Khitons

Humanity’s most direct natural competition is the race of humanoid chitinoids called khitons. Similar in general shape to humans and ulari, khitons can be mistaken for them from a distance or when covered in robes, but up close their differences are unmistakable. Like most chitinoids, khitons have two pairs of eyes, a primary pair and a smaller, secondary pair an inch or so below them, and their jaws open horizontally and are filled with rows of grinding plates. Their chests come to a ridged point down their center; their throats and stomach are covered in a soft, semi-transparent membrane, while the rest of their skin is a rubbery chitin that wrinkles heavily at their joints. While they are not as driven to expand, khitons are roughly as widespread and diverse as humans, and many communities are composed of both races.
