. Clothes are a new and interesting concept to them but they understand that modesty is important to other species. Men are usually taller and heavier than women. Dee achieve maturity about the age of 25 and often live beyond 200. They have no noses or even sinus cavities so their voices are similar to a human’s with a stuffed up nose.

Home Worlds: White Rock. The Dee home world has an extreme elliptical orbit and finds itself at the near and far edges of the habitable ring of their star. This means that when it gets cold, the whole planet freezes and when it gets hot the ice caps melt. This happens yearly. In their language they call the planet “the world”. So when prospectors arrived on the planet when it was frozen, they called it White Rock. After encountering the Dee, who were gathered around the equator (Dee have multiple homes and live at certain places depending upon the season), the Dee were so amused by what the Humans called the world that they kept it and refer to it that way when speaking to other races.

Languages: Dee speak, read, and write “the language” (other species call it Dee) as well as the Galactic Trade language. They can learn any other language but may not be physically able to speak some of them. In their own language, Dee means people. Dur Dee means other people.
