The khepri are an insect-like race whose males and females develop quite differently. The males appear to be a species of very large, unintelligent beetles. The female khepri have heads that resemble the male khepri, but they have developed humanoid bodies, and developed intelligence far beyond the simple minds of the khepri males. Because of this disparity, khepris have a matriarchal society.
Khepri communicate with each other through smell, giving off a chemical spray that they can smell and understand. Khepri may use sign language when they need to communicate with non-khepri.
Khepri heads feature both an inner jaw and an outer jaw. The outer jaw can hold food in place while eating with the inner jaw.
