Ferrans are the native inhabitants of a high-gravity world that disappeared into a massive black hole several decades ago. The surviving ferrans live in a sprawling complex on a moon which once orbited their home world but is now held in place just outside of the black hole’s event horizon. Though the moon base is self-sufficient, ferrans are just another disaster away from becoming completely wiped out.

Ferrans are short, squat humanoids with constantly furrowed brows and bald heads. Much of ferran tradition is rooted in science, and as such, they tend to be agnostics and atheists. Compared to other species, the ferran population is relatively small; they will eventually need to do something to grow their numbers if they wish to secure their continuation as a species.
