Faantines were humanoid and stood about 2.2 meters tall, had slimy skin and bifurcated jaw-less mouths that made them appear quite hideous. Whether due to anatomy or simple disposition, Faantine faces had no discernible expressions.
Faant was settled and dominated by Orions and governed by Klingons, but the three races got on with relative harmony. The Faantines apparently revered the Klingons as deities, and thus were quick to obey their orders and instructions. They did most of the agricultural work on Faant for the Klingons.
