this is a species of sentient avians from the Q'nithian System. They are quite ugly in appearance, being covered with dingy gray feathers and equally gray skin. Their wings are useless, rendering the aeropteryx flightless, and its small legs are incapable of supporting their bodies. Thus, the aeropteryx must drag itself forward with the tips of its wings. The tips end with a small hand that it tipped with a pair of talons. Their two beady, black eyes provide minimal ability to actually see what's around them. Thus, many aeropteryx who travel the galaxy have specialized lenses to augment their natural sight.
