A near-human species, whose skin varies in shades of red, and hair which ranged from red or blue. Whenever a Zeltron became angry, his or her skin turns a deeper red. Most are considered highly attractive. They are also known for being extremely gullible.
Biology and Appearance
Zeltrons are one of the few near-Human races who have differentiated from the baseline stock enough to be considered a new species of the Human genus, rather than simply a subspecies. They possess two biological traits of note. The first is produce potent pheromones, similar to the Falleen species, which enhances their attractiveness and likeability. The second, Zeltrons experience amplified versions of the feelings of those around them, especially those they care about. Because of this ability, positive emotions such as happiness, love and pleasure became very important to them, while negative ones such as anger, fear, or depression were shunned.
It is said that Zeltrons tend to look familiar to people, even if they have never met before. Most Zeltrons are in excellent physical shape, and their incredible metabolism allows them to eat even the richest of foods.
Society and Culture
Zeltron culture is highly influenced by sexuality and the pursuit of pleasure in general. Most of their art and literature is devoted to the subject, producing some of the raciest pieces in the galaxy. They look upon monogamy as a quaint, but impractical, practice. They are also very gifted with holograms, and are the creators of Hologram Fun World. Their Elixir of Infatuation is notorious for its powerful amorous effects.
Zeltrons are known to dress in wildly colorful or revealing attire. It is common to see Zeltrons wearing shockingly bright shades of neon colors in wildly designed bikinis, or nearly skin tight clothing of other sorts with bizarre color designs, patterns, and symbols.
Zeltrons are often stereotyped as lazy thrill-seekers, owing to their hedonistic pursuits. Indeed, their homeworld of Zeltros thrives as a luxury world and "party planet," as much for their own good as for others. If anyone ian't having a good time on Zeltros, the Zeltrons will certainly know of it, and will do their best to correct it. Though their first inclination is to love, if pushed to do so, Zeltrons can prove to be formidable warriors.
