Skatex are the main inhabitants of the planet Skana.
Evolving on a world with 0.68 g, they are tall creatures, usually between 1.9 and 2.1 meters. Like most humanoid creatures, they have two arms and two legs. Their hands, however, have three, large and long fingers, almost like tentacles.
Skatex first appeared on Skana almost 2.5 million years ago. They first originated on the dark, icy side of Skana and eventually migrating to the brighter and warmer side.
Space exploration began almost 500 years ago by sending a probe to their nearest planet. They became a Type-I civilization in 1730 and became a Type-II civilization in 1995.
