Planet: Halana. Humanoid and perhaps dark-skinned natives of Halana who rejoiced over Dr. Seyetik's terraforming of the paradise-like New Halana. They mate for life and carry abilities of psychoprojective telepathy, which runs amok unintentionally and without knowledge during bouts of emotional stress. Seyetik's wife, Nidell, is a native daughter of a local dignitary who had never been off-world.
