Home Planet: Yag’Dhul
Attribute Dice: 12D
Mathematical Aptitude: Givin receive a bonus of +2D when using skills involving mathematics, including astrogation. They can automatically solve most “simple” equations (gamemasters option.)
Vacuum Protection: Every Givin has built-in vacuum suit which will protect it from a vacuum or harsh elements. Add +2D to a Givin’s Strength or stamina rolls when resisting such extremes. For a Givin to survive for 24 standard hours in a complete vacuum, it must make an Easy roll, with the difficulty level increasing by one every hour thereafter.
Increased Consumption: Givin must eat at least three times the food a normal Human would consume or they lose the above protection. Roughly, a Givin must consume about nine kilograms of food over a 24 hour period to remain healthy.
Size: 1.7-2 meters tall
Background: Givins were a sentient species from Yag’Dhul. They had the appearance of an animated skeleton, and were renowned for their mathematical genius. During the Galactic Civil War, the Givin cryptographer Drusil Bephorin was recruited into the Alliance to Restore the Republic.
Givins were a species of white-skinned, hairless humanoids who, to human eyes, looked like animated skeletons. Their facial features included sharp downward angles, large triangular eye sockets, and sloped-up brows that met together in the middle, lending them an appearance of permanent anguish. The average height of Givins was 1.8 meters.
Because of the harsh environment of their homeworld, the Givin’s organs were sealed away from the atmosphere. Thanks to that, they could survive for a short while in vacuum.
Mathematics were central to the Givin culture. Because of that, many of them became experts in a number of scientific fields. It was polite to address a Givin with an equation for them to answer, a custom known as greeting maths. The Givin would respond with an equation of their own. When dealing with other, less mathematically minded species, Givins would ask an equation with an answer of three for convenience.
