The Apex race is a largely unknown species originating from the 43896 Apex System. The species is highly unusual in that it has no set form, rather being a tangle of muscle tissue and small organs seemingly immune to the effects of a vacuum. Some believe the Apex Race to be a highly advanced offshoot of the Flesh, but there is no proof to these claims. Members of the Apex race are capable of contorting their formless bodies into many compact spaces, and the more self-conscious members of the species will seek out ATEK android skin plates to create a humanoid appearance. The species is capable of speaking Galactic Standard, but is highly shunned for their disturbing appearance and shifty mannerisms. Few ever leave their home planet, as they are a largely xenophobic and isolationist species, although being an officially recognized colony under the Coalition.
