The Mergalin nervous system operates at low level electrical pulses. They
are Cobalt based, lending itself to their natural blue appearance. The
ability to change tones comes from the chemicals stored within what
equates to the adrenal gland.
The skin is thick due to extreme weather conditions and are capable of
handling intense pain. Mergalins hibernate during periods of sub zero
weather and conversely extreme heat causes body functions to become
sligtly disfunctional but they are still capable of functioning far
longer than most humans. They are also capable of handling higher levels
of radiation that would kill a human.
While Mergalins have high physical stamina, they can not handle quick
changes in temperature and Oxygen rich environments cause them
disorientation and vertig, cured by shots of cobalt solutions.
Mergalin blood is poisonous to humans. Mergalin metabolism is slower
than a humans and carbonated beverages are intoxicating, effects are
similiar to alchohol.
The Mergalin immune system also has a unique way of attacking virii. It
is capable of developing its own chemical attacks on foreign bodies.
Anything that does not belong is sampled and by a small parasite that is
required by the system, then the proper cure is released. Mergalins are
long lived and seldom ill.
