The nacgebig (as they refer to themselves) are a group of human-like bipedal creatures that serve as the dominant species of Hyytelö. Most of the cast of [NAME OF SERIES GOES HERE] are members of the species, or in the case of non-organic lifeforms, are based off of the species.
The general structure of a nacgebig is similar to that of a human, nearly identical in fact.
The nacgebig are an omnivorous species, and plant and animal matter is a part of their diet. Meat is preferred as a source of protein, specifically beef and poultry. Fruits and vegetables are preferred as a source of vitamins and minerals. The average nacgebig requires 2200 kcal to meet their daily energy requirements.
A notable difference between humans and nacgebig is a lower amount of sexual dimorphism between both biological sexes. Although there are differences between the brains and muscular structure of males and females (and said differences have slowly faded over the years), either sex could have a body type that is considered by people who aren't humanoid extraterrestrial lifeforms to be traditionally "masculine" or "feminine". The only major physical difference between the sexes is genitalia. Likewise, thought processes are mostly the same, although male brains are more specialized for "planning" thinking and female brains are specialized for "on the fly" thinking.
Reproduction and developmentEdit
The nacgebig reproduce sexually via conception between a biologically male and biologically female partner. After conception, the developing offspring is carried in the female's womb for two months until a hard shell has formed around it, and then laid by the female for it to develop outside of the female's body and hatch in approximately four to five months. After hatching, the infant nacgebig usually takes the shape of a white blob, and over the course of six months it begins to take on a more bipedal shape as its bones develop further. By the end of the first 12 months of its life, the infant is usually capable of walking short distances and its skin pigmentation will have developed. At the age of thirty months, a nacgebig child will usually know how to read and do simple mathematical operations. The equivalent to puberty typically sets in around fourteen to sixteen years and is a mostly similar experience for both biological sexes, involving the development of the reproductive organs, increased growth, and a desire for individuality. Although the legal age of adulthood is seventeen, development tends to stop around the age of twenty-five.
