Oktavians are a warm blooded humanoid species native to the moon Oktavia. They stand and average of seven feet and subjects standing as high as eight feet is not unusual. Their skin varies from light to dark gray, with the occasional pure white or blue black person being born. Their ears are small at birth but then quickly grown through their childhood into adulthood. Starting in middle age the ears begin to shrink as the outer lobes begin to calcify and break off.
Oktavian's government consists of a series of corporations that co-run the society. Oktavians are able to purchase stock in their various corporations to have a greater say in how things are run and strict regulations are in place insuring a limit on how much stock an individual may own in order to avoid the damaging monopolies that have brought their world near the brink of ruin before.
Due to the nature of their environment agoraphobia (A fear of open spaces) is not uncommon.
