The Aquar were a water-breathing near-Human species inhabiting the planet Velusia. The Aquar were an offshoot of Humans who colonized Velusia thousands of years ago and evolved into their present form. An Aquar typically had blue or green skin covered in fine scales, with partially webbed fingers and toes, green hair, and large eyes. Aquar noses were flat, with gill-like horizontal slits in place of nostrils.
They lived a peaceful life of subsistence on Velusia, harvesting fish and plants from the oceans and raising herd animals on the few above-water mountains.
When scouts from the Nexcore Mining Corporation arrived on Velusia, they assumed the Aquar were natives and used them as cheap labor and supplanted their culture.
