 Taller than the average human being, Ancients stand at a rough average of 5ft 6in [167cm]. This height can differ drastically on both sizes, as common gene mutations effect growth. The skin of an Ancient is not much unlike our own in texture and often color, however the hair and eyes have a much more diverse range of pigments. Eye pigmentation in older Arindyne civilizations often played an important role in placement of a certain caste system. Because of this, breeding for eye color due to the old belief the certain eye colors deemed one as the son of a deity (silver), or a member of the working caste (blue), was a common practice in the Ancient culture. Hair color, while not part of the old caste system, still comes in a diverse range of natural flavors like embers, greens, and deep reds. Blacks, whites, and most lighter blondes aren't not as common place, but they do occur. Taller than the average human being, Ancients stand at a rough average of 5ft 6in [167cm].

-One powerful distinguishing feature of the Ancient, and [[yurisuto:​races:​Destine]],​ races, is an additional sensory appendage. There are two ear-like appendages. One of them is a "​fleshy"​ ear used to govern outside temperature and to determine balance. Though this ear can be used for hearing, it rarely is and is better suited for other function. The other pair called “[[yurisuto:​objects:​olen]]” are long feathery opposable digits used to pick up subtle changes in air pressure. Each of them can be controlled, can function independently,​ can be nearly 9 inches in length, and are remarkably sensitive. A sad Ancients'​ olen will point downward, where as, a excited Ancient will perk her olen upward. Other than as and emotional identifier, individual control is used exclusively for hearing. The "​ear"​ almost points straight out from the head. From the side an outside observer can see that the ears clearly angle pointing to the back of the head at a near 45 degree angle. They are normally over 5 inches long.+One powerful distinguishing feature of the Ancient, and [[yurisuto:​races:​Destine]],​ races, is an additional sensory appendage.
