A nander (pl. nander) is a sapient creature.

Nander are similar to humans, except with shorter, stockier bodies (average height: 127 cm). The head appears comparatively large because the changes to growth pattern affect the head much less than other parts of the body. Some breeds are hairy; others are no hairier than humans.

It is thought that they are optimized over generations for extraction of minerals below the surface of the polar regions.

Out-of-universe

Influences on the design of nander include fantasy dwarves, the various hypochondroplasias, and Fisher-Price's Little People.
