The Martians are a sapient humanoid civilization native to the planet Mars.
Physically, they look very much like humans, although larger and with oversized heads that are completely bald and toothless. There doesn't seem to be any sexual dimorphism in this species, meaning that males and females look perfectly identical. In fact, individual variation in this species appears to be nonexistent, as they all exhibit the same pale skin and emotionless faces. Their blood is red like human blood.
Culture and societyEdit
By a most fantastic coincidence, the Martians' language has evolved in a parallel way to become identical to English. Lord Redgrave has suggested that this evolution is to be expected for such a culturally advanced race, but it's reasonable to say that this is a rather biased opinion, coming from a proud Englishman like him.
