Species Name: Gyraci
Physiological Description: The body of a Gyrac is built from a spine running vertically about 150cm long. The upper spine forms a hook-like shape on the top fifty centimeters, with the end hanging roughly even with the rest of the spine. The neck is extremely flexible, and the hook-shape is only for a relaxed posture.

The upper portion of the face is shaped like two round-cornered equilateral triangles placed with their edges together at a 115 degree angle, with a rough rhombus-shape attached to the bottom. In the center of each of these so-called “triangles” is a large bulbous eye. The jaw is part of the rhombus-shape, with limited left, right, forward, and backward movement. Gyrac lack any noticeable lips, and with the mouth closed, the seam where it parts is nearly invisible.

On top of the Gyrac's head is a muscular stalk with a third eye on top, capable of large degrees of movement. A Gyrac is capable of viewing from this eye at will, though it takes much practice to view with all three eyes at once. A Gyrac has long ears that protrude from the top of the head, partially in the rear, and extend down and backwards almost even with the hook in the neck. Like much of the Gyrac's body, these are incredibly flexible and capable of a wide range of motion from the base.

The Gyraci's ribcage takes up about a third of the spine's length, and contains most of a Gyrac's vital organs. They have two hearts resting side by side in the top center of the ribcage, with a pair of lungs on either side of them. Their liver occupies much of the space below the hearts but above the bottom of the lungs, and the kidneys also take up some of that space. The Gyraci digestive system takes up a little less than the bottom half of the ribcage, and waste is expelled through a pair of holes in the back of the ribcage, with one hole on either side of the spine.

The Gyraci abdomen appears incredibly thin, as they have no waist to speak of. A large portion of muscle mass begins at the bottom of the ribcage and slowly tapers to the top of the pelvic region. This mass is deceivingly thin in appearance, but Gyraci muscle fibers are packed incredibly dense.

The pelvis holds all the reproductive organs. In males, it contains a proboscis that extends during reproduction, and four large 'seed' producers that are roughly ellipsoidal. In females it contains the womb and a reception orifice that leads to the womb. The lining of the womb produces the Gyraci DNA, which breaks down the 'seed' capsule the male deposits in the orifice, and merges the two different DNAs. The gestation period lasts roughly three Terran months before the young is expelled through the reception organ and tended to by “brood mothers” who are also watching over other younglings. Over the next few months, the younglings grow rapidly, going from less than twenty centimeters in length to fifty or seventy five centimeters.

The legs of a Gyrac are no exception to the flexibility rule. They are double jointed, capable of going from knee-forward to knee-backward, with the latter being a pseudo-digitigrade stance often used for leaping or running. The long toes of the Gyraci lend themselves to this variable movement, supporting the body in the pseudo-digitigrade stance. The arms of the Gyraci have little of particular note. They hang below the pelvis a little ways, and have three long fingers and a thumb on each hand with four joints and bulged fingertips similar to those of a gecko.

Biological History: To be decided at a later time.

Social Structure: As the differences between the sexes of Gyraci are purely reproductive, there has been no reason to socially divide the two. Likewise, adolescent Gyraci and elderly Gyraci are not socially divided, due to the lack of any sort of age-based degradation. Children are considered extremely precious as they are born fragile but full of potential.

Native Culture: To be decided during roleplay.
Factions: Gyraci Independence Movement, Commonwealth of Congruent States
