During your time on station you may find yourself face to face (or face to mirror) with the not quite human. Be they aliens, mutated humans, or self aware constructs you're expected to try and coexist on this deathtrap. Learning their quirks can be key to knowing how to keep them amicable in times of peace, and easy to put down in times of strife.

There are currently a bunch of playable specices in Delta-V. Each has their own distinct stats, strengths, and weaknesses.

Every species passively heal BRUTE and HEAT damage over time as long as they have less than a total of 20 damage.
