Ismiks from the planet Ismik, and are highly regarded as medical experts in medicine and biology across the universe.
The Ismiks are human in appearance, with black hair, chalk white skin, as well as possession of ten fingers and toes. But they all have one distint feature: their bodies are covered in line tattoos that are confused for birthmarks. As part of their biology and history, the tattoos are actually nanotech injected into keyline areas on their bodies to enable them to manipulate their forms. It also helps regulate their vitals as they're changing to and back.
Ismiks hail from the planet Ismik.
