Halphbloods (Species Description)

An interesting fact about this species: I initially created them for a comic but didn’t develop them very well. That comic has since died/been canceled and I decided to repurpose the species and flesh them out better.

(the derogative name will not be related to English, so will be filled in later)

Characteristics:
human-like body, fangs or sharp teeth, multiple possible skin colors, different colored scleras and irises, male or female, multiple hair colors, pointed ears

Found on:
Lekreanfyr, Fohrtiil, Craoxien, Arshilkrin, Ortenfeil, Slyrpfyrn, Yrfsholgh, Irqulnirn

Social habits:
mature at about 20 earth years, often couple with a halphblood of the opposite sex, but may interbreed with other species, prefer relative isolation until mature

Lifespan:
50-120 earth years, possible more or less with interspecies breeding (for example, if a halphblood were to interbreed with a quarzyl, the resulting offspring might live to 300 earth years)

Housing:
often drab colored exteriors, elaborate architecture in and out, bright colored or shiny interiors, sleep in beds of various materials depending on what’s available and personal preferences

Clothing:
large, loose shirts in varying colors, pants in varying but more limited colors, don’t often wear shoes unless circumstances demand it

Familial structure:
mother cares for young until about one to two earth years, the offspring live a short distance from parents until they’re about five earth years when they go on a long journey to find a desirable place to live–this location may change once they’ve matured and coupled

Children:
mother carries a single baby halphblood for six earth months, the baby eats semi-solids as teeth finish coming in which takes two to four earth months, after which they eat like adults; the mothers don’t produce milk, so there is no nursing stage

Hierarchy:
based first on purity of bloodline, then color combination of scleras and irises from darkest colors to lightest, then skin color from coolest to warmest

Abilities:
can interbreed with any non-aquatic species inhabiting the same planets (generally the halphblood has to be female, but if the other species can also interbreed, it could go either way), can see small details far away, can hear far away or whispered conversations
