Remulakians are an indigenous and sapient species who hail from the planet Remulak. They are often known simply as "Coneheads" because of their most prominent feature - their skulls are shaped in such a way that their heads resemble large cones.
Biology[edit | edit source]
They are physically very strong, males of the species have been seen stopping cars and ripping off their roofs. They all seem to posses unique electro-kinetic abilities emanating from the tip of their conical skulls. The touching of cones seems to exchange electrical energies, the act seems to be used much the same was as kissing in human culture.
They appear to have an extremely high metabolic rate, and therefore must eat far larger meals per sitting, and as such, have evolved a massive mouth with three upper rows of sharp teeth (trelgs), and one fairly normal lower row. Those found on Earth have been noted for eating massive quantities of food, drinking entire six packs of a beverage at once, and smoking entire packs of cigarettes all at the same time. They also have a very distinct style of speech, which is very fast, nasal, and monotone.
Culture[edit | edit source]
Remulakians engage in behavior that could be considered strange by human standards. They sleep upright, they practice a form of cremation, a tradition related to Ovahdar the Obtuse. The remains are placed in a clean dry place. They also are known to make sacrifices to an ancient priest called "Krathnor." In their society, the modification of their teeth was considered profane and punishable.
Near the Moons of Meepzor Festival (a holiday), the High Master settles disputes and criminal activity using the ancient ways. There is now a commercial side to the festival, but it used to be only a primitive cultural expression.
Likely due to their advanced culture, they use over-technical dialogue. Food is often called "consumables", and to speak to another, one will say, "I summon you". Also, they often use the terms "parental unit" and "consuming mass quantities". It is interesting to note that their culture seems to be one of dominance, and they are most certainly not above invading other planets.

Technology[edit | edit source]
They are an advanced species, they have mastered intergalactic communication and travel. Their crafts are known to operate using something called a Mentanglion Drive, which seems to be responsible for faster than light travel. Their ships are outfitted with cloaking devices.
History[edit | edit source]
The Remulakians planned an invasion of the planet Earth. They are a race set on conquering other worlds and utilizing said world's raw materials and inhabitants. The High Master sent an advanced starcruiser to the water world to scout for invasionary locations. Unfortunately for him, Beldar forgot to employ the cruiser's cloaking device, and the ship was shot down by F-16 fighter-interceptors from the New Jersey Air National Guard. Crashlanded on Earth, two stranded Remulakians (Beldar and Prymaat) attempted to assimilate themselves into American society and eventually pursued the immigrant's American dream. The two produced a daughter, and took up residence, fooling their foolish neighbors into thinking that they were human by claiming they were from France.
Known Remulakians[edit | edit source]
- Beldar Clorhone
- Prymaat Clorhone
- Connie (Conjaab) Clorhone
- Lerbscrab (High Master)
- Plornak (High Master's Mentott)
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Created by Dan Aykroyd, he has stated that he developed the idea for the "Coneheads" from the Moai, the ancient and mysterious stone statue heads on Easter Island, which have a similar conical head shape.
