History:
Harzen used to be a hospitable planet with abundant wildlife. The gulderos had a thriving civilization. They hadn’t mastered space travel yet, but they were fairly advanced in other areas. Harzen was hit with a planet-wide nuclear bomb, however, which changed the planet into a desolate wasteland. The bomb didn’t kill off the gulderos, since they were always a hardy species (and because they’re immune to radiation). It made their lives a lot less comfortable, though. They now have to hunt and scavenge for their food and water, and they have to spend more effort to avoid being killed themselves.

Other Info:
Gill Slits – The gill slits on gulderos’ heads allow them to breathe both air and water. While the gulderos could theoretically live underwater, they almost always choose to live on land instead. This is only partially because there isn’t a lot of water left for them to live in.

Nostrils – The gulderos’ nostrils are merely for detecting scents. Gulderos cannot use their nostrils to breathe.

Survival Skills – Gulderos are taught from birth to be expert survivalists, since life on their planet is harsh and requires excellent survival skills.
