Alien Race Generator
The ice-based race of avians. This race is able to adhere to solid surfaces, making climbing easy. They are famous for producing mercenaries. Their economy is dependent on one technology - genetic engineering. They control a vast galactic empire. They were once a dead people, what brought them back to life is a matter of speculation. Their world of origin is watery and mineral-rich.
