Deunan Parahuman.

“There are quite a few of the Deunans around here. You don’t really notice the bigger craniums since most of them have a good head of hair. They’re quite attractive once you get used to the big eyes. Funny thing is when I first saw them I had this nagging feeling of familiarity. Could not put my finger on why! It was Felix who eventually pointed it out. They look like animie characters!”

Like many parahuman designs the Deunans are intended to have increased intelligence and reduced susceptibility to many of the medical conditions baseline humans are prone to.

The most distinctive feature of the Deunans are their larger eyes. Their noses tend to be small and not particularly prominent. The cranium and forehead are larger but this is not particularly noticeable. Baldness is rare whilst females lack leg and axillary hair.
Skin shade is typically a golden brown, although there is considerable variation between individuals. Skin can tan to much darker shades of brown. Prolonged exposure to weaker sunlight and low vitamin D levels can cause skin tone to lighten.
Natural hair colours include various shades of blonde, grey, white, brown, red, orange and black. Eyes may be grey, blue, yellow, brown or green. Actual hair and eye colour may be different due to cosmetic procedures.
Like many parahumans the Deunan constitute a visibly distinct ethnic type. Deunans were designed as mukokuseki. While they closely resemble baseline humans they do not appear to belong to any of the distinct baseline human racial types. They are not particularly Oriental, African, Mediterranean, Middle-Eastern or European. They would most likely be mistaken for being of mixed race if it were not for the larger eyes.
