The Duros, sometimes known as Durosians are a humanoid species native to the planet Duro who were among the galaxy’s first space faring races.

The Duros are humanoids with smooth blue-green skin, red eyes, lipless mouths and long thin noseless faces. Olfactory glands beneath their eyes are responsible for their sense of smell. Both females and males are bald, though both genders are easily distinguished. Their large red goggle-like eyes also have slit pupils.

While usually taciturn, Duros enjoy telling stories about their travels. It is said Duros have a photographic memory when it comes to the telling of tales and stories. Many Duros are pilots and explorers, and are adventurous, though sometimes rash. As one of the first cultures to develop hyperdrive spacecraft (some even believe the first), Duros-charted trade routes are among the oldest hyperspace routes still in use during to this day.

Unlike most humanoids, Duros lay eggs, usually in specially prepared nests. After the young Duros hatch, they are cared for and educated by their families.

As the Duros took to the stars, much of their planet became increasingly polluted. As Duros political power was transferred from ancient royal rulers to a wealthy coalition of interstellar shipping firms, all connection to ancestral roots were severed. The Duros people embarked on a bold era of expansion, choosing to live in orbital cities or far-flung colony worlds.
