-they are born with incredibly bad eyesight, and can only see bright colors.
-their hair never stops growing, so when traveling, they usually use their huge amounts of hair as a bed mat, or blankets.
-their hooves help them walk greater distances without needing new shoes.
-their ears are incredibly sensitive, and also double as pouches. the upper two are supposed to be used for carrying children, and the bottom two are supposed to be for carrying goods.
more devoted traders use the upper two for carrying goods as well, which stretches them out and makes them useless for their intended purpose. the more strain put on their ears, the larger the pouches become.
-on their tail is a light sensor, to tell if it's nighttime on their long journeys, and also serves as a sensitive vibration detector, able to pick up footsteps from up to 50 yards away, when dragging on the ground.
-they have slight camouflage abilities, that allow them to blend in with the people from the planet they are trading with.
-they can live up to 150 years old.
-they try to expose as little skin as possible, since when they travel they don't want to get sunburned
-they keep their hair rolled up around a short sword on the back of their head, for defense
-they are very superstitious and believe that certain kinds of stone will give them luck, and wear them all over for good fortune.
-they are born almost completely blind. They believe that if anyone sees their eyes, it will steal their soul, so they usually wear blindfolds or other eye coverings.
-they wear leg armor underneath their robes, to prevent injury to their legs that would prevent them from traveling.
-since they carry a lot of weight on their necks, neck injury and strain is very common. they wear supportive collars to prevent this.
-often times they will string their money on themselves, or have it melted down into jewelry, to prevent getting robbed.
-as traders, they are known for trading fine dyes and textiles, but can be found selling anything from car parts, to fine perfumes.
-when meeting another on the road, it is customary to spend three nights together, for rest. If they get along, they dye a portion of each other's hair on the third night, as a way of cementing their friendship, and showing others that they know each other. The more stripes a trader has, the more trustworthy they are considered.
-if two Heikia want to get married, or pledge their devotion to each other, they trade the jewel hanging off of their sword.
-they spend a lot of their life alone, often leaving their parents when they are 16, to start their own journey, rarely seeing them again.
-they don't have much of a standardized culture, as they end up adopting a mixture of all of the customs of the planets and countries they travel through, however they do have a native language, only spoken to their own kind.
-they have a natural aptitude for picking up languages, and a lot of charisma, because of their long history of being international traders.
-some Heikia break off from the path of being nomadic traders, to start more traditional businesses, but the urge to travel never leaves them.
-they are often thought to be magical, because of their air of mystery, and foreign mannerisms.
