Special Abilities Edit
Each Nikto subspecies has its own special abilities, listed here.
KAJAIN'SA'NIKTOS (RED NIKTOS) Having evolved in the blasted expanse of the Endless Wastes, Red Niktos are adapted for this arid environment. The most common Nikto subspecies, Kajain'sa'Niktos have ruddy skin ranging from light orange to red and sport small facial horns on the brow and chin. A Red Nikto's nose is protected by a semi-permeable membrane that prevents sand inhalation. Similar membranes cover the breathing tubes on either side of the neck to reduce water vapor loss. This allows a Red Nikto to survive up to a week without fresh water.
Special Abilities: Kajain'sa'Niktos begin the game with one rank in Resilience. They still may not train Resilience above rank 2 during character creation. When making skill checks, Red Niktos may remove 1 black die imposed due to arid or hot environmental conditions.
KKADAS'SA'NIKTOS (GREEN NIKTOS) Originating in the forests and temperate coastal regions of Kintan, the Kadas'sa'Niktos have scaly green skin and a fringe of bony ridges terminating in small horns around the eyes and chin. Kadas'sa'Niktos have visible, highly sensitive noses and long claws for climbing.

In addition to facillitating respiration, the tubes allow the Sothern Niktos to perceive ultrasonic vibrations.
