The Maekri are an avian race that evolved on a volcanic planet, where most plantlife floats in the air bouyed by sacks of lighter than air gas. They tend to not wear much clothing, jewelry, or any body apparel as that hampers flight. This particular Maekri is a pilot in their stellar military forces. The torque about it's neck is really the only sort of military uniform the Maekri have-it's engraved with images depicting rank, clan, and battles. The spear it is carrying is ceremonial.
