Vaktovians. The descendants of humans....Edit
Vaktovians are the inhabitants of the planets Vakta and Vaktovia. Originally, the Vaktovians were colonists that landed on Vakta, and neighboring Vaktovia. Vakta, a lush, hospitable landscape, was the desirable planet to live on. However, Vaktovia is a barren, inhospitable planet. The original colonists could not even breathe the air without help from special respirators. After several generations (as well as some genetic modification and cybernetic enhancements), the descendants of the original colonists on Vaktovia exhibited aspects of a new race entirely. Most Vaktovians today do not need breathing apparati to breath the air.
Anatomy of the Vaktovian.Edit
The anatomy of the standard Vaktovian is much the same as a human. The key difference being the nature of the Vaktovian's evolution. They are adapted to life on an extremely hostile planet. Many display characteristics like superior strength, larger muscle density, sturdier skeleton and organ system, and a highly superior respiratory system, known as "Heavies". These "abnormalities" are cultivated by the Vaktovian Military, which indoctrinates children displaying these characteristics from as early an age as possible. However, the majority of Vaktovians exhibit a higher adaptability to different climates, with almost identical physiologies to humans. These make up almost the entire Vaktovian population on Vakta. The immune system of Vaktovians has grown extremely resistant against illnesses and disease as a result of the aforementioned genetic engineering.
Vaktovians are proven to be better adapted to hostile climates, and functions even better in lush environments, such as the one on Vakta. It is completely possible for Vaktovians and Humans to breed. However, all offspring made between Humans and Vaktovians will demonstrate Vaktovian aspects only, as all Vaktovian genes are proven to be dominant over pathetic human genes...
