The Snovemdomas evolved as pack-hunting predators in woods and tundra plains on a very high-gravity world. Snovemdomas are about the size of a bear, and their stocky build is deceptive since they are quick and graceful in motion. To the inhabitants of other worlds, they appear to be imposing and massive. On their own world, the Snovemdomas preyed on much larger and tougher creatures, bringing the prey down by overwhelming it with numbers and speed. Their bodies evolved strength and lightness (too much mass being detrimental in high gravity), and their bones are made of a hollow but nearly unbreakable force-distributing honeycomb lattice.
Because of the high-gravity environment on their home world they have always had to allow for greater stress in designing their dwellings and machines. Their material science is advanced and they make use of strong, light composite materials in their construction. It is in their nature to design ships that can withstand great force.
