Description (Initial Observations): These 9 feet tall humanoids have two heads and four arms.

Description (Additional Observations): Orlens are tall two-headed humanoids with four arms. Peaceful by nature, they are exceptionally intelligent and collect artifacts of all sorts. A typical orlen will possess artifacts of Tech Levels IV or V. In addition to the older artifacts they may have, all orlens carry an assortment of Tech Level II and III weapons and tools. (The GM will need to remember to add to the XP Value for an orlen based on what artifacts it is carrying.) Orlens prefer not to resolve problems by combat, but their size, strength, and armament ensure that they will not be caught unprepared when trouble comes looking for them. All orlens have a dual name, one for the left head and one for the right, such as Jan-Jane, Maura-Maureen, Tim-Tom, and KevinCalvin. When an orlen talks, the heads alternate speaking.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: Each Oren head will have one extra mental mutation. Their mutation of Dual Brain gives Orleans superior mental abilities. They will each carry Tech Level 1 or 2 gear, and one piece of tech level 4-6 gear.

Behavior: Behavior not recorded

Society: Many orlens are wanderers, but there is a significant segment of the species that likes to settle down. The only orlen settlement of any significant size is Jainus, a fairly large city. Nomadic orlens are peaceful and gentle. The urban orlens are more aggressive and love sporting events, particularly those with a lot of physical contact. There is a story that the Orlens descend from a stable race of humans from before the great disaster. This story says that humans from that time speak of a great thinker named Aristophanes whose goal was to reunite humanity to its orignal form before their war with the Gods.
