The Na'vi

The biography on the Pandora native species.

How, What, Who?

Pandora is the fifth moon of the gas giant Polyphemus, which orbits the closest star to the sun, Alpha Centauri A. Discovered by Dr. James Cameron using his company Lightstorm, his crew used space telescopes at some point between 2050 and 2077, and discovered Pandora. Finding Pandora has been one of the greatest scientific finding to happen to the human race in hundreds of years.

Dr. James Cameron was originally trying to get to Polyphemus, when his ship needed to refuel so they landed on Pandora. Dr. Cameron noticed a species that was very similar to the human species on Earth, and he canceled his mission to Polyphemus and dedicated his research to understanding and knowing the creatures on Pandora.

Pandora is a moon to the gas giant Polyphemus, which has thirteen other moons. However, even though Pandora is around the same size as Earth, its gravity is 20% less than Earth's. Due to Pandora's lower gravity, most creatures on Pandora are hexapods (six-legged), but the Na'vi (the human like species) have only two legs. Wild species travel in the air and roam forest canopy below, similar to Earth's animals, but on a scale several times larger. Pandora's wildlife also have bioluminescent traits. Since Polyphemus has several moons, during the night there could be many moons in view of the sky, even three moons in its sky at once.

Visually Pandora's lush paradise is similar to Earth's standards during the day, but at night, almost all life on the moon shows off it's bioluminescent qualities in various shades of blue, purple and green. Most plants light up the night with just a single touch, while others light on their own. This possibly explains the Na'vi's blue skin color, which most likely provides a better camouflage at night on Pandora.

Appearance of the Na'vi

The Na'vi species have blue skin with purple undertones, the different shades of hue causing different stripes of color on their skin. Their face has a feline quality to it, since their ears and nose are similar to cats. They breath through their nostrils, just as humans do, and use their lungs to circulate their blood. Their skin has little body hair, only visible on their cranium and the tip of their tail. The Na'vi body resembles the human body, but the they are much taller and thinner than humans. There isn't any visible body fat on them, since the Na'vi are quite active. Their eyes are four times the volume of human eyes, and are colored with green and gold shades. The Na'vi's skull is smaller than the human head, which causes their body proportions to be different. They have two legs, but they have a tail which is used for balance when the Na'vi travel and climb, but the tip of the tail is used for bonding with animals and other Na'vi members on a spiritual level. The Na'vi are heterotrophic, and get their source of nutrition from the forest they live in, which is supplied with many food sources (fruits, meat from animals, vegetables, and fresh water).
