Behind the Scenes
Universe "Alien Faces"

Kurjas are predatory animals native to the tidally-locked world of Aranel, in orbit around a red dwarf star.


They resemble jackals in Africa, and they see in infrared vision as they inhabit the darker regions of their tidally-locked homeworld. They hunt in packs, constantly hunting Pinapods or herds of them, as they have two sets of eyes: two large yellow ones in the front similar to the eyes of an owl which are used to see normally, and two small blue ones in the back that allow them to see in the infrared spectrum, detecting the heat signatures of their prey or anything around them.
