The Nympus are the native sapient inhabitants of Ganymede.
They're described as grotesque beings with short knee-less legs (jointed only at the hip and ankle), long arms webbed to their bodies by a membrane, and noseless faces which are almost hidden by the mushroom-like format of the top of their heads.
Culture and societyEdit
They build up floating houses which can be carried over long distances during the flood seasons.
