Final one.

Name: Maluma
Species: Kinanti- Human Hybrid
Home Planet: Konoa
Bio: A rare inter species hybrid, Maluma is the offspring of a Kinanti space farer and a human nurse. As kinanti are a hermaphrodite species Maluma has traits of both sexes, however she prefers to identify as female. She is itentifiable as a human hybrid by her fingers and toes, of which she has more than a normal kinanti (4 compared to 2 on each hand/foot and a lack of a prehensile thumb on each foot) as well as her legs, which are human in structure. She travels with the crew of the Star Voyager Lazarus as the ships weapons technician and security, her main job being making sure that they are protected from space pirates.

Species Fact File- Kinanti
The Kinanti are a sentient, civilized species of bipedal mammals from the planet Intoas V in the Intoas system. They are descended from tree dwelling cat-like beings (such as Konati) and, like their ancestors, are omnivores, but the main bulk of their diet consists of hunted meat. They are ruled over by the Hirr (Leader), who is usually a rare white furred Kinanti. Common fur colours are grey, black, brown (dark and light) and blonde, although colours such as red or ginger can also occur. The Kinanti are supremely adapted to tree dwelling life. They are around 6- 6.6 feet tall and have very muscular bodies. They can lift around 2 tons, nearly 8 times the average Kinanti body weight. They have two fingers and an opposable thumb on each hand, each with a retractable claw, and on their feet they have two forward facing toes and one opposable backwards-facing toe, so they can grip branches whilst standing upright. They have exceptional sight, hearing and smell, so they can hunt their prey in the canopies of their native forests. They are also built to survive immense impacts, such as falling from the tops of trees, due to a layer of endoskeleton underneath their skin, which protects their internal organs from impact damage. The Kinanti can survive forces of up to 30g, with a blackout limit of 20g. This is mainly due to the gravity on Intoas V, which is twice that of Earth. This makes them extremely tough and resilient.
