Physical Description[edit]

Shakurans are tall cyclops-like humanoids that hail from another world. A Shakuran's height can be anything from middle-high five feet to well over six feet tall. They usually possess spiky hair the color of which ranges from white to pink to purple, sharp teeth and pointed ears. They have one large eye and skin of many diverse colors from white to light-blue to dark-blue to black with crack-shaped markings that start from their eyes and cover most of their bodies that can also be any color of the mentioned range.

A Male Shakuran


The Shakurans were born on a planet with very harsh conditions and thus have evolved to have strong regenerative abilities. They are adaptable and know how to get around and survive almost anywhere. Over time Shakurans split into a few different subtypes, and they diverged into different paths of evolution, finding different methods of survival.


The Shakuran people are spread very thin, very few are left existing out in the world after a mass-slaughter of their race by a particular godly being. Thus Shakurans are EXTREMELY unlikely to ever form any type of society. A very select few ever meet another Shakuran that is not part of their family in their lifetime. Wherever they appear they draw attention, either because they are not like anyone else or simply because they are a near-extinct species.
