Drasal are short, rubbery aliens that have no bones or hard body parts. They are translucent, colorblind, and (since their skin contains their scent receptors), possess an extremely keen sense of smell.
Of the alien races encountered thus far, Humanity gets along best with the Drasal. Technologically, the two species are fairly comparable.Drasal are widely known for their strange sense of humor. They love old jokes and puns that make Humans groan. Many Human comedians who could not find work in Human cities have become rich performlng on Drasal worlds. They do not normally wear clothing, because it makes breathing difficult and interferes with their sense of smell. They usually carry their equipment on web belts. When they must wear clothing to protect themselves, they use special materials that let air reach their skin.
